Background of a Published Paper on Second Generation ELearning Innovation

Background of Published Paper

The elearning industry continues its upward trend as organizations raises their expectations of human resource performance in the workplace. Learning to overcome roadblocks during work to boost performance will require contextual (Morgan, G. and Adams, J. 2009) and instantaneous learning (Barrie, J. and Pace E. 1998) and almost instantaneous learning. The same trend applies to all industries in their goal to minimize process disruption (industries) and maximize task performance (all sectors) while lowering the cost of human resource HR training. To lower cost (human resource development and learning) and delivery of training, elearning industry must respond with cost effective models of implementation using a combination of information technology structures, open source solutions and highly intuitive web2 solutions. In dissecting different models of elearning companies, existing ones show that it can either be a content delivery system, a course creation system or a combination of both. Content delivery elearning sells learning management systems with or without pre-built content. Content creation systems primarily design content and have authoring tools to create custom content. These authoring tools may or may not be available to customers. Some learning management systems have this capability built in, but others do not. As a content delivery system and a course creation system an elearning company must have its own system or a variety of systems. For their learning management systems, elearning companies may use either proprietary standard or open-source solutions. Note that these companies may sell software as a stand-alone or a hosted service. These companies may also sell pre-built content in the form of training courses sold to company clients as a subscription service.
