Back in business

without comments

Does this happen to you too? You are an addicted blogger. You take a short break (merely 4 days). You come back and your feed reader shows more than 100 unread posts and you feel totally lost as to where to begin!

As mentioned earlier, I went to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a couple of days. One was a normal sales presentation cum e-Learning primer for a University. Nothing special happened there, apart from a simple, basic question that came from the audience. I was asked – what are the “negative points” of e-Learning? A simple and straightforward question, but I gasped and talked my way through – wasn’t able to give a proper answer. Anyone out there to help me out? Also, this is the first time I used the PowerPoint antitoxin-kit of Cliff Atikson. I must say, that it works, although I have a long way to go! Thanks Cliff.

Next, we (my colleague Asu and I) went for the kick-off meeting of a very interesting project. I believe this is the first time I will be able to blog about my work (I always envy my friends in academia who can talk about their work in their blogs). A project funded by UNDP on a user guide for free and open source software like the Linux desktop and OpenOffice. What’s cooler is that the end product of the project will be free and open source too! I will write more about that after getting approval from them.

Now coming back to the original dilemma – where to resume blogging?

Till now I have managed to read a few of the posts (only in the e-learning and KM group of my reader). These look interesting –

2. Where to focus your design effort from Dusk and dawn

4. Thinking About Interaction Design by Philip van Allen Via: elearningpost (quite a blog echo – it’s almost everywhere!)
