eLearning Learning aggregates from many blogs in the industry. You can set your preferences for topics and to receive weekly/monthly emails with the top posts for those topics. It's a great way to see what many people are writing about without having to subscribe to dozens of blogs individually. http://elearninglearning.com/

The site appears to be down right now, but it's probably due to the AWS issues.

If you're not a member of the eLearning Guild yet, I also recommend that. You can join at the free level and get access to some of the resources or pay for more (I pay $99/year so I can read all the full research reports too).

I agree with Christy about joining the eLearning Guild. Even the free membership will lead you to lots of good content.

You should also research what groups meet in your area. For example, in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area of MN (where I live), we've got the Association for Talent Development (ATD) with SIGs for both training and eLearning; the Professional Association for Computer Training (PACT); and the Digital Learning Forum (DLF). So there's usually at least one interesting meeting to attend every month.

Thanks, Christy!  I've signed up for the newsletter and the Guild.  I also found a couple other newsletters that I'll try out.

Judy, I'm also in the Mpls/St. Paul area and used to belong to, at the time, ASTD, but let my membership lapse.  I should take a look at their site and consider joining again.  Thanks for the recommendation!

The local ATD's SIGs have wonderful meetings, and those are free.

I highly recommend PACT. They cover a lot more nowadays than the "computer training" in their original title. Here's their link: http://pactweb.org 

The DLF also puts on a great selection of meetings, and those are free. http://digitallearningforum.com 

Come over and say "hi" if you see me at any of the meetings. I'm easy to spot: just look for the white plume!

I enjoyed reading an ebook Top Experts Predict What Will Transform ELearning in 2017, where eLearning experts, teachers, educators, analysts, professors and founders of learning societies and blogs express their opinions on the innovations that will transform the way we teach and learn in 2017.

Here is a good collection 25 Blogs for Someone Who Wants To Become an ELearning Professional
