Reuben Tozman shows you how the evolution of the web is shaping the future of learning.
I hope this book awakens a desire to connect with your instructional design roots. I hope this book gives you enough to think about so that you can join in on the conversation about what systems we should be working toward and how we can best support the people in our organizations to do their jobs and learn in the most effective and efficient way possible.
More so than anything, if this book encourages you to explore the outer edges of the technology world and what’s possible, and you are able to bring some of that back to make you a better designer, then I will have done my job.
