In 2004, IDC predicted that only 35% of corporate training will take place in traditional settings.1 The majority of training now makes use of some form of technology and distance learning techniques. As designers develop these new learning systems, they are faced with the challenge of creating:
- Training that people actually take
- Training that changes behavior
- Training that managers can leverage
- Training that can be easily managed
- Training that can be quickly developed
- Training that can be rapidly deployed
- Training that is cost-effective
In the haste to “get it out there,” organizations are ignoring some basic realities about technology and learning, and about today’s learners. This paper introduces twelve “truths” that cannot be avoided if distance learning is to be successful. These truths come from discussions in eLearning literature, from customer feedback, and from ej4’s experience in creating rapid deployment learning situations.
The truths can be used as a roadmap to create an effective distance learning strategy, or as a checklist to evaluate the effectiveness of current approaches.
