Results of the 10th Annual CIPD survey were released in April and their findings on the use of e-learning at work provide some useful insights on perceptions of e-learning.

  • For the first time, over 50% of respondents report that they are using e-learning
  • 97%  agree that ‘e-learning demands a new attitude from the learner’
  • 95% agree that ‘e-learning is effective when combined with other forms of learning’
  • e-learning is offered to 60% of staff but only taken up by 30%
  • Only 8% say e-learning is an effective learning intervention (64% say that it is fairly effective)
  • e-learning is pretty near the bottom when it comes to participants perception of the most effective learning medium

Full details can be downloaded from the CIPD web site

Clive Shepherd has also posted some additional observations on his blog ‘CIPD gives e-learning a mixed report’

For specific highlights around e-learning take a look at CIPD’s e-learning Progress and Reports document which was revised in April 2008 with data from the main survey.

The results highlight that benefits of investment in learning technologies are not guaranteed – Towards Maturity research by e-skills UK highlights that more mature implementations are more likely to achieve take up and deliver results.

The fact that more are investing in this area makes it even more important for us to dig deeper through research and by sharing good practice, to understand how they can be best implemented for the benefit of the learner and of their organisation.

The Great Training Robbery

The Great Training Robbery

According to research published by Harvard Business School (HBS), organisations across the globe are experiencing ‘The Great Training Robbery’ because the correct conditions and culture for learning are not in place. People are not ready and willing to change, and ultimately learn.

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
