Almost twenty years later - I did not see this coming...
In 1999 I started as a competence manager with the Emergency dispatchers in Sweden, and introduced E-learning. It was more of a change management-project than a techie project, since e-learning was new to most of the staff then. But we got over the hurdles and it went well. Really well. One of my pet peeves was "you should not have to do training (or be an engineer), to handle your e-learning, it should be user friendly and intuitive!".
Almost twenty years later, one of my major problems at a client, with a mixed agegroup (25-65), is that they are so used to e-learning being just a boring presentation on their computers, they cannot handle the interactions! A lot of the users expect it to just roll while they sit (sleepily) watching it and maybe even doing other stuff at the same time.
I did not see that coming. I actually HAVE to make an introductionary course to teach the users how to do e-learning, that this-is-not-a-video: You have to be active, curious, click on things, solve problems and answer tasks, in order to complete your training.
And - parden me for being rude - going through the community, with loads of wonderful freebies and good discussions, I also realise that a majority of the wonderful stuff we share with each other are "presentations". Not "learning-activities" ...
Do you agree? Did we bring this on ourselves? Am I being naive?
