Editor's note

This week, E-learningZone, TrainingZONE's dedicated area for all
things online, has had a comprehensive re-jig. With a greater
emphasis on in-depth features, opinion and advice, E-
learningZone's strategy, technology and design pages have been
reorganised to make it easier to find the article you need. We've
also added three whole new sections; the Library, showcasing our
how-to guides on getting started with using technology and
learning, the Events page, packed with reviews from conferences
and exhibitions and a calendar showing all the key training
conferences with an e-learning interest and E-learning in Focus,
which highlights the latest state-of-the-market news, surveys and
industry updates on e-learning. Access it all now at
