E-Learning 101: Tips to make e-learning stick

Susan Boyd is the owner of a computer consulting firm in Philadelphia. She is a prolific writer, contributing to numerous training and technical magazines. In the May 2002 issue of Learning Circuits, Boyd (2002) writes about ways for e-learning to have a lasting impact on the learner.

The tips include:

  1. Creating curriculum that is job-focused
  2. Making learning interactive
  3. Providing effective support materials
  4. Preparing managers and learners for the distance learning environment
  5. Providing learners with support
  6. Monitoring, reporting, evaluating and modifying the course as needed
  7. Identifying future needs

The interesting thing about this is that these same tips would be effective for any learning environment which should remind us that the medium is NOT the message. The form of delivery is a tool that should be selected that most effectively enhances the learning objectives.

Not all learning is effective in an online environment (gasp! From an IDOL student) and not all learning must occur in the classroom. Effective trainers need to determine what the training goals and objective are before deciding on the delivery method.
