Don’t let e-learning intimidate you – it can be cheap, fun and more effective than traditional training modes.
Training consultant Anita Rosen designed her book to resemble one of the “asynchronous e-learning courses” she describes within its pages. Her presentation on e-learning is exceptionally clear and is filled with very strong content. Rosen explains that you can’t make many of the decisions involved in developing e-learning courses too far in advance, because technology is changing so quickly and new tools are emerging constantly. That said, she does a great job of methodically covering the major aspects of e-learning. She explains current principles and practices, and sums them up at the end of the book in a guide for “subject matter experts” who design e-learning courses. getAbstract recommends this book to corporate trainers, academic distance-learning developers, and anyone else who makes decisions about training.
In this summary, you will learn
- What e-learning is;
- How to design a good e-learning course; and
- What factors determine success or failure in e-learning.
