I know this is completely out of context, but when I saw the title of what this week’s blog post would be, I couldn’t help thinking of the quote “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way” … delivered of course, by the inimitable celluloid personage of Jessica Rabbit in the 1988 movie, Who Framed Roger Rabbit. (And if you haven’t seen it, it’s a fun one!) I draw the parallel here because it’s all about impressions. And in regards to this topic, “bad” may just mean bad for YOU… or your company… at this particular stage in your eLearning lifecycle.Read More
Don’t worry, I’m not really going to sit here and offer a ground-breaking 600-word analysis on how to guarantee you choose the best Learning Management System for your organisation.
