First it was a curiosity that became a fad, and then it was a genuine trend; now it’s a necessity. eLearning has long left the experimental or pilot stage and has gone mainstream. Everyone is doing it. But are we doing it well? The rush to eLearning is littered with the bones of mistakes and judgment errors, and eLearning projects built on high hopes but not much else. Combine this with a field that is rapidly changing, and it’s clear that getting it all right can be very challenging. What are the dos and don’ts of getting started, and, perhaps more importantly, not screwing it up after we get going?

This session focuses on the pitfalls and the key indicators of success or failure and will help you think about how well you and your organization are doing.
