Just read a really interesting collection of blogs by Dave Evans. His job title piqued my interest straight away, "Cisco's Chief Futurist." In these blogs, he talks about the value of networks and their exponential increase in value as more people, process, data and things become connected. Thought I would end the week by linking to these blogs. Hopefully you will them interesting as well.   ... Read more

The final installment of the "Cisco Exam Preparation - Studying for Results" series went live this morning. This one (Part 6 of 6) might be my favorite of the bunch: "Overcoming Procratination and Myths".   In this webinar, Dr. Stephanie Burns, explains why procrastination happens in the first place and how it is a "natural" phenomenon. Next she shares best practices for how to overcome it ... Read more

Shelia Jordan over on the Cisco Blogs platform has a great piece on managing "Device Deluge". No matter where you're at in your IT Profession, devising an effective device management (tablets, smart phones and personal laptops) strategy will be, or already is, a critical piece to an overall IT management plan.   In the post, "Don't Let Device Deluge Get You Down", Shelia details Cisco's six ...

The Winding Road to Where You Are  Have you had a winding road professionally to the point you're at so far in your life? Of course you have, we all have right? That story is one that always fascinates me, and it's one that most of us can relate to no matter where you live or how old you are. Our November Community Spotlight Recipients stories are ones that I personally love; just ... Read more

Fellow community manager, Matt Saunders, and I have been working on a pilot project that will launch this week. On October 26th at 3:00 pm Pacific we are going to have a Study Group Hot Seat session. This is modeled after the Silicon Valley Cisco User Group's sessions that they do regularly.   One of the best ways to learn something is by teaching it, so we're giving community members the ...

As part of our ongoing attempts at making the Cisco Learning Network better and better, we launched a new "Welcome Page" today. On the right side of the page there is an introduction and orientation video. We really hope that this is useful to newcomers to the site.   With this little video in the can, we'd like to build more of these sorts of "how to use the Cisco Learning Network" videos ...

What's more important where you're from, where you're at, where you're going? I believe this is a very compelling question for most, if not all, the members of the Cisco Learning Network.   As children DelVonte and Erik wanted to either be archeologists, lawyers, or computer engineers, and growing up in Los Angeles and Baton Rouge, LA respectively you can't help but wonder if they ever ...

We've rolled out the first in a series of recordings with Dr. Stephanie Burns, PhD in adult learning, about how to maximize your efforts when you put time into your studies. It is entitled: Cisco Exam Preparation - Studying for Results.   Now that all the recordings are in the can and we've started sharing them here on the Cisco Learning Network, I've been reflecting on how I approach ...

Without question one of the best aspects to the Cisco Learning Network is the member contributed content. In fact featuring this content will be one of my primary goals for this blog.   This week Marcelo Augusto shared with the members of the CCIE Voice Group an entire list of "CCIE Voice Cheat Sheets" he built during his studies. If you are pursuing this certification track MAKE SURE you ... Read more

When I took the ICND1 class with Keith Barker a few months back, I really liked the Cisco Learning Labs. A really common question that I see on the discussion boards revolve around whether or not to buy physcial gear or not. I often chime in that for CCNA certifications, the Cisco Learning Labs are a good choice. You get access to all this virtual gear, some great exercises and more for a really ... Read more

I am amazed at all the great educational videos and classes that are available on the Internet these days.  It’s amazing how much education you can get for free, or relatively cheap.  Have you ever watched videos on TED, taken a course at Coursera, or checked out any of the free videos on the Cisco Learning Network?   There are so many resources out there sometimes it’s ...

Yesterday's webinar with Wendell Odom and Keith Barker went really well. I learned quite a bit about the new Cisco CCNA Premium Study Bundle. Considering the price of the exam... really an amazing deal.   I got to be on the panel... saying nothing but just fun to be a part of it.   Hats off to the team for putting it on and huge thanks to Keith, Wendell and Marcello for presenting. ...
