As the field of professional development is bolstered with the help of social technologies, features that cater to corporate learners, salespeople, ‘socializers;’ or for networking and collaboration in general, become more relevant than ever.
And there’s no denying that among the social networks catering to educators and elearning professionals, LinkedIn is currently leading the pack. With over 750 million members as of writing, more than 60m in the U.S. alone, the professional social network owned by Microsoft is the de facto social network for educators.
Not to miss: Every week, LMSPulse & Elearning Success Summit’s Stephen Ladek puts top industry leaders, experts, leaders and personalities on the Elearning Hotseat, on LinkedIn LIVE. Connect with Stephen to watch.
Below, you can see a list of the people driving the elearning conversation forward on LinkedIn. Did we miss anybody? Help us complete the list for a chance to get VIP All-Access passes for the Elearning Success Summit.

Reading is one of my happy places, but I also get to choose what I read, at least most of the time. I wonder if too often we give Ss a pass on reading bc we allow them to believe they are more visual learners when the reality is that they haven’t discovered the type of #reading that moves and interests them
