I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments. Creating assessments is an important first step because you don't give the prescription on how to fix a business before you've figured out what the problem are-that's why you begin with the assessments- they become your base starting point of reference. This article has tools to help you create those online assessments.Let me know which are your favorite tools.

Time for next-generation interest-based content curation? RIP Google Reader | social media top stories | Scoop.it

Google just revealed plans to shut down eight of its services as part of what it’s calling an ongoing spring cleaning effort. Some of them are pretty arcane, but among TechCrunch writers, anyway, we’re pretty bummed to see that Google Reader will be shut down on July 1.

This OverBlog is very hard to navigate and there's no search, which is infuriating. Also, they say "no porn" which, as it is a "know it when I see it" thing, means anyone dealing with sexuality in any form likely isn't welcome. Instead, OverBlog says adult folks should go to their other site, http://www.erog.fr/ ~ however, that is also confusing and lacks search ~ and is also all in French.
Laura Brown's comment, March 19, 2013 6:44 PM
Sites which offer blogs like this are way out of date and out of touch with the current situation on the Internet. The "free blog" thing has come and gone. Pick Blogger.com or WordPress.com and be done with it. Anything else is too risky and not likely to stick around very long.
