SHOW NOTES:

Topic 1 - Welcome back to the show. We’re obviously passionate about helping people learn with this podcast, but why don’t you tell us about your background and what makes you passionate about helping people learn at Learn on Demand Systems. 

Topic 2 - While we spent a lot of time covering the evolution of cloud technologies, the way that people learn today has evolved enormously as well. Help us understand the breadth of ways that Learn on Demand helps people learn - from Labs to Challenges to other forms? 

Topic 3 - One product that you recently started offering is called “IT Pro Challenges”. We’ve heard you say in other forums that you’re a big believer in hands-on learning. How does IT Pro Challenges help make sure that people get the actual skills they are learning?

Topic 4 - A big part of learning is motivation - finding the time to learn, finding the motivation to try something new. What are some of the things that Learn on Demand Systems does to help motivate people to engage in the various types of learning systems you offer?

Topic 5 - What is your message to people (individuals, managers, etc.) watching all these new technologies emerging and trying to figure out how to either pick the right learning/technology path for themselves, or generally putting a plan in place to improve themselves?
