Supporting your e-learning initiative
An e-learning initiative in most organizations begins tentatively with ideas being thrown around, and a couple of managers “trying out” the options from already-assigned budgets for training or IT investments. Occasionally the decision to adopt e-learning is a strategic one and the initiative is driven from the top. Whatever the size of the initiative and whatever its origin, the initiative needs support and commitment for it to work.
Some common ways to support e-learning initiatives:
  • Understand and accept the fact that most of learners are not terribly self-motivated and learning is probably low on their list of priorities. Enthusiasts are likely to have been carried away by the (very real) promise of e-learning and fail to acknowledge that everyone may not see it quite that way. Once the rose tinted glasses have been removed, it’s easier to get down to making e-learning deliver on its potential.
  • Get the top executives (CEO and equivalents) to explain the strategic intent behind the initiative, preferably in small groups to people. This helps learners understand the big picture and appreciate the relevance of, and need for e-learning. It also allays any fears that learners may have about the new system.
  • Make the e-learning initiative have real consequences, and not just “another-thing-to-do” for learners. One way of doing this is to link the e-learning to performance management systems.
  • Combine “push” with “pull” techniques. Don’t just prescribe the e-learning to be completed, but make the learning desirable in some way for the learners. One long term approach is to foster an environment that appreciates self-driven learning by employees and others.
  • Make is easy for your learners to speak to a “real person” when learners are taking a self paced e-learning course. Get on board internal subject experts to answer content queries and technical support for login and related issues.
  • Make it easy for learners to “get started” – the first step is often the toughest! You could create “How-to use” demonstrations and compelling internal marketing material to “sell” the e-learning within the organization.
  • Make achievements visible and celebrate!
