Learning Blogs that LINGOs Members Like – Your Favorites Here?

At the 2011 LINGOs Member Meeting in Seattle, Articulate’s Community Manager Tom Kuhlmann shared his wisdom and Lessons for Learning from a Global Learning Community (his community has approximately 108,000 members!). Among his tips:

  • Make it Easy
  • Curate information
  • Recognize expertise

We will use the LINGOs blog to curate, tag and share some of the wealth of knowledge and expertise from the LINGOs community that is shared in the LINGOs Group on LinkedIn. That group does two of Tom’s three points. It’s an easy way to participate and LinkedIn provides a good way to share and recognize expertise. However, it is not presently easy to search.

This post, complied from the LINGOs Group Discussion on LinkedIn by Penny Whittaker, Freelance Instructional Designer and eLearning Developer, curates the Learning Blogs that LINGOs Members Like.
