I'm new on to the group pages, so just thought I would open up some conversation. We are on a mission to save the world from boring e-learning and so I wondered what everyone thought of e-learning. Do you finding it boring? Do you find it tough to engage with? Is it designed from the learner's point of view?
In short - do you think we all need to be saved from boring e-learning?
Answers on a post card for a potentially controversial opening topic...
I expect that's a rhetorical question :)
Yes e-Learning sucks, but I'd also guess that your answer is more interactive, more snazzy looking e-Learning.
I'd suggest that most learning requirements are performance requirements, and that there is no scenario in which e-Learning is the answer unless it's a tick-box exercise for legal.
What do you think?
I guess it is a bit of rhetorical question :)
Thanks for replying though - good to get a response.
I think e-learning has a place, but that it's got to be for the right reasons - tick box exercise is never one of those. It's definitely right to think about the business need, after which e-learning could be the right solution. Sometimes e-learning is a great way to offer something bitesize, as a refresher or even as a way of learning on the go. So for me, it's not just tick-box, but much more besides.
