Michelle Vilamaa
Alabama Department of Mental Health
I am committed to working towards excellence in development of e-learning and blended learning materials. I will strive to continue expanding my knowledge of best practices and teaching techniques.
Monica Sulecio de Alvarez
Independent eLearning Consultant
I truly believe in learning experiences that are meaningful and authentic to help learners build competencies for real life. I understand the role of the distance learning teacher as a partner in the learning process who provides support, illuminates the paths that learners walk, mediates their discoveries and gives meaning to interaction in learning communities. The manifesto makes explicit what elearning really is.
Hassan Backeer
Institute of Banking Studies
I Hassan Backeer, being an elearning expert with a 16 years experience in the field, having seen both successes and failures of elearning, unfortunately more failures than successes, I fully endorse the "Serious Elearning Manifesto" and totally agree to the approach suggested by it. Also, I would like to note that I am currently conducting my own private research on elearning failure, as part of my work for my Doctorate Program, during which I will use the manifesto as a core item.

Ken Hubbell
Ingersoll Rand plc
This manifestor serves as the baseline for creating and evaluating modern learning. While technology provides the infrastructure for delivery, it is important to note the manifesto also supports the absence of technology recognizing that a sometimes a page turner really is just a pages turner. Likewise, the understanding that without assessment and metrics, the learner is deprived a feedback mechanism important to both the individual and the institution. Let this manifesto become the scaffold for teaching instructional design and guide us to the next generation of learning.
John Ellison
