10 Steps to E-learning

The success of a corporate e-learning initiative is based largely on business need analysis and identifying the best suitable technology and methodology, according to Fareesa Malik of the University of Pakistan, who gave a presentation at the Fifth International Conference on E-learning for a Knowledge-Based Society in Bangkok, Thailand.

Here are the 10 steps to effective implementation of e-learning:

1. Business need analysis (the most critical and important step).

2. Judge target audience’s existing skill level (persons need to undergo training).

3. Identify the best suitable technology and methodology for e-learning (by keeping in mind the audience, environment, business need, organization budgets, country situation and availability of resources).

4. Prepare feasibility report stating that the objective of training could be achieved by using the proposed e-training methodology.

5. Develop very interactive course contents and material.

6. Deliver the information electronically by using the selected methodology.

7. Encourage collaboration and interaction for knowledge sharing (which should be the premier objective of any corporate e-learning strategy).

8. With each module delivered, continuously get feedback through quizzes, assignments and exams.

9. Evaluation of outcome by comparing results achieved with results required.

10. Learn lessons from mistakes, so that they can be avoided in the future.

“The motto should be knowledge for all, try to make it accessible to any one, anywhere and anytime,” Malik noted.
