What are your options for online learning initiatives?

Sunday, April 7th, 2013

When it comes to online training options, executives, human resource professionals and training professionals have several different options from which to choose. Some of the online options include:

  • Web-based/Online training
  • Email
  • Tele- or video conferencing
  • Collaborative document sharing
  • Online colleges and universities
  • Teleseminars
  • Webinars

Each option offers slightly different choices to training attendees. Additionally, each online training solution also carries its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Prior to getting into the details on each online training alternative, executives, human resource professionals and training professionals can see the overall benefits and drawbacks that online training opportunities provide to companies and to training attendees.

What makes eLeaP Learning Management System LMS Different?

Friday, October 30th, 2009

I have been asked many times. So what makes eLeaP different? Why did our customers choose us and why should you choose eLeaP LMS?

I thought about several business type responses like: We provide positive return on your e-learning investment, we are scalable and secure and completely easy to use. eLeaP is one of a few LMS to combine course creation with comprehensive user management, tracking and documentation and so on.

But I had an experience with a contact I have been trying to bring in. What became poignantly clear is this:

Most organizations and training companies simply need an assist getting their training and e-learning programs started. They are looking for reliable, professional staff to help them set up their LMS account (hopefully without having to pay through the nose), and then some help uploading their existing content or new content to begin their training program.

Sounds simple right? Not quite. Not all LMS or e-learning software companies are created equal. You see with Telania | eLeaP, we don’t just throw you into the deep end and say “good luck”.

We don’t rest till you are set up and your program is humming along just fine.

We don’t rest when you CALL us (yes CALL us) for free and request help with a feature or something you want to achieve in the system.

We don’t rest when your students, employees, users or staff contact us via phone, fax, email, or live support.

And we gladly and passionately provide the answers to your questions and your requests.

We do this without requiring you to pay anything.

We do this because we love talking and helping our customers. I know its sounds cliche but even though we are a technology company, we are pretty old fashioned when it comes to our customers.

Why do I write all these things for you to see. Because I am sick and tired of other companies giving us all a bad name – I am sick of having to apologize for the awful behavior of some tech and e-learning companies.

We are supposed to be in the business of education. Well lets help our customers educate and quit looking at only sales quotas and quarterly reports!

I welcome your opinion.

e-Learning Spending is On the Rise

Monday, September 17th, 2007

According to a report by Global Industry Analysts Inc., “eLearning: A Global Strategic Business Report,” e-learning is on the rise, and demand for it is expected to exceed $52.6 billion by 2010 worldwide.

Additionally, the study said e-learning solutions are being incorporated in a large variety of informational and training applications at many corporations.

E-learning is now the method companies use second-most often to deploy learning and development, according to the study.

More and more products are available from various content, service and technology providers, but interoperability has been a challenge — the study said a lack of interoperable standards has the potential to stunt the growth, which might have started already.

The study also found the U.S. e-learning market is the world’s largest, as its 2007 revenues are expected to exceed $17.5 billion. Further, the U.S. corporate e-learning market share is more than 60 percent. Read more …

 

eLearning Fun – Use Youtube to make eLearning Fun again

Saturday, November 11th, 2006

Full disclosure: my company eLeaP provides an easy to use, comprehensive eLearning Management Platform.

My comments are not necessarily addressed to the techno wiz kids who come up with the best learning management systems or online learning solutions … my comments to anybody who is interested in putting the fun back into elearning and web-based training. Yes I know …. we live in the 24 hour news cycle and production lines. We need to push out learning courses at will. We need to have a system to allow us post new product specs, competitive analysis, sales presentations etc. Believe me I understand that … I will be out of business if all of these things did not happen.

BUT and a BIG BUT, are we really doing this for our company objectives of saving money and moving new hires or employees through the assembly line training system (whether we are actually imparting knowledge or not), or even satisfying the training department’s innate need to justify budgets? If I have offended anyone, I apologize. I am trying to make a point.

My Point: Make eLearning Fun. Use Simple but creative learning objects to make eLearning and Web-based training enjoyable and fun again!

How? Take a silly video of yourself, slap it into YouTube, and import it into your training course. After all if a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is definitely worth a heck of a lot more!

How? Use interactive elearning management system (LMS) features such as forums and Whiteboards to engage in informal and blended learning. You will be surprised at the wealth of knowledge and information that is bottled up in people’s heads ….waiting to be unleashed.

How? How about simple cartons, jokes, and humor to liven up your elearning courses.

How? Ask for feedback from your course takers or users. They will tell you exactly what “floats their boats”. Use that info in your next course development.

How? Shameless plug coming up: Talk to Don at eLeaP. You will amazed at how easy you can implement all of the above using eLeaP Learning Management Platform.

 

Online Learning: Employers don’t mind online degrees

Wednesday, September 6th, 2006

For the NPR fans out there check out Talk of the Nation with Neal Conan as he discusses online learning.

“More and more students are earning their college degrees at the keyboard, as higher education goes online. Neal Conan leads a discussion on the popularity, promise and problems of attending college via the Internet. ” NPR

** eLeaP believes that one of the bed rocks of the Internet Revolution is self development and empowerment. We believe anyone who wants to learn should have the tools and platforms needed to realize their full potential. That is why eLeaP will soon be rolling out myeLeaP – a learning and human capital development tool for individuals, schools and non-profits. Stay tuned.
