I have tried for the last 10 years to write non-promotional posts for my Managing eLearning blog.  This one is going to be a little hard since I am very proud of Dr. Hicken and his work on the eLearning Hype Curve.   My goal will be to discuss some of my favorite podcasts from Leading Learning and end with a mention of the Web Coursework’s Dr. Andy Hicken’s interview conducted by Jeff Cobb. 

Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele have been leading US pundits on online learning.

You can subscribe to the leading learning podcast, here.

Most of us int eh business of online learning know that Jeff Cobb has contributed heavily towards the advancement of online learning since his days he built learning management systems for Learn Something.   He has been an innovator and ahead of his time (The Elon Musk of eLearning) and now along with his spouse, Celisa Steele adds weekly to our body of knowledge to help us understand concepts relating to launching a learning business in 2020. 

Here are two relevant podcasts for those organizations holding virtual meetings and conferences:

  1. Virtual Conference Now
  2. Venturing Into Virtual Events with NHPCO

I recommend you download Leading Learnings study on Virtual Events.

It is always best to continue to envision the future despite what is happening today.  To that end I strongly recommend the following podcasts:


Andy shares that the eLearning Hype Curve predictions started from the annual eLearning predictions blog post they did for many years. But about four to five years ago they came up with the idea of connecting it to the hype cycle, which is a concept that comes from the consultancy, Gartner.
