Beyond E-Learning: Approaches and Technologies to Enhance Organizational Knowledge, Learning, and Performance

Marc J. Rosenberg

ISBN: 978-0-787-97757-3 November 2005 Pfeiffer 400 Pages


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.
