    [Providers] Use of a LMS Enables Formal Training and Informal Learning
    Being able to share and store user generated interactions in an LMS can provide informal learning benefits by acting as an online repository of employee knowledge. Providing training material, or using an LMS that has quality tutorials and support services, can appease both types of learners. Social learning tools are becoming more popular and readily available to provide an engaging online learning environment combining the best elements of both formal and informal learning procedures.

    [Providers] What is quality when it comes to e-Learning?
    As instructional designers, our primary responsibility is to bring about behavioural change, thereby, hopefully, also providing sufficient return on investment for our clients. As conscientious professionals, it is our responsibility to ensure that we provide a learning experience that the learner can enjoy. Some instructional designers are quite happy to let a course go the way it is provided the client is happy. Does a good-looking course qualify as good quality? What about an ordinary course that brings about great behavioural change? Where does that leave quality?

    HTML in its current form is really incapable of providing the sophisticated artistic and media abilities that Flash provided. Scaling of experience in my eyes is simply being able to leverage the hardware and software feature-set that the platform provide i.e., the courseware/content should be able to use the feature-set to enhance the experience, not just provide a baseline function. This proliferation of devices is having a strange ‘dumbing-down’ effect on a lot of the eLearning courseware being created right now. Why do I think this way? Choose wisely.
