    [Providers] UK survey shows e-learning's the downturn winner
    Professional skills learning provider Cegos polled 254 senior L&D professionals during the last two weeks of November 2008. And increased use of technology really should be reflected in the training provided to L&D professionals, as many are woefully equipped to manage this change.They'll also need to overcome their fear of figures and learn how to talk the language of business, because this is the surest way they can maximise their chances of survival Face-to-face learning will remain the number one method used by organisations.

    Using the default parameters provides an easy way to generate a decent end result, but just about every aspect of the activity can be customised if you wish. These can then be deployed as a simple web offering or as a SCORM object, although in many cases you'll want to integrate the activity into a larger piece of work you are creating in another authoring tool - they provide instructions for Articulate Presenter , eXe and CourseGenie , although I'm sure it can be made to work in many other tools too - perhaps event the Rocket Course Builder :-). Not to forget matching up pairs.

    Two aspects of the 'Performance Zone' site that Futuremedia created for private health care provider BUPA particularly caught my attention: LMS widgets : The site provides each user with a personalised home page that can be customised with all sorts of widgets, including RSS feeds, etc. At the eLearning Network showcase event in July, I attended an interesting presentation on the use of learning communities made by Carole Bower of Futuremedia. These widgets draw heavily from the learning management system, but do not require the user to log into the LMS. Good for them!

    The author provides many examples of innovative group activities which would work equally well in a corporate setting and which counterbalance the inevitable steer towards formalised, tutor-centred instruction. Self-paced learning has great advantages, but live events provide an exciting counterpoint, encouraging social networking and punctuating a distance learning programme with milestones that help to keep everyone co-ordinated and on track This has been my experience too.

This past week I had the opportunity to travel to Las Vegas to see old friends in the L&D world and to make plenty of new friends as well. It was a great time and is always full of energy. Of course Las Vegas is a world unto it’s own as evidenced by the signage in the airport.

    They create corporate training programs that may provide all kinds of interesting information, but this information doesn’t line up with key business objectives that help individuals, teams, departments and divisions achieve specific goals that really have a measurable impact on the business as a whole. For L&D to prove real business value, it’s more important than ever to couple employee learning more tightly to business results. Sounds simple enough, right? Not so fast. Unfortunately, the reality is that many organizations we speak with have this process backwards.
