I-love learning 2015 – Conclusions

In 2012, I was approached by not only a client but friend to put together a forum or space where professionals, like us, could discuss our concerns in the world of technology and training. He requested ‘Something different, not always talk about the same thing, no more commercial presentations’. I believe we fulfilled his wishes as he attends all appointments with Netex….. I hope he continues to do so…

In February, we gathered in Madrid with those ‘elearning champions’ at…

Taking in 430 years of history

Recently, quite out of the blue, I happened upon this plaque on an elegant building in Cambridge city centre.

CambridgeWall

As it suggests, Cambridge University Press is one of the best established and venerated book publishers in history. Netex is now creating some great elearning for them. Seeing the plaque on the wall really brought it home to me how big a step this is.

Cambridge University Press has been publishing books for over 430 years. It will, I am sure, …

Now that we have a Smartwatch, what can we do with it?

My first reflection when I saw the first mobile phone was: why would I want this if I already have a telephone at home?

I remember thinking that mobile phones would only be useful for boasting about, and that the only ones who would make the most of these devices were the brokers and drug pushers. For me, anyone else who owned one did so only to pretend that they belonged to one of these trades.

The feeling I have …

The Festive Period – a time for reflection… Part One

As thoughts turn to mince pies, mulled wine and turkey dinners, perhaps it’s also a good time to reflect on the changes we have seen in 2014 but for the purposes of this blog, we’ll restrict these to Learning Technology changes!! Maybe slightly more interesting, how these advancements compared to what we might have predicted at the start of the year. Like any industry, when January comes along, we look at trends and innovation for the year ahead. In fact …

Looking for new tools. Interview with Concha Roldán from Santillana.

We are with Concha Roldán, Global Manager for Digital Projects at Grupo Santillana and we would like to ask you about how Santillana is using Netex learningMaker tool. How did Santillana end up working with a tool such as Netex learningMaker?

New publishing challenges. Interview with Carlos San José and Francisco Prior from Anaya.

Francisco Prior and Carlos San José give us an interview in which we unravel the new challenges and opportunities that publishing houses are facing.

The School 2.0 project has been in progress for a number of years now in Spain. How do you see the current situation?

Francisco– At the moment, ICT is a reality in schools. The interactive whiteboard, for example, is present in almost 90% of schools. As for the rest of the ICT, it is well …

London Book Fair – a digital standstill?

We like to think Netex is unique (for various reasons!) but one of these is due to the services we offer to both corporate customers and educational publishers. It is this work with publishers, that allows me to visit London Book Fair , and I went along on April 8th for my third annual visit.

I like going to LBF, it’s different to the usual corporate focussed Learning Technology events we attend and provides me with some new perspectives. …

The evolution of training. Interview with Liliana Meneses from Banco Santander México

With the Serfín-Santander merger, we …

Why I-love learning?

I-Love learning aims to be the meeting point for training and new learning technologies lovers. Probably for you too, if you’re reading this.

It all began as a series of events organised by Netex, to which we invited a group of true e-learning enthusiasts. These events turned out to be successful and people showed a lot of interest in them, so this encouraged us to take another step forward: why not create a blog? A way to generate a more …
