Synopses & Reviews
Praise for Beyond E-Learning
"Marc Rosenberg has done such a wonderful job that I may replace all of my other books on e-learning, knowledge, and performance with this one book. Beyond E-Learning demonstrates how organizational leaders can take online learning to the next level—where it's seamlessly integrated into everything we do. Finally!"—Marcia L. Conner, managing director, Ageless Learner; editor, Creating a Learning Culture; author, Learn More Now; and former vice president of education, PeopleSoft
"There is a quiet revolution occurring in the field of organizational learning—traditional learning programs are giving way to more effective knowledge solutions. In this outstanding text, Marc Rosenberg leads the way."—Donald A. Deieso, Ph.D., president and CEO, EduNeering, Inc.
"Marc Rosenberg has done it again. In Beyond E-Learning, he breaks through all of the buzzwords and clutter and presents fresh, exciting insights into how organizations can get real breakthroughs in workplace learning."—Diane Hessan, president and CEO, Communispace Corporation
"Marc Rosenberg's book has 100% of your daily requirement of truth, wisdom, and visionary thinking with none of the hype and hysteria that usually surround e-learning. If you are a CLO, or want to be one, buy this book and meet your future."—William Horton, author, Designing Web-Based Training and Evaluating E-Learning
"Business requirements are changing so rapidly and powerfully that it is hard for learning professionals to keep up. We all need to look beyond our current practices for new perspectives. Beyond E-Learning provides multiple visions of the future for our field. Extremely helpful in these crazy times!"—Elliott Masie, president, The MASIE Center, and author, Learning Rants, Raves and Reflections
"There are numerous publications on e-learning, but none with anywhere near the depth and wisdom that Marc Rosenberg consistently provides. Beyond E-Learning is meaty, meaningful, and a must-read not only for learning and performance professionals but even more importantly for managers responsible for investing in costly learning technologies and systems. Just great again!"—Harold D. Stolovitch, emeritus professor, Université de Montréal; principal, HSA Learning and Performance Solutions LLC; and author, Telling Ain't Training and Training Ain't Performance

Where is e-learning—and organizational learning in general—headed? What are the learning challenges and opportunities that organizations face as they depend, more than ever, on the talent and expertise of their people to win in the marketplace? What's the best role for technology to play? In this groundbreaking book, organizational and e-learning expert Marc Rosenberg addresses these critical questions and shows that real impact happens through a confluence of workplace learning and performance strategies—not just e-learning or classroom training. Beyond E-Learning offers a timely roadmap that integrates training, e-learning, knowledge management, collaboration, and performance support to help bring about successful and sustainable organizational learning and performance improvement.
Beyond E-Learning follows Rosenberg's best-selling book, E-Learning, but goes further and deeper. It explains the most current thinking on how organizations learn and apply what they know to be successful, and explores the increasingly important role that technology plays, not as an end in itself but as a vital means to get there. This book goes beyond current practices, common myths and misconceptions about training and e-learning, and provides a clear path for taking advantage of an increasingly wider array of learning and performance approaches and technologies in the context of work. It focuses directly on leveraging organizational know-how, and presents a framework that can (at last) be a catalyst for true change in how organizations learn.
This book is filled with illustrative case studies that explore an increasing variety of solutions now available to enhance learning and performance. In addition, Beyond E-Learning contains essays by some of the most prominent leaders in the field, including Jay Cross, Lance Dublin, Bill Horton, Elliott Masie, Kevin Oakes, Allison Rossett, and others.?
A follow-up to his best-selling E-Learning, Beyond E-Learning explains the most current thinking on how organizations learn and apply what they know to be successful, and explores the increasingly important role that technology plays, not as an end in itself but as a vital means to get there. The book also provides a clear path for helping to integrate learning—including e-learning—knowledge management, and performance support, and will help training professionals and the organizations they serve go beyond common myths and misconceptions about training and e-learning, focus training/learning activities directly on organizational know-how, and implement a framework that can (at last) be a catalyst for true organizational learning.
