5 Tips for Beating the Credit Crunch with e-learning

by | Jul 27, 2009 | Articles

Delivering ‘More for Less’ is the key issue right now for Learning & Development and Business professionals. It’s been a core theme for Towards Maturity as evidenced from our own Benchmark Review, the Masie Centre recent ‘Barometer Findings’ and the recent research survey from LMMatters and Training Zone into budget trends.

In 2009, the training department will be under intense pressure not seen for many years. With training still seen as a cost, not an investment by many organisations, there will be strong temptation for management to make quick cuts. Those in Learning and Development know that such short term measures will damage the organisation in the long term – that skills development cannot be sacrificed today without impacting tomorrow’s effectiveness. L&D professionals also know that cutting training has a negative effect on productivity and performance – exactly what organisations need to avoid in these difficult economic times.
Now a white paper from Kaplan IT Learning provides 5 Tips for Beating the Credit Crunch with E-Learning. Kaplan focuses specifically on IT Software Implementation and Upgrades and recognises the typical challenges faced by Project Managers during software rollouts and how e-learning can help to overcome them. This white paper will also be of interest to those ‘getting started’ with learning technologies and building the business case, as well as those involved in IT projects.
The 5 top tips described in this white paper are:
1. Get approval – sell the idea and find a project
2. Go beyond ‘the course’
3. Save yourself time
4. Show value
5. Select your weapons

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.
