Your Top 10 e-Learning Challenges List

by , vice president of client services | @rhillsites

What a great response!! Thank you all for taking the time to add your thoughts and comments. Since I had the fun task of reading through all of the comments, I decided that I would just make a new Top 10 List from all of the submitted comments. These are in no particular order – but they are all great!

  1. Daniel Albarran – The assumption that all that is necessary for creating a course is in the manuals, slides, PDFs, etc (raw documentation).
  2. Scott Nipper – Managers that say, "Just video tape John talking - people will learn from that."
  3. Paul Safyan – Being limited by or enamored by certain technology, rather than doing good design.
  4. Jennifer – Requests for the overuse of e-learning bells and whistles.
  5. Lisa P – Having stakeholders not see the value in e-learning and not want to invest the money to get a quality product.
  6. Yuna – Rampant objectives. I find lots of courses have a laundry list of objectives that seem to eclipse the final actual goal of the course. 
  7. Sylvia – Business reviewers who don't provide timely reviews that they committed to at the beginning of the project thereby delaying the project.
  8. Amy – The large skill set required. Often designers have to be developers, instructional designers, graphics artists, tech support, SMEs, technical writers, proofers, etc!
  9. Kara – I usually hear “We can’t do a CBT. Our employees hate them.”
  10. Tim Johnston – Content developers who have too many other responsibilities to have the time to create high quality content within the deadline.

It’s Time to Start Saving

by , vice president - client services | @rhillsites

Well, it’s March and with it comes the dreaded tax season. While preparing your taxes, you’ll likely take some time to evaluate the performance of your investments and retirement planning efforts (if any).  The good news is that a slight rally in the market over the past quarter or two means we may not fear opening those 401K statements as much as we have in the past few years.
