This week I am excited to announce that Bill Horton will soon be publishing a new edition of his best seller, E-Learning by Design. This news came to me after having received a phone call from the Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter for ASTD, in which I was asked to introduce Bill Horton at their Milwaukee ASTD Legend Series during the week of October 10th.
Following the phone call, I had coincidentally received an email from Bill Horton, himself, explaining that his new edition of E-Learning by Design is coming out and that the Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter of ASTD has invited him to be a legendary speaker at their event later this year. Bill Horton was seeking to bounce some ideas off of me regarding topics in his new book, so I was pleased to have the opportunity to interview him about what is coming in the new edition.
Bill and his wife, Kit, were early e-learning pundits and have taught many workshops over the years. They can be credited with teaching down to earth e-learning methodologies, as well as course creation. They have published several books on the topic, and have made great contributions to the e-learning community. Over the last two years, Bill and Kit have been on sabbatical and have traveled all over the country pursuing a photography interest that they share with the world through their websites (see below for links). Their talents are deserving of mention, and I hope you will take a moment to enjoy the fruits of their labor; they are quite stunning!
In 2006, I had the opportunity to review the first edition of E-Learning by Design and was, needless to say, duly impressed. I look forward to reading the latest edition, as I am sure it will be even more impressive. Here is a sneak preview of what’s to come…Interview with Bill Horton (12 mins)
