I enjoyed your contribution at the symposium yesterday very much. Not only was your key-note a good example of how to structure a key-note, but also the content was very nice. Not all new, but it was very nice to see new insights connected to known content. ~ Patrick Collaris

Jane, this was a truly great tour of personal organisation, collaboration and social media tools. I think you pitched it just right – anyone would find information of real value here without being overwhelmed. Thanks for all your hard work. ~ Dan Mason
Social Learning Handbook’ best professional book I’ve read the last years regarding L&D! ~ Karl-Heinz Thulemann
I appreciate how your book is so much more than just a tutorial on Social Media. After reading it, I really feel like you did a wonderful job of addressing the future possibilities concerning organizational learning. As educators, staying up to date on new media is important, but equally as important is knowing what kind of role it could play in education. Thank you for addressing this, and for not just writing another infomercial/tutorial about SocMe tools and resources. ~ William Lamp
