eLearning

eLearning is a broad topic and has many meanings depending on whom you speak with. So to start out, I would like to define anumber of terms; eLearning, virtual classroom, and learning management system (LMS). I wanted to do this we seem not to be keeping up with technology so well and grasping this keys or brass ring of eLearning can help leverage the new wave of workplace productivity and the way we learning general.

    Seems no matter how much technology you have access to, if those in charge are from the “old guard” or status quo– reform or forward thinking advances in education or society that leverages technology are most likely not to occur; at least in a transparent manner– probably underground or in the back ground at best.

    Open source seems to be the way, Moodle is probably the king of that one. Blackboard seems (to me) to be elite LMS of choice. I was once told that if you buy a Rolls Royce or Porsche Cheyenne, e.g., you don’t have to worry if all the extras are there and that things are correct…it’s all there! My response was, “…what’s all there?” “Don’t be silly…” was their response; actually it seems they didn’t know/ didn’t feel the need to know.
    There are many checklists and such to assist with such tasks.

    Now a days, 32 bit servers can no longer provide the required engine for a company looking to stay “cutting edge” and ahead of the competition. My mentors from my early days in the Navy always said, “…stay current and you’ll always have a job”. No I’ve tried to do that, but this should be the mantra for company? Especially if they wish to continue to be a going concern, wouldn’t you think so?

    Sharepoint seems to be at the heart of a lot of this; The MS Office 2010 and so on also require Sharepoint to leverage or take full advantage. A company’s Learning Management System (LMS) would leverage Sharepoint technology, BUT A 64 BIT SERVER IS REQUIRED! They could get costly, but one can lease as well; Maybe 6,000USD? for a 3.4ghz processor, 4 core, 16 gbit RAM, 1 terabit storage…

    The finance guys always want to know the Return on Investment (ROI), fair question. When people come to your site to take courses, you must have something others don’t– branding 101! And then deliver! Courses times participants equals revenue?

    Bottom line, look into it and stay number one…
