Overview

In basic physics, mechanical advantage describes the ability of a simple mechanism to produce an output force greater than the input force. E-learning delivers a learning advantage-by reducing the cost of learning by about a third-and either reducing time of learning by a third, or increasing the effectiveness of learning by a third. With e-learning, both the enterprise and the learner get more out than they put in.

If they want their people to work at peak performance and to remain competitive, every enterprise and small to medium sized business need to face up to the challenge of implementing and delivering e-learning.

E-learning is built from processes, products, services, and technologies-but it is none of those things. Instead, it is a strategic approach to learning in the corporation. Without a robust, business-driven strategy to guide implementation and delivery, e-learning is bound to fail.

E-Learning Strategies is designed to help decision takers and implementation teams understand the elements of e-learning and the issues surrounding them. With chapters divided into What You Need to Know and What You Need to Do, E-Learning Strategies is a valuable resource for anyone responsible for e-learning strategy and execution.

E-Learning Strategies covers the whole implementation process-strategy, vendor selection, technology implementation, culture change, content development, and delivery. It is designed to help both decision takers and implementation teams to understand the key issues, to devise the best strategy for their learning requirements, and to implement it successfully first time.

Case studies provide practical insights into how BP, PWC Consulting, The Dow Chemical Company, and The Royal Bank of Scotland Group have met the challenges of e-learning-and how they have benefited.
