"Learning in 3D" a must-read for those in learning and collaboration technology

Two of the leading thinkers in learning and technology -- Dr. Tony O'Driscoll, Professor of the Practice at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business; and Dr. Karl Kapp, Professor of Instructional Technology at Bloomsburg University -- are publishing their new book in January. It's titled "Learning in 3D: Adding a New Dimension to Enterprise Learning and Collaboration."

It covers virtual immersive environments, and how they can redefine and improve the approach to learning and collaboration in the enterprise. I read the manuscript, and Tony and Karl asked me if I would write the forward. I was happy to do so. I think their book is a required reading for anyone in the learning and collaboration spaces. So we're doing what we can to help spread the word about it.

You can get a sneak-peek preview of their book and pre-order it on Amazon.com now. Tony and Karl will also be starting a blog book tour on Jan. 11. More details on that, as well as updates on the book to come.

Ron,

Just wanted to stop by and say what a great job you did on the forward to the book and how excited we are that ProtonMedia has created a virtual immersive environment in ProtoSphere to highlight the concepts in the book, it will be great for our readers to be able to experience what we are talking about in the virtual world.

Looking forward to reading the foreword and, indeed, the rest of the book. Some great titles in this area now: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/richpub/listmania/fullview/R3I5X1NXZ0F5S1 and the field is still fresh so each brings something new to the party.
