I just finished a report for a client, and I’m psyched. They were really great folks to visit, and I feel like I really gave them some valuable thinking. I’m doubly psyched since the eLearning Strategy framework I’ve been working on (and presented at the eLearning Guild‘s last always-great conference) proved useful in helping to analyze their situation and generate recommendations.
It’s not a ‘pull off the shelf and use’ framework, it requires customization to a particular context, but it’s proved useful in helping to support analysis and guide recommendations. And it’s in flux, as it’s already improved since it first appeared on the model page (only slightly).
The point is that the steps have entailments, and while there are several entry points eventually you want to fill in the lower parts to provide a solid foundation as you move up. I hope to have a chance to talk about this more at an upcoming conference. Or perhaps with you?
