From the Inside Flap
Where is e-learning?and organizational learning in general?headed? What are the learning challenges and opportunities that organizations face as they depend, more than ever, on the talent and expertise of their people to win in the marketplace? What's the best role for technology to play? In this groundbreaking book, organizational and e-learning expert Marc Rosenberg addresses these critical questions and shows that real impact happens through a confluence of workplace learning and performance strategies?not just e-learning or classroom training. Beyond E-Learning offers a timely roadmap that integrates training, e-learning, knowledge management, collaboration, and performance support to help bring about successful and sustainable organizational learning and performance improvement.
Beyond E-Learning follows Rosenberg's best-selling book, E-Learning, but goes further and deeper. It explains the most current thinking on how organizations learn and apply what they know to be successful, and explores the increasingly important role that technology plays, not as an end in itself but as a vital means to get there. This book goes beyond current practices, common myths and misconceptions about training and e-learning, and provides a clear path for taking advantage of an increasingly wider array of learning and performance approaches and technologies in the context of work. It focuses directly on leveraging organizational know-how, and presents a framework that can (at last) be a catalyst for true change in how organizations learn.
This book is filled with illustrative case studies that explore an increasing variety of solutions now available to enhance learning and performance. In addition, Beyond E-Learning contains essays by some of the most prominent leaders in the field, including Jay Cross, Lance Dublin, Bill Horton, Elliott Masie, Kevin Oakes, Allison Rossett, and others.?

What Rosenberg does is to lay out a vision of the Smart Enterprise, in which the focus is on performers rather than learners. He argues persuasively that technologies such as e-Learning, classroom learning, knowledge management, communications and collaboration technologies are best viewed not as individual technologies (or fads), but rather as complementary parts of a balanced strategy for performance improvement in enterprises which effectively translate data to knowledge to information to performance. Detailed chapters then discuss each of the key components of this strategy for performance improvement, including practical advice on how to implement them and where the pitfalls are. Examples and issue sidebars featuring luminaries in the field and corporate success stories add weight to the argument.
This is not just another "business book of the month" full of quick-fix half-truths. It is a mature, broad and comprehensive view of what it really takes to make any knowledge-intensive organization get what it needs to reach its goals. Senior line organization managers will find it essential; training managers will find it liberating and exhilerating -- or threatening. It's required reading for everyone responsible for making their enterprises smart.
This book is required reading for any learning and development professional. At a time when companies are asking about the value of training and how to translate it into performance, it outlines a model that encapsulates formal and informal learning but links them with important factors such as performance management, change management and the performance environment.
The book will be of value to business leaders, training professionals and consultants as it provides detailed approaches and case studies that take an organisation from where they are now to where they need to be. The focus is less on the actual e-learning courseware and more on performance. At the end of the book, there is also an excellent appendix that covers the nine e-learning warning signs, Collaboration Technologies; Primary Knowledge Management Development Activities; Sample Change Management and Communication Plan and an e-Learning Readiness Assessment Executive Team Alignment and Additional Resources.
This book comes highly recommended and must be in the library or reading list for any learning and development professional.
This book is the second edition or followup to the authors original book on E-Learning. It is perhaps the most complete analysis on the subject.
Education is in an interesting time. The basic structure of the ecucational system of a teacher and a group of students gathered around him dates from the time of the Greeks. Computer aided instruction where essentially a computer uses some of these same techniques to pass the knowledge of an expert on to students using a computer.
There are, a lot of little steps between the idea and the actuality. Of course there are the mechanics of how to do it. And there is the problem of finding the right teachers. [One military training course, set up by people who have 'been there, done that' teaches things like selecting a candy bar that won't melt in the desert (M&M's?) and how to armor a truck.] There's also playing on the skill that today's game playing kids have learned playing video games. What a way to teach someone how to drive a tank!
This is a book I'd recommend to anyone interested in or in charge of setting up a computer based training program. Dr. Rosenberg has 'been there, done that' in so far as e-learning is concerned.
