  • Excellent presentation...nice info in 'learning pill' sized bites, well laid out. Glad to have tweeted to QuickLessons' growing twitter streams of eLearning professoins, and on a personal note, to learn by your example, Jane. On slide 6 I'm assuming JIC means just in case? I know from my biz school days that JIT means just in time. Thanks for creating/sharing this work.

  • 1. How to make e-learning work! Tips & Tools CIPD Conference Presentation 23 April 2009 Jane Hart Social Media & Learning Consultant Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies
  • 2. Is E-Learning broken?
  • 3.
    • Online courses
      • take too much time and money to create; and
      • employees (often) don’t like or fully use them
    • Blended solutions
      • provide limited interaction (communication and collaboration) between learners
    • Systems and tools
      • are costly; and
      • are not paying off or living up to expectations
    Some of the problems …
  • 4. 5 Tips
  • 5. 1 Re-think your definition of “e-learning” REMEMBER the 80%-20% rule Focus more on the informal Place efforts on formal only where essential (compliance, regulatory training) “ Information, instruction, education, training, communication, collaboration and knowledge sharing” Tom Kelly, Cisco Systems, 2000
  • 6. 2 Think about productivity / performance improvement / support as well as training Think JIT not JIC Think on-the-job Think on-demand, workflow-embedded solutions REMEMBER Learning is a means to an end; not the end itself It’s about improving the productivity and performance of individuals, teams and the business Measure success in these terms NOT course completions or test results
  • 7. 3 Think PEOPLE not just CONTENT Help people to help themselves i.e. self-organise (= support a bottom up culture) Encourage people to: Communicate Collaborate Connect (Co-)Create Share
  • 8. 4 When considering tools, think FOSS and Hosted FOSS = Free and/or Open Source Hosted = ASP, SaaS Cloud computing
  • 9. 5 Think quick, easy, short and disposable solutions BUT don’t re-invent the wheel! Solutions need to be relevant to their needs and fit with their way of working Working and learning need to merge
