Rapid e-Learning Research 2006

Written by Gabe Anderson Director, Customer Advocacy — Posted in E-Learning Industry

As I wrote about back in March, the eLearning Guild recently conducted a survey about rapid e-learning. On Monday it pubilshed the results of that survey in a new report, The Rapid e-Learning Research Report 2006, available free of charge to Guild Members.

Most significantly, “demand for rapid e-Learning among our community’s organizations has increased from 70% in 2005 … to 82% in 2006 (see Question 10 in this report).” But if you’re reading this, you probably already know that the demand for rapid e-learning is strong and getting stronger every day. We like that. And we’re proud to offer you the best rapid e-learning software in the world.

The summary for this new report continues:

    “In last year’s report we wrote that there may be no hotter topic in the world of e-Learning than rapid e-Learning and this same opinion seems to be holding true again this year. The eLearning Guild Research Committee has been studying this phenomenon for the past two and one-half years. We began by asking some simple and straightforward questions: Is rapid e-Learning simply a slick marketing buzz-word created to sell the latest authoring tools? Or is there really substance to the term?

    “Is there an emerging set of practices that truly constitute a replicable, scalable design process known as rapid e-Learning development? Both the 2005 report and this year’s study suggest that rapid e-Learning is becoming a more pervasive and disciplined practice as it struggles with and solves problems common to all e-Learning design and delivery efforts. The bottom line: rapid e-Learning is for real and seems to be here to stay.”

Now that’s what we like to hear. Of course, Articulate has long been at the forefront of the industry, setting the standard in PowerPoint to Flash conversion, so this comes as no surprise to us. It doesn’t hurt, though, to have so many of you come to the same conclusion. In fact, as you’ll see in Question 6 of the report, rapid development authoring tools have become synonymous with the very concept of rapid e-learning. And Articulate is the global leader in rapid e-learning.

Ergo, Articulate is rapid e-learning.

By the way, speaking of e-learning design efforts, did you know that we offer a Rapid E-Learning PowerPoint Template Kit, which comes free of charge with every license of the Articulate Rapid E-Learning Studio? The kit will help you to jump-start your rapid e-learning design efforts. (You can also purchase it separately in the Articulate Store.)
