The proliferation of e-learning in recent years has led it to being the immediate answer to many training and development challenges. But in addition to budget and time constraints, there are a number of other factors that play in determining which method of training is best for the situation at hand, among them tracking and reporting challenges, and regulatory and compliance requirements.

April’s Infoline, Basics of E-Learning Revisited, provides an overview of the evolution of e-learning as well as practical guidance on how to reach learning solution decisions.

In this Infoline, you will learn:

  • common e-learning traps
  • considerations when designing e-learning modules, specifically when doing so for continuing professional education certification
  • tips on deciding whether to buy from vendors or develop your own e-learning solution
  • e-learning competencies.
