    As a  “mobile learning evangelist,” how many e-learning projects have you been “honored” to actually create? Nothing in any of your podcasts is of use to real developers. It is, however, useful in sharing buzzwords used to pull the wool over the eyes of 20-something clients, who need to be moved out of the way before serious work can happen.

      Hi Jay, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I really appreciate you taking the time. As for your question, I just started doing consulting and I’m happy to report that I have already landed a few projects and I’m currently working on my first mLearning project. Sorry to hear the feedback about my Podcast, but I’m very open to suggestions on how we can improve it, so please let me know. Thanks again.

        My advice is, don’t preach if you cannot practice.

          Excellent advice, Jay. This is something I always apply to everything I do and trust me, everything I write about and say in my Podcasts and in presentations I do, I’m putting into practice in every project I’m taking on. Thanks and have an excellent day!
