"No one asks or answers the tricky question "How can I implement LT successfully in my organization?" Now finally someone has. We have some practical, concrete and exceptionally clear answers here that should not be ignored. This book could save you time, money and a lot of embarrassment. Go read it." (Nigel Paine, international speaker and author of The Learning Challenge 2017-03-15)
"Anyone engaged in workplace learning will benefit from reading this book. Drawing on plenty of real-world examples, it spells out clearly what L&D professionals need to do when looking to extend their focus beyond the classroom and into integrating learning technologies." (Charles Jennings, Co-founder, 70:20:10 Institute 2017-03-15)
"This book illustrates a key fact of learning and performance tools - that making them work has very little to do with the technology and almost everything to do with the people involved. These tools are just that. Having a hammer doesn't make one a carpenter. This book speaks to the key factors we need to adopt to bridge this gap and get the most out of these valuable resources. Highly recommended!" (Bob Mosher, learning advocate, Masie Center 2017-03-15)
"There is enough rhetoric around leveraging SMAC (Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud) within enterprise learning. This can mean putting together a comprehensive learning architecture that could include enterprise social platforms, contemporary LMS, mobile learning apps, simulations, virtual reality tools, and so on. Donald H Taylor focuses on the leadership, maturity and mindset required to launch and embed these disruptive ideas within enterprise learning. He also highlights the skills required to champion new ways of working that must be built on a robust understanding of organizations' internal reality and context." (Sunder Ramachandran, general manager – training, GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals India 2017-03-15)
"The future of learning at work is blended and increasingly informal. No one is better placed than Donald H Taylor to understand both the opportunities and the practical approaches needed to overcome the numerous obstacles in our path." (Clive Shepherd, founding director, The More than Blended Learning Company 2017-03-15)
"Since 2003, Towards Maturity's benchmark research has shown how learning innovation can, and does, deliver business impact. It has also uncovered that many L&D professionals struggle to understand the tactics necessary for success. Donald H Taylor combines his pragmatic experience with research and case studies to explore good practices in learning technology implementations and has created a must-read for everyone involved in the process." (Laura Overton, CEO and founder, Towards Maturity 2017-03-15)
"So much of modern workplace learning relies on technologies and yet nobody has written a definitive guide to their implementation - until now. It's readable, insightful and useful and I recommend it." (Jane Hart, founder, Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies 2017-03-15)

I've found Learning Technology in the Workplace has given me a lot of useful guidance in my L&D job. It's also been helpful for my CIPD level 5 course in L&D.
I'd definitely recommend this book to anybody working with technology in an educational, HR or L&D context or studying any programme about adult education.

I would suggest anyone embarking on a learning technology project should read this book before they start and save some of the pain you might otherwise experience!
And for those of us that have already implemented, there is much to learn here about where we might have gone wrong.
The author, Donald Taylor, is probably the only person who could have written this - one of the most knowledgeable people in this space and with a network of people to draw on that is second to none.
