Most of us devote significant effort to collecting feedback and assessment of our training. We seek to improve our delivery, our materials and the end user experience while measuring the business impact to support future training resources. For now, let's think about the latter.
As a former lecturer, I say this with a degree of sheepishness but I hate being lectured to! I want my learning to be individual and fill me with curiosity. It should allow me to explore, collaborate, discuss.
I'm often asked about authoring tools - either for recommendations or I am asked whether we can build courses using them (the answer is yes - we use all of them by the way).

Our government's economic research stresses that while innovation is vital throughout the OECD now more than ever, Australia's circumstances make innovation our number one priority.
