Joshua Kim, senior learning technologist and an adjunct in sociology at Dartmouth College, recently had a series of posts about working with software vendors. Although Joshua’s focus is with learning technologies (course management systems, lecture capture systems, etc.), these are general enough to be useful in a variety of library environments as well. His posts, hosted by Inside Higher Ed, were:
- “A Manifesto for Vendor Webinars” (January 31, 2010)
- “5 Questions Your Company Must Answer” (March 4, 2010)
- “Toward a Product Evaluation Framework” (March 7, 2010)
Here are descriptions or excerpts from each of the posts.
