As I mentioned earlier in the week, I recently had a blast recording a podcast with Brent Schlenker of the Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development blog on the 31 Days to Building a Better Blog Challenge.
During the interview, I shared with Brent the whole process we went through for the Challenge and what we learned in the 31 Days. Then Brent taught me a new word--"blearning"--a contraction of "blended learning" that I have to say I'm kind of digging. We also talked about the larger issues of how the 31 Day challenge process provided a structure for professional development and training that is really powerful, especially when you use people's personal passions and connect them to a larger community of practice.
So if you want to hear about blearning and the 31 Day Challenge, check out Brent's podcast here. And while you're at it, you can check out the rest of his podcasts here--some good stuff on e-learning. Or perhaps it's blearning now. I'm not sure anymore. Ask Brent.
