e-Learning is not just about putting lecture content online

The great fallacy that has been foisted upon many schools and organization is that e-Learning will reduce cost and effort, while increasing accessibility to education and training. While it may be all that, these cannot be the main reason for implementing e-Learning. The move to e-Learning must be predicated upon delivering a BETTER educational experience and outcome. These cannot come about through reduced cost and effort.

The attached review provides food for thought along these lines...

"The vast number of people working and learning remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic will change the way we work and learn in the future. That’s a given. But I’ve read many articles that seem to view the choice of eLearning as all-or-nothing; a future where all learning occurs online or a wholesale return to in-person training. That’s not a choice that anyone actually has to make. Glowing descriptions of how eLearning improves accessibility, reduces training costs, or saves businesses money and time are right to highlight the many benefits of moving some training online. There are costs as well, though. Looking at moving to online instruction as a black-and-white issue perpetuates myths about eLearning and potentially harms learners. In reality, newfound proficiency with eLearning and appreciation for its potential points to the real future of learning: A blend of the approaches that best meet the needs of each specific learner population."
