Tune in for TrainingZONE’s top ten


As LearningWIRE celebrates its 100th issue this week, we thought it would be a good time to look back through our news stories to find out which articles TrainingZONE members have rated as most important. Our hits counter came into existence in September of last year, so our summary covers the hot topics of the last 6 months.

Predictably, on-line learning features highly in the list, with 3 entries. Our top story, Fast moving developments in on-line learning, was written in November last year at a time when several companies were launching on-line learning. Netg launched XTreme learning, intended primarily for use on company intranets and SmartForce, formerly CBT Systems, rolled out its e-learining package. Both sites reflect the huge investment which is being made in this technology.

There's not much to say about the fact that our beginners guide came in second in the list - except that it shows that TrainingZONE membership continues to grow and grow!

TrainingZONE members are also concerned with their wider role in the world of training - our stories about the launch of the Institute of Training and Occupational Learning and the IPD's annual training survey both rated highly.

For a comprehensive guide to the history of training methods and related psychological theories, Don Clark's time capsule is hard to beat, as many members will testify.

Finally, TrainingZONE always aims to bring the big stories in HR and training to our readers as soon as they happen, and a large number of TrainingZONE members logged on for our coverage of HRD 2000 and the launch of the new IIP standard.

It will be interesting to see whether the emphasis on on-line learning has shifted by LearningWire 200 - due out in April 2002. It seems likely that on-line learning will still be top of the list - after all, industry reports are suggesting that around 40% of all staff development will be delivered online by 2002. It could well be that that the buzz around on-line learning will have waned as it establishes itself as one more tool in the box for training delivery. Only time will tell!
