This link was open on my desktop for a couple of days, so I forgot its source.  www.shouldexist.org is a nice way to collect ideas that may turn into new products or projects. Something similar can subsctitute companies' "suggestion boxes".

  How to write usability report

How to write usability report by Bruce Tognazzini:

  • The opening paragraph
    • Say something nice in the opening paragraph
    • Make the benefits explicit
  • Headings
    • In observational reviews, outline improvement ideas, not criticisms
    • In usability study reports, use simple topic headings
  • Content
    • Know the product's or service's users
    • Know your readers
    • Accentuate the positive, but deliver the news
    • Don't overreach
    • When in doubt, recommend testing
    • Check your grammar and spelling

  e-learning ballons: Learner at work!

TechLearn TRENDS #245:

e-Learning Balloons: One of our readers wrote in about their attempt to help e-Learners with some privacy during real-time sessions. Their company has made up a set of printed balloons, that say Learner At Work! They blow them up and tie them to cubicles or chairs during longer on-line sessions. They report it helps with both privacy and also publicizing the growing rate of e-Learning in their area. Of course, some learners are also inhaling a bit of the helium and changing their voice sound during on-line chats.

  Too many RSS feeds

I'm subsribed to too many RSS feeds: I don't have time to keep up. So, I have to options: (1) to learn how to scan them without in-depth reading or commenting, or (2) unsubscribe and leave only some of them (preferably those that filter the rest :)

  Added value of knowledge sharing

Small example: I was commenting in the discussion about corporate universities and thought of recommending a book (Beyond Training and Development by William J. Rothwell). While searching for it I found this summary, which is a good help not only for those without the book, but for myself as well. One page up I found this list of KM/e-learning book summaries and I'm already busy printing :).

You never know what waits for you when you answer someone's question!
