Clark Quinn

I also think we’ll see the further demise of “courses über alles” and the ‘all-singing all-dancing’ solution, and movement towards performance support and learning facilitation driven via federated capabilities. Taking the steps now have some immediate payoffs in terms of optimizing content development streams and looking anew at what are important interactions, but the big returns come in creating optimized learning and performance interactions.

CERT and performance support

Clark Quinn

They’re focused on communication and task support as really the two key things. In addition to the training, they’ve provided resources and very specific performance support tools. If you follow the directions, you’ll be led to create a team, check in, and head off on the first area needing to be searched. I hope I never have to, but I feel better knowing that if I do, there’s a lot of well-designed support.

While I believe she would be the first to tell you to design for mobile rather than convert existing courses as a best practice, it was certainly interesting to see the different takes – from full-on course development to conversion to performance support – that the different groups came up with.

e-Learning Programs' Support Services to Learners

However, how do we support our learners before, during, and after an e-Learning course, program, and (or) certificate? By focusing on the support services before the the e-Learning course begin you will attract and prepare the learners. By focusing on the support services during the e-Learning course you will enhance learning. By focusing on the support services after the e-Learning course you will have an online learning community of professionals with same interests.

If You Keep Practicing, You Will Get the Hang of It (or Thumbs Up for Rock and Roll!)
