Join Dr. Allen Partridge, Adobe eLearning Evangelist for a discussion and demonstration centered on knowledge sharing in your organization.

    Andrew Maynard, Director of the Risk Science Center at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health raised this provocative issue in his recent article for the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies “Online Learning is where Online Music was five years ago.
