Program Description: 
The dirty little secret about e-learning is that a lot of it is bad.  Ok, maybe it’s not such a secret, but we all know that the quality spread on e-learning programs is enormous.  How do you build (or buy) e-learning programs that people will want to use?  How do you create real value in your e-learning offerings?  How do you create transfer from e-learning to actual job performance?  This presentation covers the major characteristics of great e-learning and provides a simple assessment strategy that you can use to make a reasonable determination about the quality of the e-learning programs you use.  Creating great e-learning is both a science and an art, but separating good programs from junk is not rocket science.  Adhering to a few simple principles will add a lot to the quality of your e-learning efforts.  
This session is for instructional designers, e-learning developers, and managers and executives (in the training organization and in the field) who want their e-learning strategy to be more sustainable and effective.
Topics covered:
 A checklist that can be used as a basis for e-learning evaluation will be offered.
