 5 Minute Insights
Short on time? Look below for a summary of the key messages to take away from this Insight.
1. Focus on the learning needs of large audiences (but don’t forget the small ones)
What are the core learning needs that lots of people have – induction, health and safety, new equality regulations? These are the areas in which you can make a large impact using scalable technology. At the same time, the availability of free or low cost learning technologies means you can build flexibility into learning programmes and do much more for less investment. This is great news for smaller audiences, who are often denied any e-learning for purely budgetary reasons.
2. Develop a technology enabled learning strategy
When you have identified your learning needs, decide on the most suitable technologies for addressing them. Audio learning might be particularly suitable for dispersed audiences, wikis are great for letting groups of professionals share and learn, blogs are great for capturing experts’ tips and insights, and screen capture tools are ideal for creating systems training. Ensure, however, that the right technology is used for the right learning intervention, or it could all go to pot.
3. DIY content development
In this report we’ll list the free tools you can use to develop e-learning and blended learning for next to nothing. Choose the ones that best fit your circumstances and develop your own instructionally sound content as part of a technology-enabled learning strategy.
4. Use the power of the network and enable
Don’t try to develop everything yourself; you have a whole workforce to help you! Enable your people to develop their own content with easy-to-use tools and infrastructure. Put frameworks in place for them to create, categorise and share content and you will be able to deliver more learning, more quickly to more people. Remember, the training department doesn’t have to do it all. Set up the frameworks, encourage and facilitate, then get out of the way and let the learners drive.
5. Low cost learning portals
You don’t need to invest in a costly LMS to get content out there. Bring your learning materials together in a learning portal on the internet. Cheap hosting and free tools allow you to create a password-pro-tected learning site in a few days, or you could use a free open source Learning Management System such as Moodle.
2009: what’s new?
Four years on, these five key messages are still the key takeaways – butthe options for low cost, in-house development have exploded. In 2006, the term ‘rapid e-learning’ was coined to define this movement – and we’ve certainly embraced it at Kineo. Find out more at http://www.kineo.com/rapid-elearning.html  The tools market continues to grow, with Articulate and Captivate dominating, but plenty of other competitors – including some new low-cost or free tools like Udutu – fighting for screen space. You can read our tool reviews here:http://www.kineo.com/authoring-tools/rapid-e-learning-authoring-tools.htmlMoodle is the free tool that’s most changed the industry in the past four years. We’ve customised and implemented over 70 Moodle solutions for our clients. Find out more athttp://www.kineo.com/moodle-services/moodle-lms.html
