Not All E-learning is the
Everybody wants to offer
e-learning solutions for their staff training and development needs. But not all
e-learning is the same. E-learning should go beyond reading a book on a computer
screen. Honestly, if I am going to read the words on page I would rather be
under a fluffy blanket, curled up on the couch with a pot of hot tea and some
butter cookies. E-learning should make full use of the technology of the
computer. I want the instructor to talk to me, preferably, on the screen. Add
some pictures, or better yet, add some live action video and animation. Provide
some interaction to keep me fully engaged and challenged. Provide a handout to
go along with the course so I can use that as a memory jogger after I have
completed the course. E-learning developers, challenge yourself to go beyond
republishing the text book on the computer screen. E-learning purchasers, demand
more from your providers.
An E-learning Black Box
Warning: Caution This Course May Be Hazardous to Your Sanity
I have taken many
e-learning courses over many years. Recently I purchased an e-learning course
that really needed to carry a black box warning: Caution this course may be . .
After purchasing the class I signed in and after some struggling I finally found
the first lesson. I clicked the link that said "start." Well it did, sort
of. A PowerPoint Slide popped up. Now like PowerPoint if done well. However,
this slide was full of text so small that I could not read it except by
switching to my large screen monitor. There were two paragraphs of text. Now I
must admit that I am getting a little older and perhaps the eye glasses need an
update. So I waited for something to happen. I waited and waited, until I
realized this was it. Read the text baby. So read I did, Clicked continued and
finally got to the quiz. While taking the quiz I wanted to review some content.
No, that was not allowed. I responded to the questions the best that I could. If
I missed the answer the only feedback I got was, Incorrect. After one lesson I
decided that there had to be a better way to learn. I found someone who offered
the course in a true e-learning environment.
Selecting e-learning that
is Pure, Safe and Effective
Selecting an e-learning
course is really rather simple.
