An Early Christmas Present

Michael Sampson - Currents

I received an early Christmas present yesterday because one of my clients wants the workshop based on the book this side of Christmas. I have been working on my new book, Doing Business with IBM Connections , since publishing the second edition of User Adoption Strategies. The new book takes a very pragmatic and grounded approach to how business people / end users can make use of IBM Connections in the day-to-day activities they do in their organizations.

Each presenter will have a 7 minute slot with images automatically moving on at the end of a fixed 45 second time.

Tales from a reticent Elluminate presenter

Jenny Connected

The main difference between ‘teaching/facilitating’ in an Elluminate session and in other environments is – for me – that the facilitator has to contend with the chat room, answering questions and managing the session/ presenting – all at the same time. I cannot even follow the chat and presentation at the same time when attending an Elluminate session, never mind when running the session.
