Richard Cross
The world is constantly in search of panaceas, easy solutions to the myriad of complex problems we are presented with. Given that complexity is not going to disappear any time soon, as responsible providers of learning solutions, we should be committed to the avoidance of the risk of offering well-intentioned but wasteful panaceas. This is why the Serious eLearning Manifesto matters. It outlines for us some of the basic shortcuts, lazy practices, or over-promising approaches that masquerade as quality learning experiences. Buyers and providers alike will do well to read the manifesto, understand what it is saying and take it into account. At Senscia, we stand by the manifesto and commit to delivering it in everything we do for our clients and colleagues.
Anshuman Gautam

Endorsement of the Manifesto: The world today has more knowledge than ever before, but not everyone can benefit from it. Quality education is the foundation of sustainable development.

Being in this domain for two decades, I fully endorse this manifesto.

Technology has the potential to support learning and development like never before in history, but it isn’t an end in itself. The eLearning Manifesto calls out principles that underlie the process of learning, not just “e”. When incorporated into performance design and thoughtfully combined with supporting technologies, the promise and power of eLearning can be realized.
Gary DePaul

As of March 2019, I’m aware of one Fortune 50 company that has regressed in how they leverage eLearning. Today, organizations should dedicate substantial time studying the eLearning Manifesto and the twenty-two supporting principles and determine how they can apply these to strengthen their learning strategy and their eLearning program.

The Manifesto We believe that learning technology offers the possibility for creating uniquely valuable learning experiences. We also believe, with a sense of sadness and profound frustration, that most elearning fails to live up to its promise. We further believe that current trends evoke a future of only negligible improvement in elearning design—unless something radical is done to bend the curve. Finally, we have concluded that in order to elevate elearning to the height of its promise, we need to begin with a personal commitment to a new set of standards. Through continuous assessment of learner performance, the elearning experience can optimize use of the learner’s time, individualize the experience for full engagement, address needs, optimize practice, and prepare for transfer of learning to performance proficiency. Through our work in developing elearning experiences and helping others do the same, we believe that we need to go beyond typical elearning to the values and characteristics of Serious eLearning:

We’ve all been distracted by the entertainment value of e-learning, and we’ve left the learners in the dust as a result. If we aren’t focused on the learner experience, how can we call ourselves instructional designers?
Jason Watson
I am focused on creating learner-centered content that embodies the design guidelines and principles that are laid out here. I am focused on making these the floor of my lessons, incorporating them as is appropriate for each lesson I create and project I take on. With the goal of naturally adding them as I design without too much effort.

Considero que el manifiesto correspondiente es el mas adecuado ya que se encargan de romper los esquemas de alguna forma en cuanto el aprendizaje lo mas valioso que puedo destacar es el hecho de que se encargan de ir a la practica directamente sin necesidad de que el alumno tenga que finalizar su formación para que dicha forma sus conocimientos sean totalmente fortalecidos de principio a fin. Considero que de igual forma lo que quieren es hacer personas mas auto suficientes con ciertas bases para que puedan alcanzar el éxito.
