Have you ever wanted to have a single list of the various free webinars brought together in a single place? In conjunction with eLearning Learning, we are working with Jon Udell (thanks Jon) to use his calendar aggregation technology to bring together a list of free webinars that we believe will be of interest to learning professionals.
Let me know if you think this will be valuable.
Integrated with Best of eLearning Learning
We are planning to include events that are coming up in the Best of eLearning Learning each week. We just did exactly that for the post:
where we listed three upcoming webinars. Hopefully another reason to subscribe to the best of eLearning Learning.
Get the Word Out
Hopefully this can grow to address both sides of this need – consumers and producers.
As a consumer, I seem to randomly run into webinars like you probably did when I just announced: Free Webinar - Models for Learning in a New World. Because they hit me somewhat randomly, I most often don't schedule it into my calendar at that time. I know that I'll make a decision later about the event.
As a producer, I know that getting the word out on a webinar can be very difficult. I will publish the information about the webinar I just mentioned on my blog, but that hits exactly the same audience. I will tweet about it. Hopefully a few people will Retweet. But it doesn't reach all that wide. I'm hoping that this will become a good way for producers to get the word out. By the way, if you are producing events that will be of interest to a learning professionals audience, then drop me an email.
Thoughts and Ideas
We are just beginning this process. We have some ideas on where this will go and how to make it better, but I would really like to get your input.
Is this a good idea?
What can we do to make this better?
