205 The Rush to eLearning: How Not to Screw it Up
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM Wednesday, October 24
Management and Strategy
First it was a curiosity. The curiosity grew into a fad, and then into a genuine trend. Now it’s a necessity. eLearning long ago left the experimental or pilot stage and is now a mainstream method of training and education. Everyone is doing it. But are they doing it well?
In this session, you will explore the pitfalls and key indicators of success or failure that will help you think differently about how your organization approaches eLearning. The rush to eLearning is littered with the bones of mistakes and judgment errors, and of eLearning projects built on high hopes but not much else. Combine this with a field that is rapidly changing, and it’s clear that getting it all right can be very challenging. Join this session and learn what to do (and what not to do) when you’re getting started—and, perhaps more importantly, how not to screw it all up after you and your organization get going.
In this session, you will learn:
- The most common mistakes organizations make with eLearning
- How to avoid the pitfalls that befell many others
- Specific tips that will help get your eLearning projects off on the right foot
- How to adapt your approach to an ever-changing field
