This site is for anyone who wants to help their organization think through why and how to build digital capacity and integrate an online learning program into their content publishing and engagement strategies. It’s also for those who like to read poems.
Having an integrated digital approach can help groups put learning in the centre of what they do online. It can also spare the world from the creation of more soul-destroying e-learning that doesn’t do anyone any good.
So a key goal of this site is to help you make the case to integrate online learning into your organization’s digital strategy – and to help you make a plan that works for you.
