Building a business case for e-learning

"E-learning, surely it's another doomed-to-fail e-thing," many are saying. It's churned up waves of hype, numerous inflated ROI projections and grabbed headlines, but it will inevitably lead to less than adequate results for those gullible enough to launch headlong into such uncharted waters.

A Fresh Look At Levels of Custom eLearning Solutions | training-today | Scoop.it

How much does one hour of Level 2 elearning cost? and what about Level 3?

 

If you have been involved with custom eLearning development you have asked these questions. The concept of ‘levels’ of custom eLearning development is a commonly used standard matrix for comparing vendors; sadly, this is a much abused concept too.. Every vendor (and client) has a unique definition of levels and they seldom match.
