The eLearning Guild asked members for their favorite tips for using software for the creation of e-Learning. Members could submit tips in any or all of the following five categories:
Courseware authoring and e-Learning development tools
Rapid e-Learning tools
Combining and deploying authoring tools
A total of 122 members responded to the survey, contributing 162 usable tips. As with our previous Tips eBook efforts, the tips range in length from one-sentence ideas all the way up to page-long discourses. Some are very basic in nature, and others are quite advanced. We have not edited the tips in any way, other than to correct spelling – everything you see in this book is in the tipsters' own words. As a result, these tips will be useful to any designer or developer looking for best practices to incorporate into their own production process.

Abstract: Social networking tools and Web 2.0 technologies provide opportunities for library and information science (LIS) professionals to connect and learn from one another by developing a Personal Learning Network (PLN). As a new information professional, immersing into the online LIS community can appear daunting at first. The purpose of this paper is to reflect upon and share my learning experiences from the beginning stages of developing my own PLN. A methodical approach was taken, which includes a literature review of supporting concepts; using statistical analysis of PLN growth and participation; seeking insights, ideas and opinions via Twitter, and documenting my learning and development with reflective writing practices.
