Manifesto Signatories 4/2/2014

Lisa Robinson
This makes so much sense for so many reasons.  What it boils down to is that ineffective eLearning is a waste of time and other resources for everyone involved.  Let’s do this the right way!
Cheryl Clemons
These are sound principles, which I support and endorse. One of the reasons e-learning hasn’t progressed to regularly uphold these principles is so much of it lives behind the corporate firewall. Overall, e-learning hasn’t had the same level of scrutiny, peer review and competitive pressure to innovate as other web-based disciplines. However, ultimately users are discerning and their increasing expectations of relevant, value-based digital learning experiences will raise standards when organisations and designers stop, consult and listen. The Serious eLearning Manifesto is a good thing.
Cordell Jones

I endorse this manifesto.
Mark Jenkins

I highly endorse all of the manifesto. I promote it every chance I get. I have found very useful to let people know what page I am on at the start of a project. It has already has changed the ways some people think and has affected the design, development and implementation of learning and performance support solutions. Thank you.
Kimberly Patterson

I fully endorse the standards set by the Serious eLearning Manifesto and will use them as a guide in developing a new type of needed training for the tourism and hospitality industries.

The manifesto is a good blue print for ensuring quality e-learning. It has my endorsement.

To ensure its implementation, I believe it requires the commitment of e-learning designers along with the support of course stakeholders and learning & development management. 

Nick Stanziani
Duane Morris LLP
Too often we see organizations create eLearning or post a catalog full of off-the-shelf eLearning modules just to tick the "we have eLearning" checkbox. This neither benefits the organization or the learners.

We owe it to our learners, our organization, and to ourselves as instructors to provide a true learning experience, impart actionable knowledge the benefits both the organization and the learners.

This eLearning Manifesto greatly needed and long overdue.

I know I will do my best to use the principles of the manifesto as a guide and as a ruler against which I will gauge my "serious learning" initiatives.

Dennis D Knepper
PA Dept of Transportation
It’s time to get away from eLearning that is nothing more than fancy slides with endless bullet points, where employees are mandated to sit through all of them and take a simple quiz at the end, and then say that training has taken place, all the while wondering why performance remains unchanged. Imagine watching a Hollywood movie that was nothing more than bullet-pointed slides with a slow soundtrack. Yet, that is what most of our WBT’s are. Time to change!
Derek Rohde

The Serious eLearning Manifesto’s principles can be summarized in one word: AUTHENTIC.

Authentic and true to the learners’ needs.

Authentic and true to the problem at hand (whether the solution really is training or not).

Authentic to meaningful principles and practices of Instructional Design!

The Serious eLearning Manifesto is to be taken SERIOUSly before, during, and after every serious learning professional’s project!

May the eLearning force be with you!
