One of the goals of the Big Question is to "Get different perspectives on topics that are of interest to workplace learning professionals." I feel the Big Question achieves that goal. General questions are fine, but I feel it has really excelled when the topics address very specific challenges or solicit practical advice. This provides not just perspectives, but valuable solutions. Here are just a few some examples that I have found beneficial.

ILT and Off-the-Shelf Vendors
So, while I always enjoy the Big Question, my feedback is to focus on very specific issues and challenges we face in e-learning and less general questions. With all the people participating, it is a great opportunity to tap into the collective knowledge and skills possessed; all focused on solutions for a common issue.
Here a few issues I would like to see addressed in future Big Questions.
- Working effectively with subject matter experts
- What is your approach to evaluating e-learning courses?
- Making a highly interactive course in spite of low bandwidth
- What should not be taught online?
My apologies if any of these or similar topics have already been addressed. I must have missed that month.
I always look forward to the Big Question. So, a big thank you to Learning Circuits.
