This is a great post by Brent Schlenker, that challenges our elearning standards.
I had a discussion recently with a friend who works for a large organisation in NZ. She was telling me how they have to endure the most boring elearning modules – most of the staff don’t even read the slides, and they click from one to the next until they get to the multiple choice quiz at the end. Doesn’t matter if they fail the first time, they can redo the quiz until the get the required pass. HR is happy – the box has been checked!
Clicking is not learning!
It’s these sort of examples, which unfortunately aren’t uncommon, that gives elearning a bad name. There is some awesome elearning out there, but not enough of it. Let’s spread the word, and all work towards creating good eLearning!
