Bob Little (2104) The fifth annual, top ten e-learning movers and shakers Industry Today, January 2
It is interesting to note how the terminology changes over time. It seems that e-learning is now a term referring mainly to corporate training, while online learning is now more associated with k-12 and post-secondary education. How or why this has happened though beats me.
Certainly, this post is about corporate e-learning. I recognized very few names among the 70 or so writers and bloggers listed here (ones I do know are Elliott Masie, who was the top listed mover and shaker for the second year running, Harold Jarche, Jay Cross, Clark Quinn, and Donald Clark.)
This suggests I should spend more time following what’s happening in corporate e-learning, as I think both sectors can learn from each other, even recognizing that they are very different markets. For instance I suspect that corporate e-learning has far more experience in using simulations than would be the case for universities or even two-year colleges (high cost to develop, but high returns in performance). But maybe I’m wrong. What do you think?
Anyway, if you want to know what’s happening in corporate e-learning, Industry Today’s list would be a good place to start.
