Below are some articles I just read in Chief Learning Officer Magazine (CLO).

E-Learning Is Dead. Long Live E-Learning!
By Sushant Buttan

E-learning has meant many things to many people over the past 15 years. There have been many versions, translations and interpretations, but has it really made an impact on learning effectiveness? From the “shovelware” days of the 1990s, when content was simply shoveled onto the Web and passed off as e-learning, to the current day, when there is an overdose of technology-laden course content, the e-learning industry has left many promises unfulfilled...
The sheer excitement of all the new technology could make one shiver. Catch-phrase abbreviations became the language of communications. If you were a training professional and wanted to be perceived as competent, you needed to know what LMS, LCMS, CMS, WBT, CBT, TBT, VCT, ILT and KMS meant.

On Demand: The Googlization of Learning
By John Ambrose

Just a decade or two ago, people thought of learning as a one-way communication, typically held in a classroom setting. Employees would leave their jobs for a while to attend training. Today, of course, most learning organizations realize that instructor-led training is no longer enough. Numerous studies have pointed to the shortcomings of traditional classroom settings for gaining and retaining knowledge.

According to a report by the Research Institute of America, 33 minutes after completion of a live course, students retain only 58 percent of covered information. By the second day, only 33 percent is retained, and by day 30, all but 13 percent of the information covered in the course is lost.
