Leave A Comment

Blogs are all about conversation. I just saw a post that explained to readers how to leave a comment, and I thought that might be a good idea to have that post as well and it would be a nice addition to the content in my First Time Visitor's Guide. Please, if you have thoughts or questions on one of my posts leave a comment.
  • It shows me that you care.
  • That it inspired a thought or a question.

I learn a tremendous amount from the comments on my blog. So, please, please, leave a comment.

Have I begged enough?

Comment Policy

I welcome comments on this blog — suggestions, affirmations, critiques, questions.

I ask that your comments:

  • are constructive and not personal or hurtful
  • are related to the content of the post
  • include personal connections to what the post is about. A comment which does not add to the conversation, runs of on an inappropriate tangent, or kills the conversation may be edited, moved, or deleted.

I try to respond to comments fairly quickly. In some cases, I wait a little while so that other people can weigh in.

How to Leave a Comment

To leave a comment, just click on the "Post a Comment" link near the bottom of each post.

post-a-comment-link

It will take you to a page that looks something like:

You can provide various bits of information so we know who you are. I'd recommend not doing Anonymous comments unless that's really important. It's pretty easy to just give a name/URL combination.

This is pretty simple, so please leave a comment.

Hi,

I've been following your blog for quite a while. It is brilliant.

I shall write more comments in your future posts. Also, it would be great if you could write about eLearning trends and eLearning Visual Design.

Cheers,
Rupen

Tony Karrer said...

@Latifa - thanks for the comment. Like your avatar!

@Rupen - thanks for leaving your first comment. I write quite a bit on eLearning Trends - I'd almost say that's most of what I write. Anything in particular?

eLearning Visual Design is a good topic. Thanks for the prompt.

Hi Tony,

We’d be interested in applying for LearnTrends Innovation Awards. I see on the form that the instructions say “nominations for innovative startups in the learning and technology field…” Although my company is not a startup (we’ve been around for 9 years), our current version of our authoring software is new and innovative. Would it be worth applying?

Kind regards,

Rob Penn
President, Suddenly Smart

Tony Karrer said...

Rob - definitely worth applying. We are looking to showcase things that are innovative.

Robert said...

Will do. Thanks Tony.

eLearning is a definitely a high growth industry. Blackboard is a huge player but if one can find a niche there would be a great future.

Tony- I am just getting my toes wet in the proverbial blog waters. I am currently writing my thesis on marekting eLearning programs and exploring blogs like yours is part of my research process. When I am finished I will have earned my Master of Distance Education with a teaching and training specification. This blog looks like a great site for valuable information and one of the few I have seem that is engaging readers so actively. I have examined a lot of blogs that are still one-way channels of communication- doesn't do much for sharing does it? I will definately be passing your URL onto my other MDE associates. I do not have a blog currently, I have a ePortfolio that is being developed for my capstone course. Here's the URL if your interested :http://brendacledford.weebly.com/
I am looking forward to reading current and past archives in the near future and participating. Thanks for such an opportunity. Brenda C. Ledford

Hi Brenda,

Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment. There are quite a few posts here about market opportunities and the business of learning. Love to hear your thoughts about what you are seeing. Maybe a blog post by you?

Dear Dr. Karrer:

I was very interested in your post about knowledge workers. I am an accomplished science media strategist, but am looking at a hole in my experience: social media as public relations strategy. It seems like most job descriptions now are looking for it.

I can make the case the blogs and social media communities are content hungry, and I am the quintessential content provider. But I need to show that I am moving into this world. I am am experimenting with Linked In, but find it hard to take the next step and start discussions (I took a workshop on it, have a CD from jibberjobber.com, and am looking for a boot camp of some sort). I would like to learn, but there is a flood of information and I do not know where to start. Ideally, I would get enough information to form a social media learning plan and then learn it by living it. I know my question is broad, but where does a neophyte start? I know you get a million of these.

Thanks,

Greg Williams

Leaving a comment seems simple, but some people need to read how to leave appropriate comments. It's nice you have blog talking about leaving comments.

Jessica said...

I totally agree with the last post. Some people should have more respect for the blogging community. Learn how to leave a proper comment discussing the subject at hand.

Hi Tony

I just shared your post with some friends of mine who are not familiar with e-learning plattforms/tools. Most of them didn't even know they could start a conversation in a site like this. Your post was very helpful, thank you :)
