Editor's note
In the world of e-learning, it's easy to find people willing to
offer an expert opinion, but our guest interviewee this month
could arguably claim to be the best known in his field. US-
based Elliott Masie heads up the Masie Center, a think tank
created to examine how people interact with learning
technologies and how companies make differing use of technology
in different cultures.

In an exclusive interview for TrainingZONE, Elliott gives us his
view on the state of e-learning today. If you read just one
article this week, make it this one!
