We need to be clear upfront, what is traditionally called e-learning or online learning - usually a library of online materials and even videos, doesn't work, it is boring, no-one does it and it is largely a waste of time and money - in our opinion only of course - what has been your experience?
The world of learning is changing. Many organizations have experimented with more traditional e-learning approaches and have been largely unsuccessful in achieving engagement in the use of online learning tools and failed to deliver measurable learning impacts. It is also important to avoid the online presentation - time to do my email - syndrome and overcome the barriers of overly complex technology.
Thankfully there are now new approaches that can have a significantly higher impact for the organisation and drive measurable learning benefits for even larger dispersed and diverse teams.
It remains true that all really good learning is experiential and interactive and the real opportunity is to achieve this successfully with facilitated online and participant centric appraoches.

Best Practice Approaches for Deploying Learning and Development Programmes
We recommend deploying three structural approaches for best practice learning that delivers skills building in a practical and engaging way, embeds and sustains the learning and allows for deployment in multiple geographies and in any language, typical cohort sizes across the region are usually around 60-100 participants at one time.
The three recommended approaches are:
1. Classroom centric, with post program online facilitated skills development
2. Modular face to face learning and online facilitated action learning
3. Virtual facilitated learning with online peer centric action learning
