E-learning extends beyond borders with more advantages than traditional learning, argues Ralph LaFontaine.

    I often wonder why the Government does not use services like ABC Australia for more educational programs. We need more services to educate those who are not employed. There are many programs that could be developed to target these types of groups. Also E-Learning is a great tool that also could be used to target these groups. The Government and the news media love to criticise people for being on welfare payments but little is done upskill them. Apart from TAFE there are no real alternatives other than YouTube.

    E Learning is a great tool, especially in tough financial times. However, we need to understand the challenges some organisational cultures present. How many organisations have invested in big e Learning platforms only to see a fraction of their people use it? The investment is proportional to usage and application, so if you delivered some traditional face to face training that was targeted, as opposed to a sweeping e Learning library, you just might find you have a better ROI…..maybe!
