10 Blogs Every eLearning Professional Should Read
Recently my friend Ryan Tracey posted a list of 10 journals every e-learning professional should read in response to my list of 5 Books Every eLearning Professional Should Read which was in response to his 5 papers every learning professional should read (this feeling like the blogging equivalent to a game of tennis).
So I’m returning the ball with a list of blogs that are worth checking out if you are an eLearning professional and you are looking to improve your craft as each blog is written by someone working in the field. They’re a mixture of writing styles and content – sharing practical tips, showing their work and lessons learned, looking towards the future of online learning and some offer reflections on their own personal learning. Many of these folks can also be found on Twitter and LinkedIn.
The one thing that each blog has in common is that the author is making a positive contribution to the wider eLearning field (IMHO).
Here’s each of the blog authors listed in alphabetical order (click on a name to go to their site):
Kristin Anthony – Kristin also has a podcast series called ‘Dear ID’ where she interviews instructional designers
Helen Blunden – Activate Learning Solutions
Donald Clark – Plan B
Tom Kuhlmann – The Rapid E-Learning blog
Melissa Milloway Mel’s Learning Lab (Mel also writes articles via LinkedIn)
Cathy Moore – Saving the world from boring training
Clark Quinn – Learnlets
Mike Taylor – Ask. Learn. Share
Will Thalheimer – Will at Work Learning
Christy Tucker – Experiencing E-Learning
I’m also adding Ryan Tracey himself whose blog I came across a few years ago and s one of the first I started to read on a regular basis.
Feel free to add to this list via the comments below.
