e-learning skills gap

I was talking to a colleague the other day. He said that using open source is not because it’s free, rather it may cost more as it needs support staff to have wider and better skills to support learning technologies.

Interestingly, I came across The e-learning skills gap presentation by Clive Shepherd on the onlignment website. On the p32, it pointed out

Barries to the successful implementation of new learning technologies:

  • A lack of knowledge about its potential use and implementation (>65%)
  • A lack of skills to implement and manage e-learning (>50%)

It also provides useful e-books about e-learning. The e-books are not free for download though it says so.
