aLearning Among the Fearless

Posted by Ellen on November 30, 2010

Many thanks to Maddie Grant for including me in her list of “Fearless Female Bloggers”! As I mentioned in my comment, this just motivates me to keep raising a ruckus when I see something that needs to be addressed that — for all kinds of reasons — no one else in the association learning world seemed to want to poke a stick at.


And congrats to Maddie for making the “original” FFB list at Adria Richards’ blog!

Cyber Monday = 25% Off the aLearning Trail Guide!

Posted by Ellen on November 29, 2010

If you missed the free shipping offer for Black Friday, here’s a Cyber Monday deal for you:

All orders received before 11:59 p.m. PST today  (Monday, November 29) are 25% off (up to $185… don’t I wish someone would order that many books!!). Just click the Buy Now – Lulu blue button on the left to find out more about the book and begin the ordering process. When you are ready to check out, type CYBER25 in the Code field to receive your discount. It’s that easy!

Select the download version for immediate access, or choose the print version if you prefer flipping pages and highlighting key points 🙂

Either way, it’s what Lulu is calling their best deal of the year, and on top of the already reduced price of the book, it’s a bargain for the 270+ pages of step-by-step activities and checklists that will guide you from start to finish in developing a workable elearning plan for your association or non-profit.

What are you waiting for?!?

Please note that Lulu prints copies as orders are received. This means delivery on or by a particular date cannot be guaranteed.  See for more information about shipping and delivery schedules.
