How do you build eLearning?

B Online Learning

When it comes to building eLearning, how do you do it? Do you just open up Articulate Storyline , have a look at the content that your SME has provided and then just start building it? Do you import a bunch of PowerPoint slides, add a player skin with the obligatory Next and Previous buttons, attach some word documents as resources, and then hit publish? Do they need to be assessed to prove their understanding has changed? So how do we do that well?

In Defense of the Four Levels

Integrated Learnings

Like any model, Kirkpatrick’s four levels has limitations. Do you agree?

Pushing back

Clark Quinn

In a recent debate with my colleague on the Kirkpatrick model, our host/referee asked me whether I’d push back on a request for a course. Being cheeky, I said yes, but of course I know it’s harder than that. Of course, really you’re trying to determine whether there really is a need for a course at all, or maybe a job aid or checklist instead will do, and if so what’s critical to success. Focus on what people will do differently.
