Make e-Learning work: Outcome learning (3). The managers perspective

Challenge to Learn

I’m a manager myself for over 20 years now and I know from first-hand experience how difficult it is make decisions about learning and training. When you have to decide on whether or not to train a group of people this becomes even more difficult, most of the times you just don’t know. How do you decide on the validity of your investment and how to measure the outcome? You need to know what your employees need to be able to do and to know to make them competent.

Make e-Learning work: Outcome learning (4): the developers perspective

Challenge to Learn

You need to work based on the directions and within the requirements of the management and you need to deliver learning opportunities for people who most of the times know more about the matter than you. Pre-assessments based on these objectives will tell the learner his ‘learning gap’ and post assessments will tell him the result end the progress he has made. All you need to do is to inform and guide him the best way you can.

Designing Learning Like Professionals

Clark Quinn

What we do have are robust theories about learning that pretty comprehensively integrate the empirical data. There are gaps where have to use our best inferences based upon models to fill in. The point I’m trying to make is that we have to stop treating designing learning as something anyone can do. So please, please , start designing in coherence with what we know about how people learn.
