Finally, there is relief for trainers who have always wanted to implement an e-learning strategy, but have been prohibited because of cost. Pfeiffer, a Wiley imprint (NYSE:JWa) (NYSE:JWb), and a leader in human resource development for more than 30 years, has released E-Learning Solutions on a Shoestring: Help for the Chronically Underfunded Trainer (Bin # 0-7879-7712-8, $40), by industry expert Jane Bozarth. The book serves as a guide to understanding what e-learning technologies can do for companies on a tight budget and how they can easily, and inexpensively, incorporate these strategies into their training programs.
E-Learning Solutions on a Shoestring is filled with the nuts-and-bolts information needed to incorporate e-learning solutions into an organization at minimal cost. The book offers a myriad of strategies for building from-scratch programs: recycling, reusing and repurposing resources; negotiating reasonable expenses for "store bought" e-learning products; and incorporating real-world ideas for assembling tools, techniques, and strategies into workplace solutions.
E-Learning Solutions on a Shoestring examines general information about e-learning: what it is, why to use it, and what skills are helpful for training professionals who are seeking to obtain cost-effective e-learning solutions. The book also looks at whether an organization should buy e-learning solutions or build them in-house thereby avoiding expensive buys. For example: Agencies often buy products unaware that running them would require the purchase of another. The book even includes scoreboard boxes offering side-by-side comparisons costs of homemade versus store-bought solutions. For example: The cost of outsourcing the creation of a custom-designed, 5-minute Flash movie with animated text and audio - $500; the cost of creating a similar product using PowerPoint - $0.
Jane Bozarth has been a training practitioner since 1989. She is a frequent speaker at industry conferences including Training, Online Learning, ASTD and the National Association for Government Training and Development. As the e-learning coordinator for the Central Personnel office for North Carolina state government she is responsible for designing, developing, programming and launching online learning programs and providing consultation services for agencies wishing to implement/utilize online learning.
