A commitment to good e-learning and good use of e-learning is so important to our success and credibility as learning professionals. We need to be focused on performance — helping people do their jobs better to they and their employers are more successful — and on learners. It’s not about making our jobs as instructional designers or instructors easier. It’s about making learners more successful. And sometimes that doesn’t include formal training. That’s OK. When is use our training tools well everyone benefits.

Learning is a path that makes us better people and better professionals. Therefore, it should be meaningful, focused on the learners, and on what helps them achieve a better performance. Unfortunately, most learning experiences are far from it, and this is why we need to change. This is why we need to hold true to the principles of this manifesto!
