Online Education for Management

On Tuesday I gave a talk in Sydney on "Online Education and Training Technologies" to the Australian Institute of Management (NSW and ACT). They were interested in the way the ACS is using eLearning for its Computer Professional Program and uses podcasting.

AIM provides management training for organisations and individuals. They have training rooms, a library and bookstore in North Sydney.
On-line technologies, such as course management systems (CMS), webcasting, and podcasting have great potential for e-learning. May of the products needed are available as free Open Source software. However, e-learning skills are needed to use these tools and create learning content for them. This presentation discusses some of the technologies and issues using the Australian Computer Society as an example.
