Here in Washington, DC, a city filled with countless combinations of letters, the Acronym blog is an appropriately-named blog run by ASAE (an acronym no less), which stands for American Society of Association Executives. One of the aspects that I find most interesting about ASAE’s Acronym blog is its wide array of topic coverage for those within the association sector.
The blog focuses on issues relevant to association community, broaching a range of topics from learning and professional development to philanthropy. A post on e-learning within associations recently caught my attention. The blog, written by Joe Rominiecki, discusses a new report about associations’ usage of online education. The results were definitely positive. This recent Tagoras survey, titled Association Learning + Technology: The State of the Sector, showed that nearly 80 percent of participants found their association’s use of e-learning to be either somewhat or very successful. This is certainly fantastic news to us at Blackboard ProEd!
