Two good resources: not-e and e.
I came across two resources I wanted to share with readers--both provide a lot of helpful information.

Not for e-learning. For those of you doing classroom training or presentations with PowerPoint, this blog entry offers a long list of PowerPoint add-ons as well as free and for-fee tips and training. For example, EmailPresenter lets you email a PowerPoint presentation to someone within an email message (not as an attachment), and Exelsius creates animated Flash movies from Excel data. There are also several resources that talk about how to create better presentations, for example "Really Bad PowerPoint," a whitepaper about what not to do.

For e-learning. The Masie Center,  an e-learning think-tank in Saratoga Springs, New York, has collected 701 e-learning tips from people around the world who submitted them. They've compiled the tips into a free digital e-book with 14 chapters,  including ads. You can download the book (allow some time; it's a big file) or request a copy on CD-ROM, and you can share and distribute the book as long as you don't alter the content or charge for it. These tips are from fellow practitioners in the trenches, so you should be able to find some good information. There's also a list of Elliot Masie's personal tips.
