Learning is a funny thing.

3 Simple Ways to Measure the Success of Your E-Learning

Janet is absolutely brilliant (she’s won multiple awards from ASTD and ISPI) and I’m surprised I haven’t heard of her before. What I learned from her is that we should provide support tools first and think about formal training second. Those strategies may not include training. Train less, support more. If network connectivity doesn’t get better and come up to the level in other countries (Europe, Japan, Korea for example) how will that impact your eLearning? Wow, that was the right way to start my day. Think about it.
