“…2009 may well prove to be the most significant year in the evolution of the book since Gutenberg hammered out his original Bible.”
Wall Street Journal. April 20, 2009
On the cover of today’s Wall Street Journal’s The Journal Report, is a very interesting article by Steven Johnson called: “How the eBook will Change the Way We Read and Write.” The above quote is in his article. It essentially describes with the digitization of books, the entire game has changed on the purchase, sharing, communicating, writing, etc. of books. A very interesting read…
Use the replace all for eBooks and insert “eLearning 2.0”. 2009 will be the year that eLearning changes and eLearning 2.0 is embraced by corporations and institutions. Why? The promise was always there, the technology has not been. And like Amazon’s Kindle™ and Sony’s Reader™, eLearning 2.0 is available now. A recent survey – top 2 boxes equal 72% – by the eLearning Guild Research shows strong evidence that eLearning 2.0 initiatives are worth the effort in organizations.
If you read the article and consider all the powerful dynamics Steven Johnson describes that the electronic book will provide and consider an electronic learning management platform for corporations and institutions, you have TOPYX™.
