Here are two definitions I found which endorse this view: "Rapid e-learning is courseware (live or self-paced) developed in less than three weeks, where SMEs act as the primary development resource." LTI Magazine "Rapid e-learning is web -based training programmes that can be created in a few weeks and which are authored largely by SMEs." I'm enjoying Tom Kuhlman's new Rapid e-Learning Blog.

Innovation Geography Based and Innovation in eLearning

Tony Karrer

Interestingly, I used to be involved in many more projects that indicated where next generation tools would be coming from (lots of us built authoring tools and LMS products from scratch before the right tools were available). Because I believe that innovation in classic eLearning (courseware based) is lessening and the opportunities are going to fall to providing open-source, free-hosted and other commodity type solutions.

Rapid e-learning is swimming in too small a pond

Clive on Learning

After all, LTI Magazine defined raid e-learning as "courseware (live or self-paced) developed in less than three weeks, where SMEs act as the primary development resource".

They both refer to the authors of this rapid content as being SMEs.

OpenOffice Impress - a rapid tool?

Learning Rocks

It is entirely possible to create blogs, wikis, elearning courseware and even LMSs for free. I've just noticed that OpenOffice Impress , the counterpart to the well used 'authoring tool' PowerPoint, has the option to output to Flash directly. The open source movement supports pretty much all we have to offer. To design your projects you can replace Adobe with a range of sophisticated desktop apps such as GIMP , Nvu/ Kompozer , Inkscape , Audacity and so on.
