eLW moved to eLWmag.comWe’ve got DevLearn on our minds right now (Vegas Baby!). Still, we’ve been busy doing a make-over. eLearning Weekly has moved and become eLearning Weekly Magazine.

B.J. and Eric will continue writing the same sort of posts that followed the original tagline: “Tips, Tricks and Lessons Learned”. We love to share the nitty-gritty elearning work flows and work-arounds. And we love the sense of community here at eLearning Weekly. The readers have chimed in and added comments that make the posts better for the next readers.

How to Stand Out to Get eLearning Jobs January 26, 2011

Photo of Business Lady with LaptopOne of eLearningWeekly.com’s most popular posts is eLearning Jobs. It is even far more popular than the follow-up that B.J. posted called More eLearning Job Resources. Both posts offer links to sites that show elearning job listings galore.

But what do you do once you’ve found a job you want?

We’re here to help with that. In addition to continuing to find the best sites for job searches in our field, we thought we’d forge ahead and write more articles about landing those jobs, preparing for the interviews, and developing a portfolio.

In the meantime, I want to use this editor’s note to solicit contributors. (It’s related!)

I learned from conducting interviews and from sitting in meetings trying to reduce the candidate pools that it’s the little extras that make people stand out. In particular, the people who stand out most are those who have participated in professional groups, done research, or written articles about industry topics.

Contributors can be writers who post once, post more than once, or post regularly. Perhaps you’d like to start a recurring column? Don’t worry about ideas…we’ve got more than we can write about! Let us know your interest by emailing editor@ericmatas.com.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Best,

Getting Ready for the All New eLearning Weekly September 3, 2010

Hello eLearning Weekly fans and readers!

This post is my first editorial comment since coming on board as the Managing Editor at eLearning Weekly. I am pumped up with adrenaline and elearning energy because next week is the official relaunch.

elearning weekly re-launches after labor day

Next week, after Labor Day, eLearning Weekly will kick off a series of regular new content with a spotlight piece that focuses on a cutting-edge LMS solution. The LMS space is changing drastically and we will write regularly about the options and trends for learning management–after all, where the elearning goes is pretty important.

eLearning Weekly will not be as entirely “all new” as this post’s title boasts. The blog will get a bit of a make-over so the look of the site will complement the new content, but long-time  readers will see the same committment to quality content that strives to explore techniques and tools and shares tips and tricks. Both B.J. and I are innovators and early adopters, but we are also well-grounded, careful thinkers. So, while we will jump into hip, fresh elearning news like using social media, we will also be a calm space in the middle of the elearning storm, writing about practical ideas and consistent practices.

On a final note, I want to invite you to be involved. We are a sort of hybrid now: part blog and part online magazine, and we want contributors. Contributors can be writers who post once, post more than once, or post regularly. Let us know your interest by emailing editor@ericmatas.com. In the meantime, you can contribute by commenting on the posts. 😉
