Hello all,

I am glad to announce that I have launched a new Web site on e-learning. Here is my new Web site name:

http://elearningplanet.com/

Here are the unique features of my new Web site:

Millions of e-learning Web sites are available in the Cyberspace. There are Web sites that include only e-learning blogs; some include e-learning forums, information on e-learning jobs, reviews on e-learning products, and so on. But, very few Web sites post information that covers all aspects of e-learning.

 

elearningplanet.com deserves to be one among those rare Web sites that:

  • Includes its own e-learning blog.
  • Facilitates collaborative learning between e-learning professionals through its forum.
  • Conducts frequent online contests for e-learning professionals.
  • Provides free online training and assignments for instructional designers and graphic designers.
  • Selects its favorite blog post and blogger from the e-learning blogosphere on a weekly basis.
  • Selects active participants in the planet’s forum.

All blog posts in this blog (https://elearningtyro.wordpress.com/) are moved to the ‘Blog’ section in http://elearningplanet.com/. However, this blog  continue to remain with no future updates.

Please redirect your feeds to http://elearningplanet.com/?feed=rss2

Thanks for all your support and I am anxious to contribute more to this e-learning world through my new Web site.

Regards,

Sathish Narayanan
