Provide Guidance and Feedback We will provide learners with guidance and feedback to correct their misconceptions, reinforce their comprehension, and build effective performance skills. Provide Realistic Consequences When providing performance feedback during learning, we will provide learners with a sense of the real-world consequences. Aim for Long-term Impact We will create learning experiences that have long-term impact—well beyond the end of instructional events—to times when the learning is needed for performance.
Provide Support for Post-Training Follow-Through We will support instruction with the appropriate mix of after-training follow-through, providing learning events that: reinforce key learning points, marshal supervisory and management support for learning application, and create mechanisms that enable further on-the-job learning.
Diagnose Root Causes When given training requests, we will determine whether training is likely to produce benefits and whether other factors should be targeted for improvement.
We will also endeavor to be proactive in assessing organizational performance factors—not waiting for requests from organizational stakeholders. Use Performance Support We will consider providing job aids, checklists, wizards, sidekicks, planners, and other performance support tools in addition to—and as a potential replacement for—standard elearning interactions.
Measure Effectiveness Good learning cannot be assured without measurement, which includes the following: a. Measure Actual Performance Results Ideally, an appropriate time after the learning for example, two to six weeks later , we will measure whether the learner has applied the learning, the level of success, the success factors and obstacles encountered, and the level of supervisor support where warranted.
Measure Learning Comprehension and Decision Making During Learning At a minimum, during the learning, we will measure both learner comprehension and decision-making ability. Ideally, we would also measure these at least a week after the learning. Support Learner Understanding with Conceptual Models We believe that performance should be based upon conceptual models to guide decisions, and that such models should be presented, linked to steps in examples, practiced with, and used in feedback.
The book offers specific, pragmatic, common-sense approaches to guide the development of successful technology-assisted learning. Michael Allen's Guide to e-Learning enables business executives to become discerning e-learning investors and instructional designers to create meaningful performance solutions. Read more Read less.

This book makes every list of "Top eLearning Books" I've seen. A lot has changed in the eLearning industry since the 1st edition came out 13 years ago and the new edition contains some great updates. Most importantly, Allen does a great job of "plain talk" in explaining practical ways to build better eLearning. I recommend it for both eLearning developers who are actually designing and building courses and business managers who are making business decisions to improve performance of employees.
Kindle Edition Verified download. Some great insights! However there is an inordinate focus on software design for eLearning that may be cumbersome for those not interested in designing software applications. So you have to read through that to get the subtleties of good design if you are using an already developed authoring system.
That was a bit tedious at times but still very much worth the read! A good overview of elearning, but not enough details on specific examples. There's too much talk in this book of what not to do, rather than examples of what to do. I was also less than fond of the use of "people who get it versus people who don't get it" dialogue.
What is it? Teach me what "it" is and what to do with it. If you're looking for a good overview of elearning, especially if you've never touched elearning before, this is your book. As a teacher of many years, Head Teacher of a faculty and a self taught elearning developer, I realised that much of what I learned through software and websites achieved the very results described in this book. Some progress, some attention, eventual boredom and not as much retention as I would have liked to have seen.
Not only will I be se the principles described in this book but I will teach the teachers under my direction these skills, techniques and methods. One person found this helpful.
The wisdom and wit of the author Excellent resource! The wisdom and wit of the author is refreshingly present throughout this book. I have learned so much and my approach to e-learning design and development have been positively impacted.
I found myself reflecting on work I've already done and what I could have done to improve. I will be keeping this book close by when I do future work. I cannot stress it enough. If you are in any way involved in the selection, downloading, marketing, design, or production of E-Learning This is not a programming book, it is a design book. As a Professor of web design, this book is required reading to pass my courses on E-Learning Design.
Allen knows what he is talking about and supports it with excellent examples on the CD. His writing is very down to Earth and easy to follow.
It is actually a quick read, but you will find yourself going back to this book often.
I've spoken on the topic of where's the fun in eLearning and know that most of what I've seen is "deadly boring.
One of the things I always regretted was not working in the MN office, as he, along with the rest of the Authorware team, conducted critiques of the work in progress being developed for customers. The few I did attend were always insightful and thought provoking.
Along with being pretty scary if your work was on the agenda, because you might have to listen to bad along with good feedback.
