From the Inside Flap:

Over the past few years, e-learning has taken the world of adult education by storm. It is now estimated that more than 3 million adults took at least one online course last year, and training managers in the field predict that e-learning will soon account for up to half of the training methods of most organizations. Despite its increasing popularity, professionals in the training-and-development field are still trying to figure out how to make e-learning really work. The one thing most companies do know is that they’ve spent a lot of money on it, but they’re not getting what they expected from their investment. How can you ensure that you—and your people—are getting the most out of this potentially valuable tool? Just throwing the newest or easiest technology at the issue does not effectively train people or provide good return on investment.  What businesses really need is a best-practices guide that tells them what is working—and how to make sure the money invested pays.

 

As a consultant, Anita Rosen has worked with many companies, assisting them to integrate current business goals and objectives into a successful Internet strategy. In e-Learning 2.0, she discusses the current state of e-learning, and identifies what is productive and what’s not. She reveals sound e-learning principles—brought to life through examples and illuminating real-world case studies, highlighting how trainers can move from classroom to web delivery. Here, Rosen focuses on what you really want to know, like the hottest trends in the marketplace, what other companies are doing, and how are they doing it successfully. This book provides a compact, easy-to-digest discussion of the successes (and failures) in the field, and also explains the most recent developments in technology.  e-Learning 2.0 provides invaluable advice on how to:

 

·           Better communicate with management.

·           Present your initiative to get funding and approval.

·           Evaluate new and emerging technologies to see if they will power your initiative.

·           Evaluate current courses to see if they are effective.

·           Add new technologies to provide better learning.

·           Understand what vendors are talking about so that you make the best tech­nol­o­gy decision.

·           Better integrate training needs with business direction.

·           Evaluate training initiatives.

 

Complete with the latest trends in Web 2.0 and the latest information on graphics and multi-media, as well as various types of e-learning, this is the one book that will help you develop a clearer vision, more focused goals, and a better way to measure your learning objectives.

Anita Rosen is a successful trainer, author, and speaker. She has appeared as a guest speaker on many business radio programs, and has been a keynote speaker for a number of conferences. Rosen brings more than  20 years of management experience in high-tech marketing, project management, and sales. Currently, she is President of ReadyGo, Inc. She lives in Mountain View, California.
