Where we are today … Where we are today … Who Uses E-Learning?
At institutions of higher education: 3.5 million+ students are participating in on-line learning at institutions of higher education.   Students generally appear to be at least as satisfied with their on-line classes as they are with traditional ones (The Sloan report, based on a poll of academic leaders).

But…How do you know what to trust? –Do we buy? –Is it adaptable to our needs? –Do we develop our own? u Time u Resources u Expertise
e-learning is providing huge cost savings and other benefits
the cost savings The bottom line … the cost savings & other benefits of e-learning implementation MedCentral Health System – Mansfield, Ohio –Reported annual savings of $10,000 in paper and development costs alone Greenville Hospital System – –Reduced their number of regulatory training hours by over 70% in one year –Compliance rates jumped from 88% to 98%. –Cost savings improved 71% in the first year The Childrens Medical Center – Dayton, Ohio –Achieved an internal record of 97% completion rate for mandatory education –Average time taken to finish a course decreased from 1.5 – 2 hours to 50 minutes; a time savings of over 44% Williamson Medical Center – Franklin, Tennessee –Met 100% of their Joint Commission training requirements –Reduces their training costs by approximately 60%.
What contributes to savings?
Benefits other than monetary….
WHERE ARE WE GOING … ? u Podcasts Pod=iPod / cast=broadcast, aka webcasts, netcasts, learncasts Send audio/visual content over the internet for portable playback on an iPod or a PC.
