Welcome to eLearning Weekly Magazine, the next phase in the life of the popular blog eLearning Weekly. eLearning Weekly has been sharing practical “tips and tricks and lessons learned” since founded by B.J. Schone in 2007. Hundreds of posts later and hundreds of thousands of readers later, we are letting the blog grow up to the magazine it has become with new writers and editors and a creative team of elearning professionals specializing in graphics and video.
The move to a magazine format has been a gradual progression ever since Schone brought on Eric Matas as the Managing Editor of eLearning Weekly in 2010.The technical aspects of the transition, from WordPress.com to WordPress.org, would follow some content changes like the interviews and LMS spotlight pieces that Matas added.
more of the same practical elearning advice written by people who actually design and develop elearning in their jobs
Ultimately, Matas assured Schone the new magazine would publish “more of the same practical elearning advice written by people who actually design and develop elearning in their jobs.” The same hands-on topics that attracted Matas as a reader, and eventually as a guest author, would be at the core of eLW Mag, and the additional writers and editors will allow the magazine to offer book reviews and product reviews while focusing on the new tools vital to elearning: video cameras, mlearning authoring tools, and cloud resources.
We are very excited to present the new look and the new features. You should find our basement especially fun and innovative. We were able to dig into the code and remove the footer on our WordPress magazine theme. Instead, we added the eLW Basement, where readers can find some free downloads, templates and ebooks, and other underground elearning cheese and crackers. Enjoy!
