|I wholeheartedly agree with, and endorse this manifesto. This is what is needed to turn the eLearning industry around and on it’s head, so that eLearning can be meaningful and appropriate to meet the needs of users and their educational requirements.|
|This manifesto aligns with the 2001 Agile Manifesto that stoves to find a better way to develop software. Makes sense to leverage for better eLearning.|
|Yes, right on the money! I wished I came up with this maifesto. eLearning should change and live up to it’s promise. It should be learner oriented, performance base (behaviour change), it should attracht and motivate people, personalized en much more. I fully endorse this Manifesto|
|This Manifesto finally puts what the eLearning professional strives for into a concise format that can be used as a daily commitment to quality.|
|I endorse and strongly agree with the principals in the eLearning Manifesto.|
|We need flexible, targeted learning to help our learners succeed.|
|I endorse this Manifesto and pledge to implement it to the best of my ability|
|I Brian Wrest do swear to apply these principles in all performance improvement efforts be it in eLearning, instructor led training, or performance support.|
|I whole heartedly agree with this manifesto for eLearning.|
|It is important that each of us, in our own organizations as well as our own personal commitment, strive to improve our industry and set higher standards. The Manifesto is a step towards this goal.|
|Great ideas here. I am so glad to see this.|
|What really speaks to me are the principles that have been outlined. There are many ideals here that I have tried to live up to, then there are those I want to live up to, and a few that I haven’t yet thought of to explore. In a time when budgets often are the first thing that matter in organizations, it’s more and more important to prove and show your worth and value to an organization. Implementing these principles into each of the solutions that we create for our organizations will and can only solidify our true value.|
|Thanks to the thinking and vision of these 4 industry leaders. What you see if what we’ve seen, for years.
As an L&D industry, we have got to get our GAME ON or we will cease to be relevant to the businesses we serve.
|I believe in Serious eLearning!|
|The work we do in helping people learn is ‘sacred’ work. If we just create content heavy, learning poor courses we fail in our responsibility.|
|I endorse the Serious eLearning Manifesto.|
|I endorse the manifesto and think it reflects the same principles that Michael Allen has been supporting, promoting, and teaching for years. Well done.|
|The manifesto is based on solid, empirical evidence that supports what we should be doing when we build our e-learning.|
|We are exited about bringing this tool to our development of our eLearning modules. It’s time to create learning that will help people do better and to BE BETTER. Realistic case scenarios, allowing people to work through challenges, provide options and then have realistic consequences to those choices. Our learners are adults, they have some level of ‘smarts’, lets work with those ‘smarts’.|
|Excited to be a part of the mission and commitment to deliver serious and effective eLearning to the masses!|
|I hereby endorse the serious elearning manifesto in my own work as an instructional developer.|
|It’s not about training – it’s about performance. I agree with the manifesto.|
|I endorse this Manifesto. I believe establishing the need is first and foremost not just to meet mission goals and objectives but also in convincing the learner that the material is without a doubt relevant and critical for them to accomplish.|
|People know what lawyers and accountants do and how to buy from them as providers of professional services. e-learning is a younger and far more misunderstood industry. The manifesto codifies what good practice looks like and I hope that we can build from this to giving learners great experiences that shift organisational performance.|
|I hope that the adoption of the manifesto will help realize the promise of eLearning as it was perceived originally by its earliest visionaries.
|Transform Learning Change Lives|
|This represents the key to effective learning experiences of any kind. I agree to do my best to never take shortcuts that will ignore these principles.|
|I endorse the manifesto in its entirety.|
|I endorse the Serious eLearning Manifesto and the supporting principles.|
|I commit to developing eLearning that falls in line with the Serious eLearning Manifesto. I also commit to encouraging others on my immediate team and in my organization to commit to these principles.|
|I endorse the principles of the manifesto and commit to using them in elearning development.|
|My Customer Service Enterprise Strategy L&D team has been talking about these topics on our own this year as we develop our roadmap for improving our processes. We had arrived at many of these same key principles and already committed to aligning with these ideas.|
|Being new to the field, this ties in with what I have been learning in grad school.|
|I support the initiative of the eLearning Manifesto!|
|I endorse the principles of the eLearning Manifesto and believe the importance of using these principles to ensure eLearning meets the amazing potential available for real learning to solve real problems.|
|I agree with the principles of eLearning Manifesto. I will strive to apply these principles to my work and to advocate them within my organization.|
|I endorse the manifesto and think I’ll edit it a tad…I always want to respect the learners first.|
|I heartily endorse the principles of the serious eLearning Manifesto.|
|This sums and organizes how to approach eLearning. I endorse it.|
|Bravo! Finally an ‘agile manifesto’ for the eLearning community. These principles will help all of us focus on performance rather than design ephemera…and stay relevant.
I wholeheartedly endorse all the principles.
|I endorse the manifesto.|
|These principles and guidelines are helpful to not only remind eLearning designers and developers of the important aspects of creating effective eLearning. It also helps us by providing support when we need to explain our new designs to clients.|
|I endorse the ideas and goals of the Serious eLearning Manifesto and will work towards those goals and ideals in my eLearning projects.|
|I endorse this manifesto as a positive approach and direction of developing and delivering elearning.|
|Making eLearning engaging and rich with content and practical application to the learner is key. The manifesto will make accountable to deliver great eLearning.|
|This is a great way to shake up the ranks|
|I agree with these values and will do my best to follow these principles.|
|The eLearning Manifesto represents a step forward for the field of eLearning. It accurately reflects the vision we, as eLearning developers, need to adopt in order to move away from ineffective practice and towards the realization of eLearning’s full potential.|
|Exquisitely concise and pragmatic! Implementing even a fraction of the ideas in the Manifesto will make a dramatic difference in the kind of eLearning coming into the world.|
|I endorse and will implement the principles of the manifesto in my work.|
|I heartily endorse this manifesto. It supports the research that is available and the 22 guiding principles will definitely lead us as practitioners to develop higher quality learning events.|
|I wholeheartedly agree with this manifesto!|
|I, Mathias Vermeulen, do solemnly swear that I will execute the eLearning Manifesto to the best of my ability!|
|There is way too much boring elearning. There is so much capability to make exciting and meaningful learning. It is critical for our industry to push for meaningful learning activities, improved tools for creating serious learning and provide learning opportunities for developers of elearning to improve the instructional design that backs up awesome elearning.|
|Performance is the key and doing is performance. The reality is that people generally need to learn in order to do, but they also learn best by doing. I endorse the manifesto as a crucial approach for e-learning to contribute effectively to performance. Maybe we should call it e-doing…|
|I’ve been frustrated with bad eLearning for years. If clients, stakeholders and subject matter experts agree to follow our lead and accept these principles we can finally improve performance. Furthermore, my hope is that the authoring tools we use adopt these principles in the development of their software.|
|Glad I got a chance to see the big kickoff (hangout) on the manifesto. Already live tweeted (@valarywithawhy)the event and ready to help spread the excitement I felt people had about making things better.|
|Put the talk into action. Get past operating the technology to focus on using the media to create meaningful experiences for the audience.|
|I’m a TV producer new to the eLearning industry and every single point you’ve made is exactly what we’ve been saying to our clients. It’s fantastic to see these values backed up by industry heavyweights who have done the background research to prove their points. The eLearning industry SO needs to be disrupted because so many content suppliers seem to have an attitude that says, "Hey, I know the courses we’re building are based on tech levels from the 70s but that’s what the buyers want. And we’re making pretty good dough, so ix-nay." Really? Thank you so much for calling out the complacency in the eLearning industry. Long live the Manifesto.|
|I endorse The Manifesto. It outlines the way we need to create elearning in order to be as effective as possible.|
|I endorse the Serious eLearning Manifesto.|
|I resonate with most, if not all, of these principles. And I will try to implement more of them as opportunities arise and my skill level and awareness increases.|
|The principles seem sound.|
|ttcInnovations is committed to begin implementing the 23 principles as a part of our quality review process of all elearning materials created by our company for our clients.|
|Superior effort, long overdue especially recognizing elearning has lost its way. I believe the ease of tools like Articulate have found a home in the executive suite as an inexpensive, just good enough nod at educating.
By standing forth with a set of principles there is now a set of ‘soft metrics’ against which serious corporate educators can use to benchmark courseware. And the likelihood that these principles will indeed lead to better performances when executed by innovators and early adopters will, hopefully convince the untutored that there is a solid methodology to excellence.
|We need a way to unite as an industry to influence the adoption of the manifesto. We must do, not talk. We must transform thinking, habits, expectations, production, and behavior in line with the manifesto. We must, somehow, get decision makers and learner "see the light" so we can live the manifesto. Reminds me of the Cluetrain Manifesto. Google it.|
|The eLearning Manifesto provides a solid foundation on which all eLearning content should be created.
If you’re wondering why your eLearning is not producing positive results – odds are you are not following the guiding principles in the Manifesto.
|I am a television and online video producer and new to the elearning world. My first task was to investigate current standards and what I found transported me twenty years into the past to the dawn of Power Point. The manifesto is clearly needed for learners, the end users, the audience, those that are here to be engaged by the content we design and create for them to improve their lives. Thank you for your dedication to a positive elearning experience and creating a manifesto that puts elearning on a new path to a bright and exciting future.|
|This is an important project in helping to bring awareness and a set of values and principles to the often lackluster and boring world of eLearning…|
|The Supporting Principles of the Manifesto both guide and challenge us to produce more engaging and effective elearning. We should constantly aim to apply the Principles to achieve increasingly higher quality elearning.|
|Today we focus so much on delivering e-learning in an efficient, cost effective way. The focus is on learning, not on performance. Most of the e-learning is a look alike of classroom training. Deep change is necessary and focus on performance. So we need micro learning (use the standards of Ruth Clark to avoid cognitieve overload) and performance support and in addition social learning. So 70:20:10 with a performance perspective.|
|I endorse the principles detailed in this manifesto. I believe that, when implemented, these principles will lead to improved workforce engagement and performance.|
|I support the Serious eLearning Manifesto.|
|I am glad to endorse the Manifesto and would like to contribute in fine-tuning its items 14 and 21.|
|I believe in the principles of the eLearning Manifesto. I have witnessed how implementation of these principles leads to performance change of employees in organizations.|
|I vow to hold the Serious eLearning Manifesto as the new standard for all eLearning modules produced by our eLearning team. We are committed to interactive, real life scenarios and simulations for improved performance on the job. Now, the Manifesto will help us make our design and development more powerful in our workplace!
|I endorse the eLearning Manifesto.|
|It is tremendous that four great practitioners took time to formulate these principles and best practices! In addition, the list of Trustees is a "Who’s Who" of eLearning. This initiative will be a great boon to set standards of quality in our field!|
|The Serious eLearning Manifesto says in writing what we’ve all been whispering to our industry peers for years: eLearning is broken! We’ve had the awareness, knowledge, and skills to fix it for some time, but this coordinated effort and the Manifesto’s principles will boost our desire to act through shared accountability and best practice.|
|I have longed to see some recognition of the sorry state of current eLearning. Certainly there are shining examples of what it can be, but so many examples exist that illustrate how utterly woeful the norm has become. We can do better in meeting the promise that online technology presents us with.
The Principles associated with the eLearning Manifesto reflect what we need to start implementing if eLearning is to reach it’s potential.
Performance, not content; context, not generic; and consequences, not canned feedback are some of the principles we need to start incorporating as best we can within the constraints imposed in work and education.
I wholeheartedly endorse this effort for the sake of this profession.
