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?

What is the learning outcome your client wants you to achieve, or the problem that needs to be solved?

Avilar

When an employee does something wrong in their job, a common reaction is to provide training as the solution. However, believing that training can solve all behavior and performance problems can set an organization on the wrong path. It may even result in a loss of support for your training program. So how do we know when training isn’t always the answer when an individual, team, or a whole organization is experiencing performance problems?

Closing the Learning-Acquisition Gap with Informal Learning

Re-thinking Learning and Performance from a Business Standpoint

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

Charles Jennings

I’d used the phrase ‘learning delivery’ when describing computer-supported collaborative learning ( CSCL ) approaches. What I’d meant by ‘learning delivery’ was ‘providing the resources and environments that help learning and, by inference, improved performance, to occur’.
