The Serious eLearning Manifesto is NOT a Jewel. It’s a Multidimensional Tool—if We Know How to Use It.
On the Serious eLearning Manifesto website you can read the endorsement statements of hundreds of elearning professionals throughout the world.
“I proudly endorse the Serious eLearning Manifesto. It is a brilliant document, not to mention a much needed one, that every professional in the Educational Technology arena should be familiar with and support.”
“I endorse the eLearning Manifesto! It is the best set of principles to date. Bravo!!”
“AWESOME! I support the Serious eLearning Manifesto and will do my part to live up to the 22 Supporting Principles and pledge to do my best to promote and support Serious eLearning! Thanks for putting this together. I look forward to the future of eLearning!”
Every time I go to the website and read the new endorsements, I get newly inspired. It gives me a great feeling to see how many people are dedicated to building great learning interventions.
Many of the signatories pledge to utilize the 22 principles in their own work and to encourage others to do the same. These sentiments are great, of course. But they are not enough. For e-learning to fulfill its promise, we also need to create second- and third-wave effects.
