    This is a wonderful Quick Start Guide for people who are looking for help in sorting out diffrences and similarities between so many eLearning tools. This review has the right selection of products and also all the critical information is highlighted in a well organized fashion. This link is defintely worth forwarding to educate the trainers, presenters and teachers who are willing to transform their content to more interactive content.

    Student fixation on content is understandable. They live a system where education means content delivery followed by a test. I am surprised however that you agree with them. Content ought to be, and is in any story centered curriculum, what is remembered long after the course is over. There is hardly as student who can pass an exam that they passed a year before (without studying for it again.) But experiences are remembered if they are interesting, emotional, and full of lessons learned about what to do next time or how to do something. If your course made students perform -- it had plenty of content.

    Dr. Schank, This is Jyoti Bawane, who also recently finished teaching her first online course in India to train students to be as teachers. This course was also based on scenario-based learning, which was developed under the guidance and training received from Dr.Som Naidu. The course was to enable teachers to work in networked environment and be a social change agent. We received a good response from our students, and the best part was a few were initiatlly planning to drop-out, however during the end of this course, these students reviewed their decision and gave the best presentations on the e-seminar. To be honest, my course had absolutely no content, it was all performance based, either go to the field and try out or demonstrate in a hypothetical situation. Infact, few students did complain that there was no content, i am sure these few have not realised that unconsiciously they have developed certain performance skills. i would not blame them for complaining since this is how the traditional education system functions.

    Dr. Naidu shared your work with us and iam glad to see this approach been widely accepted.

    regards jyoti
