Using what you have: Free sound editor

Hardly anyone knows that Windows loads with a free sound recording/editing tool:
Start--programs--accessories--entertainment--sound recorder
Good for recording sounds and simple editing like creating a loop, cutting a sound clip in half, etc.
Not terribly sophisticated but I use it a lot in creating PPT shows.

Book Update --and MS Producer?

I just got word that release of "E-Learning Solutions on a Shoestring: Help for the Chronically Underfunded Trainer" has been moved up! Books will ship from the warehouse on Sept 9. Stay tuned...

I'm interested in hearing from users of MS Producer. Good? Easy to use and launch? Feedback, good or bad? You can post below--as "anonymous" if you don't want to create an identity--or write to me if you'd prefer.

Live & Online from New Orleans

Couldn't make it to the Big Easy? Many of the sessions are available at the "Live & Online" conference-within-a-conference. Those on a limited budget can hear recordings of sessions led by speakers like Lance Dublin, Brandon Hall, Sharon Bowman, Kit Horton, Thiagi (and me!).

E-learning basics

I had a lot of questions in New Orleans from folks new to e-learning who are having a hard time getting a handle on it all. I highly recommend Patti Shank and Amy Sitze's Making Sense of Online Learning (Pfeiffer, 2004) and Thomas Toth's Technology for Trainers (ASTD, 2003) as good starting places. Also see the e-learning centre uk's site and work your way down the links on the left side of the screen. Happy surfing!
