Is elearning dead?

I saw this question recently in a blog. After reading further it was clear that what was meant by elearning was the typical, standalone, 20-30 minute piece of elearning, which was probably built in one of the popular authoring tools.

I think if that’s what elearning is, then my answer would be, not dead but in decline. If elearning means all forms of ‘electronic’ learning, then it’s about as dead as email.

From our point of view, elearning has always been about using technology appropriately, in other words choosing the best tool for the job. I find it disheartening when people say things like ‘video is taking over from elearning’ as, to us, video is a part of elearning.

We produce explainer videos which we believe are great for getting across a lot of information and ideas quickly. We spend a lot of time making them as succinct and easy to follow as possible because we feel that if thousands of people are going to watch them, they should be as good as it can be.
