The Kinds of Breakthroughs that are Needed for eLearning to Demonstrate its Value

I have worked in the eLearning field for many years in both corporate and academic settings, and have seen it all: the good, the bad and the ugly.

Whenever I come across people or organizations that are struggling with realizing value from their eLearning, it usually comes down to the fact that they haven’t made one or all of the following breakthroughs:

– breakthrough from being reactive to being strategic in positioning eLearning as means of helping achieve key organizational goals

– breakthrough from static content dumps to models of active and engaging learning

– breakthrough from low level evaluations of satisfaction and learning to measure real impacts on performance and organizational results

– breakthrough from seeing training as an event to making it part of everyone’s day via embedded training support, learning communities, instant access to required knowledge, etc.

– breakthrough from seeing eLearning as a technology issue to focus first on performance improvement and organizational results, and then look at which technologies will help get you there
