"Don't Get Trapped by Your e-Learning Tools"
by Allan Henderson
About this Free Article:
Henderson reminds us that focusing on tools, whether consciously or by habit, means we're focusing on the wrong things. He suggests that relatively easy solutions abound and that many of those solutions are far more rapid than the touted rapid approaches. And they can be more effective, too. No question, he found methods that were faster and less expensive.
Allan Henderson is the author of The E-Learning Question and Answer Book, which focuses on the major concepts for e-learning in the workplace, especially the way that tradeoffs play a central role. Allan has held a number of management, technical, and training positions at IBM for the past thirty-five years and is currently the e-learning manager for business analytics in IBM’s Software Group.

"The real learning at conferences takes place in the hallways. This wonderful book is like eavesdropping on those conversations, except that Michael has put the top thinkers in our field in the hall for you."
