The Big Question for Jan

What are the trade offs between quality learning programs and rapid e-learning and how do you decide?

So... my response... I'm not sure exactly how address the trade-offs. My experience is that every elearning project has some trade-offs, resources, time, money, energy, passion. The trade-offs between quality and speed is a tough question. I understand where the question comes from, our organizations are operating with real-time data and agility and flexibility is critical. So I guess if your "quality" learning program is not ready in time to educate your organization and the opportunity to improve performance passes, then it is not really a "quality" learning program. Right? On the flip side, if you decide your organization needs project management training and you create a power point stack that is accurate, but they don't comprehend any of the information and therefore don't change their behaviors in any way. You "rapid" e-learning is probably really poor quality.

So our challenge is to see were the speed requirement intersects with the quality requirement and execute.

Note: I didn't read the others response... Maybe I will now and reflect some more.

  2. No problem, Dave.

  3. I really enjoyed your analysis on Learning Management Systems based on time and quality. As you in a sense put it, a LMS may not always be the answer to a company's problems but a lot of the times they are. Check out our Online Media Center here at SyberWorks where you can see past successes in the e-Learning field using Learning Management Systems. Let's keep up the good work with e-Learning because it is an inevitable part of our future!
