1. College & Corporate Learning - Collaboration Article: I have written the cover story article for EDUCAUSE on “Collaboration Between Higher Education and Corporate Learning”.  There are so many areas where corporations and colleges are facing similar challenges and opportunities ranging from pushing Learning Management Systems to changing faculty teaching modes to getting research on the efficiency and impact of various learning technologies.  Yet, there is very little structured collaboration between our two worlds. EDUCAUSE represents the technology directors of several thousand colleges and universities and we will be working closely with them to bridge the gap.

2. Fresh New MASIE.COM Website: We have freshened up our MASIE Center website, including hundreds of hours of video segments, free ebooks and articles. Check it out at

3. Learning Directions: Internal Brands & Rituals - One of the topics that we will be addressing in our upcoming Learning Directions events (Chicago and New York City) is Internal Learning Brands. We believe that there is great confusion amongst learners and managers about various learning approaches.  For instance, in many organizations, the webinar is seen as an easy-to-dual-task activity with lower levels of engagement. In others, eLearning is seen as a compliance oriented, check-the-box activity rather than performance driven. We will address how we rebrand and reposition internal learning brands. There are a few spots left in each of the Learning Directions events. Information at

Yours in learning,
