9 - McDonalds Honors Technology & Learning; Presentations over the Net

1. McDonalds Honors Technology & Learning! Last night, I had the honor of presenting the keynote speech at McDonalds Corporation's Tribute to Technology & Learning. 150 training and technology professionals from organizations throughout the Chicago area gathered at Hamburger University http://www.mcdonalds.com/careers/hambuniv/index.html for an evening of dialogue and partying. Organized by Diane Cain, McDonald's Director of the STASS Institute for Computer Learning, the proceeds from the formal dress party benefited the Ronald McDonald House and the American Technology Honor Society. Diane's staff reached out to include members of Chicago Board of Education in the festivities to build the corporate-school connection. What a great idea for a holiday party!

2) Book Suggestion: TechnoStress! Here is a great book that will get you and your colleagues thinking about the impact of technology on our lives, families and organizations. The authors, Michelle Weil and Larry Rosen even address the role of training and learning intensity. Information and on-line ordering links at: TechnoStress: Coping With Technology @WORK @HOME @PLAY

3) Presentations over the Net: Eloquent Ships Presenter 3.0 Here is a cool new tool to present presentations over the internet. Even at low bandwidth levels, users can view a video of the presenter, view the presentation slides and follow along with a transcript. The transcript is searchable by phrase, so the presentation can be viewed in linear or user driven order. Check it out at http://www.eloquent.com

There still a few seats available in our January 1998 session: The Road to On-Line Learning LAB & Seminar to be held in Saratoga Springs, New York. See http://www.masie.com/lab for details.
