We discuss. Register. Over the years the systematic ADDIE process has proven successful in design and development of learning. However, can maybe ADDIE is too “organised” in today’s world of swift change. The landscape today is characterized by frequently changing business requirements, incorporation of Web 2.0 elements, short shelf-life of content and the need for clients to see what they are getting (or at least a sample) in the early stages of the process. Is ADDIE failing to effectively meet the new demands for learning. Do you agree? Do ‘rapid / agile’ approaches work?

Role of a Learning Consultant: Insightful discussion imported from LinkedIn

ID Reflections

I am copying a discussion we have been having on LinkedIn as a part of the Training&Development group. started this discussion to understand the roles (tacit and explicit) that a learning consultant plays. The discussion that evolved has been one of the most insightful for me and I thought it should be shared with those who may not at present be a part of the T&D group on LinkedIn. Moreover, I would urge all learning folks to join this group—just to keep learning and evolving…and to contribute to these discussions so that we can all learn together.

Common Myths about e-Learning

Origin Learning

Learning lacks discussion and interaction scenarios. Every e-learning session is designed with an option for the students to discuss with the instructor or with other students, pose their questions and get their doubts clarified.
