    9. 9. In 2004, Michael Allen, CEO of Allen Interactions, acknowledged surprise at the confusion, “I didn’t really think this would be much of a challenge—doesn’t everybody pretty much know what e-learning is? First up, then, is to define e-learning
    10. 10. They talk about and do e-learning Marc Rosenberg “ Web 2.0 is changing everything we do.” Stephen Downes “ The model of e-learning as being a type of content, produced by publishers, organized and structured into courses, and consumed by students, is turned on its head.”

    14. 14. <ul><li>Based on a review of the literature, including blogs and conference content, we constructed 26 snapshots </li></ul>Step 2: Nail down the definitional options ©2010 Allison Rossett  Sample Snapshots  Our programs are delivered in a virtual classroom. Employees join an instructor and classmates at a scheduled time.  Our programs are based on realistic scenarios which press employees to make choices and learn from the results of those choices.  Our programs provide guidance systems that help employees know what to do next and how much progress they have made.  Our programs are customized, personalized learning experiences matched to individual employee needs, strengths and preferences.
    15. 15. Step 3: We piloted and we edited ©2010 Allison Rossett  Sample Snapshots  Our programs are delivered on mobile devices.  Our programs include efforts to collect, distribute and update best practices and great ideas.  Our programs use visuals with an audio track. Employees access them at a time and place of their choosing.  Our programs include employee generated content, with employees asked to contribute their thoughts and opinions so that others, no matter their location, can benefit and respond.

    27. 27. <ul><li>Ratings for the e-learning snapshots revealed that current professional practice does not match the pictures and possibilities found in the literature, blogs and conferences. Not yet. When queried about hopes for the future, respondents valued more collaborative, learner-centered approaches, but not as their top priorities. </li></ul>Net. Net. ©2010 Allison Rossett
    28. 28. More additive than supplantive Are we over-cautious? Should we do more? Clayton Christenson “ We are spending the vast majority of our time incrementally improving what we are doing today in learning (courses/courseware) instead of taking advantage of learning disruption that is happening all around us.”
