Taking the “e” out of e-learning
Learning & Organisational Development Manager
It’s broader than my previous E‑Learning Manager role, and I must admit that I’m mourning the loss of the term “E‑Learning” from my title.
Having said that, however, I consider it a sign of organisational maturity.
In my humble opinion, e-learning has converged with learning to such a degree in the corporate sector that, finally, it’s no longer meaningful to differentiate between them.
In the modern workplace, both learning and organisational development involve online tools and technologies by default. Anyone who isn’t embracing them will surely be left behind.
So while my job title has changed, I’ll continue to maintain a keen interest in e-learning and apply it to my new role… not just because I want to, but also because I must.
Whole new world
Now, after we have all argued for putting the “e” into e-learning, I propose to flip the argument on its head:
Let’s take the “e” out of e-learning.
In this age of blended learning, it’s a given.
To practice what I preach, I’m changing the name of my blog from E‑Learning in the Corporate Sector to the simpler but more inclusive Learning in the Corporate Sector.
Does that mean I’ll still blog about e-learning?
