    [Providers] Why eLearning Development Ratios Can be Hazardous to Your Career
    Based on survey responses from nearly 4,000 learning professionals at 249 companies, the survey provides the average time required to produce one hour of training of various types: Learning Type Development Ratio Instructor-Led Training (ILT) 43:1 Level 1 eLearning (Basic) 79:1 Level 2 eLearning (Interactive) 184:1 Level 3 eLearning (Advanced) 490:1 These numbers can be very helpful when used to estimate staffing levels for a training department, or gauging resource requirements across multiple projects. More often than not, however, these guidelines can be dangerously misleading.

    If they don’t get it now, what benefit will getting it provide versus the cost of creating the functionality? I had the displeasure of spending much of the evening reading one of the worst requirements documents I have had to wade through in some time. It wasn’t that it was poorly written (it was) or poorly organized (check). Its greatest crime was that those who had written it had clearly failed to utilize the two key words that have to be part of any requirements effort: “why?” ” and “no.” ” “Gathering?” suspect so.

    So when we design an HR organization we typically create shared services groups (and use outside providers) to manage these tasks. But once you have these programs running well (and this is no easy task), the remaining 1/3 of the HR budget must optimize its efforts on the strategic value HR and L&D provides: supporting what we now call "talent management" - sourcing, hiring, staffing, training, managing, developing, and supporting the team. talent markets are rapidly changing. Is it time for a new operating model for HR? We think the answer may be yes.

    [Providers] Using Video for Knowledge Transfer
    Today, there are a number of companies competing to provide online coursework for the K-12, college, and graduate school markets. Several years ago, Sal Khan disrupted the education world when he developed educational videos for his cousin to quickly tutor her in some classes. The lessons were instrumental to his cousin’s education and he eventually drew some press for his work, which led to the formation of Khan Academy , which offers online courses. However, few companies have risen to the challenge and offered mass video instruction. But check out Khan’s videos. Not often.

First we collect the data, then we connect the fragmented pieces to gain insights into ourselves and into society. Once ideas, personal preferences and interests, and even thoughts have been externalized and made explicit in online profiles, blogs, Twitter, and Facebook, the data simply waits to be mined and analyzed. What do we do with data like this? guess that’s a more difficult question. Is it more accurate?

    How might online tools and social media help us to devote time and resources and provide positive consequences for people, so they can find out for themselves how things work best within their organisation? Before we create yet more training, how can we give people space and time to develop their own capabilities? It may be easier to say what NOT to do. There is a risk that the old superstitions of trainers resurface online and so stop webinars, virtual meetings, remote action learning sets and so on from being effective.

    While this is certainly heavy handed it provides a great substitute for a live training environment, allowing trainees to take the course at their convenience. In a live training environment, generally a real life trainer works with one or more trainees to educate them on the training material. One benefit of this is that the trainer has a good sense of a trainee’s level of engagement. For instance, if a trainee were to fall asleep or be playing with their phone and not paying attention it would be quite obvious in a live training session. Note on Privacy and Security. Developer
