In basic physics, mechanical advantage describes the ability of a simple mechanism to produce an output force greater than the input force. E-learning delivers a learning advantage-by reducing the cost of learning by about a third-and either reducing time of learning by a third, or increasing the effectiveness of learning by a third. With e-learning, both the enterprise and the learner get more out than they put in. If they want their people to work at peak performance and to remain competitive, every enterprise and small to medium sized business need to face up to the challenge of implementing and delivering e-learning. E-learning is built from processes, products, services, and technologies-but it is none of those things. Instead, it is a strategic approach to learning in the corporation. Without a robust, business-driven strategy to guide implementation and delivery, e-learning is bound to fail. E-Learning Strategies is designed to help decision takers and implementation teams understand the elements of e-learning and the issues surrounding them. With chapters divided into What You Need to Know and What You Need to Do, E-Learning Strategies is a valuable resource for anyone responsible for e-learning strategy and execution. E-Learning Strategies covers the whole implementation process-strategy, vendor selection, technology implementation, culture change, content development, and delivery. It is designed to help both decision takers and implementation teams to understand the key issues, to devise the best strategy for their learning requirements, and to implement it successfully first time. Case studies provide practical insights into how BP, PWC Consulting, The Dow Chemical Company, and The Royal Bank of Scotland Group have met the challenges of e-learning-and how they have benefited.
"? e-learning has just moved from something that was an experiment-a very healthy experiment three or four years ago-to main line. I think we're at the very early stages of really understanding the power it has. It's no longer a question of whether it will be effective or how much it can increase productivity; it's just a question of degree." John Chambers CEO, Cisco Systems "For those who view the training function as a strategic service, this book deftly updates detailed consultative models for the realities of post dot-com e-learning . For those that do not view the training function as a strategic service, this book will change your mind. Both politically and technologically savvy, Morrison's breadth of understanding coupled with what can only be called humanity, makes this worthwhile and even exciting. My advice would be to read it with a colleague so you do not have to waste time recounting it before you get going." Clark Aldrich, Co-founder of SimuLearn "Don Morrison provides a clear insight into where the maturing e-learning world is headed and how to develop a strategy to get there successfully. True to the title, he delivers pragmatic advice, appropriate cautions, and asks and answers some of the tough questions often missed during implementation. Don shares my passion for the very real and pending promise of personalized learning for all adults, and articulates this clearly for all who read this book. Highly recommended reading." Wayne Hodgins, Strategic Futurist and Director of Worldwide Learning Strategies, Autodesk Inc.
