Choosing Media - Push vs. Pull - Part 1 of Many

Tony Karrer

I'm slowly beginning to prepare for some future presentations and slowly writing a couple of articles that discuss the impact of relatively newer developments in eLearning such as: Rapid eLearning , the Shift in eLearning from Pure Courseware towards Reference Hybrids , eLearning 2.0 , Podcasts, Wikis, Content Management, etc. This question is a great way to generate an argument at any dinner table involving learning professionals.

Myths about online learning

Janet Clarey

I think many of these myths can be applied to corporate e-learning. I'm thinking here about a vodcast with group communication around its content. Myth : Online courses are OK for learning Microsoft Word, but you cannot possibly teach real science (which translates into higher thinking/very technical content in the corporate world). They were highly interactive with branching, audio, video, etc. A different learning intervention might require less production.
