If implemented correctly, e-learning can positively impact any organization. But so much of the e-learning created and invested in today relies on technology, and focuses on content instead of the learner and improving performance – the result – boring e-learning and wasted budgets! 
Join Dr. Michael Allen, as he explains how the 22 principles of the Serious eLearning Manifesto can help combat today’s e-learning failures by creating learning solutions that generate business impact. Dr. Allen will explain how following the Principles of the Manifesto can help you re-align current training needs for greater budget impact – focusing on your company’s greatest asset, its employees.

The e-learning experience can and should optimize use of the learner’s time, individualize the experience for full engagement, address needs, optimize practice, and prepare for transfer of learning to performance proficiency. So join Michael Allen as he shows how the Principles of the Manifesto act as a tool for leaders within learning and development departments to better understand the goals of their designers, and help them achieve those goals – resulting in a robust e-learning program that can improve a company’s bottom line, result in performance change, and improve your ROI.
In this webinar, attendees will:

  • Gain valuable knowledge of the Elearning Manifesto Principles
  • See examples of e-learning created with the Principles of the Manifesto in mind
  • Understand the ROI of using the Principles of the Manifesto to create your elearning
  • Understand the performance impact of using elearning that takes into consideration the Principles of the Manifesto
