What People are saying about this
Marx and Hudson-Samuels provide valuable frameworks that increase order and reduce chaos. Their straightforward summary tables and graphs, in combination with their lucid and accurate explanations, will surely reduce the number of Valium prescriptions among those of us charged with shifting from traditional classroom to electronic training and performance support alternatives. I personally plan (with permission, of course!) to use their frameworks in working with my clients.
Today's training professional must also be able to plan sophisticated learning architectures that integrate several media options to serve an increasingly diverse and mobile learning audience. Ray Marx has put together an exceedingly valuable resource. While it is exceptionally thorough, it also provides elegant aids and guides that practitioners can refer to time and again to help them consider and understand the many choices that our exploding technology makes available. Of special value are the explanations and analyses that will help practitioners craft integrated learning interventions that incorporate more than one option and medium.
