This blog was created as a class project for my Instructional Design and Technology degree from Walden University. Blogging is an educational tool that can be used to share information with my fellow classmates and vice versa. I hope you find this site both informative and useful.
Michael Hanley's blog includes posts about e-learning, web-based elearning, technology in education, e-learning tools, learning 2.0 (blogs and podcasts), and continuous professional development. Michael Hanley is a training and development consultant working with businesses and educational institutions. He lives in Dublin, Ireland. He has 11 years experience in learning and development and is a member of the Irish institute of Training and Development. I found his blog to be very informative about e-learning tools which are enhanced through the use of podcasts. He writes about learning theory and content development bridged by instructional design. He is currently researching how work-based learning initiatives enable workers to achieve organizational goals in a corporate environment, and approaches to measuring subsequent organizational and employee performance.
