E-learning reportDoes your organization partake in any e-learning? If you currently don't offer e-learning to staff or management, you might consider it. Leap of Reason, an organization focused on supporting leaders and funders, recently published The Beyond-the-Hype Potential of E-Learning report. The report is based on a year of conversations with more than 100 leading thinkers, practitioners, and entrepreneurs. The aim of the report is to motivate leaders to contemplate how e-learning can make an impact on their organization.

Here are a few key points from the report:

  • The impact of e-learning on educational institutes will depend on several factors including brand, cost, place, and structure.
  • E-learning is changing how individuals develop skills for the workplace. It can do the same for how nonprofits, charities, foundations, and public libraries recruit and develop talent.
  • "Just-in-time learning" is now a reality. You can look up how to do a task, such as an Microsoft Excel formula or an effect in Adobe Photoshop instantly via instructional sites or tutorial videos on YouTube.
