  1. I really enjoyed the blogs that you reviewed and blogged about. I am already subscribe to the Rapid E-Learning Blog hosted by Tom Kuhlmann and i find that he does bring a vast amount of great ideas to his site. I have used many of them in my Articulate presentations at work. The Upside Learning blog is one that I have not seen and just from a brief reading of some of the articles it found it to be a valuable resource and added it to my aggregator. I will refer to it for both my academic and professional activities. The eLearning coach is a blog site that I considered for this assignment, but I have to narrow it down and I couldn’t get it below four sites. It made it to the final cut, though and I did add it my aggregator.

    Thank you for your contributions, I know that I have gain something from it.

    Brad
