Presented by Belen Bilgic Schneider of Performance Development Group. 

At our December eSIG meeting, Belen presented an online presentation to our members.  Whether you are flying solo or a dynamic duo of Instructional and Graphic Designers, one thing is certain: creating a course filled with content-enhancing graphics is a challenge.  Process models and complex info-graphics lend themselves easily to a high-caliber partnership between content and visuals. Belen talked about what you can do to make your content graphics do more heavy lifting for less obvious content.  Link to Belen’s presentation: GraphicsBootCampDec2011 (pdf)

Our October eSIG meeting hosted a Panel of Sharepoint users which included Robin Eisenberg from Pearson VUE, Maureen Longstreth from Dow Chemical, and Karl Grieb from Vanguard.

SharePoint, one of the most commonly purchased enterprise applications leveraged in today’s workplace, helps you and your team work better, faster, and smarter. You can access the right people and information at the right time to make better decisions, connect with your colleagues in new and creative ways, quickly become more productive and make better business decisions. But how can you use it to make an impact in learning and development. 

This interactive session discussed how companies are using SharePoint to leverage their learning and training needs.   This website features the top 10 Sharepoint websites in 2010: http://www.topsharepoint.com/top-rated-sharepoint-sites-for-2010
