Back to the Future Like Never Before
In the last decade, eLearning has been transformed by the advent of ever more sophisticated technologies. However, there are many promises that have not been fulfilled. Learners have improved access, but it is still not ubiquitous. Differentiation is possible, but far from being fully exploited. Multimedia is a buzzword we consistently hear, but an overwhelming amount of online content is still presented in a text-and-next format. ROI has improved for some institutions, but financial difficulties abound. In her keynote address, Ellen Wagner will review where we have traveled and the distance that remains for practitioners, researchers and institutions. Contrasting the promise with reality will provide a dynamic and provocative vision for what needs to be done to catalyze the next generation of eLearning.
