I delivered this presentation at the 2009 Chicago eLearning & Technology Showcase.
The issues were identified through an informal survey posted to several social networks. Participants were asked to identify one way their organization got elearning wrong - that is, to identify one 'thing' that threatened the success of elearning deployment within their organization.
Many of the responses were rather tactical - the specific way a particular course was designed, the particular tool used, etc. All of the responses, however, pointed to one of five strategic issues. Those are explored here, and were supported by research/comments from a number of industry sources.
This presentation really calls for a slidecast, as the presentation was designed to be very conversational. As a result, the slides are somewhat thin on text. Until a slide cast can be created, please feel free to write me with questions.
Again, many of the ideas represented here are not original thought. I try to reference these sources on the slides as appropriate. Please let me know if I missed someone.
