Endorsements

"WOW! Seven strategies that make sense-and work! Online Learning Today offers a solid no-nonsense approach that takes the mumbo jumbo out of e-learning."

-Boyd Clarke, CEO, tompeters!company

"While most books covering e-learning immediately jump to implementation, Online Learning Today appropriately pauses to consider the 'why' and the 'when.' Training directors who are considering e-learning would do well to review the sage advice of Shea-Schultz and Fogarty before making any rash decisions."

-Tony O'Driscoll, IBM Executive in Residence, North Carolina State University and author of Achieving Desired Business Performance
