E-Learning

Have any of you tried to implement e-learning or Computer-Aided Teaching (Web based or companywide intranet based or standalone CBTs etc) for Quality Topics like SPC, MSA, FMEA, DOE, Calibration, GD&T & so on?

I know there are a whole lot of web based training modules available. What I want to find out is how many of you actively use / have used these techniques in your organizations? Were these initiative successful? If not, why not? What should be the attributes of a good e-learning program / CBT for Quality Technology?

Thanx.

In a way, yes

In a limited way I have...

I frequently use Powerpoint with a large screen. The actual teaching is done in a classroom, but where we used to dish out a pile of paper I just tell people that the notes I used can be found on our intranet.

This seems to work pretty well. ( At least a lot better than the old piles of paper that always seem to clog up offices or waste bins).

It's easy to set up a link to a powerpoint file or convert it to HTML.

Proper E-learning...? I've seen a rather lame attempt here so far: A very "flashy" application designed to teach us about the company. Well, it was flashy, but they forgot to put some good content in it... Result? Boooooring...

I took the liberty of expanding the options a bit. In part because there was no way for me to view the poll results until I voted and there was no option for me! :thedeal:
If anyone wants to change their vote, let me know - I can change the numbers.

No problem. I've posted enough polls now to have been beaten up numerous times for 'poor design'. Once you post a few you'll see 'failure modes' in your design early. My first polls were impulse polls (Hey - This is a neat feature - Let's try it out!) and I did a very poor job at designing them. But then again, this is all in unscientific fun, right? :thedeal:
I DO like the poll feature of this software. I think it's pretty neat.

I don't believe in informal or formal training. I believe that a person learns what is needed for his or her proffesion, reading, practice, experience, practice.

When I took a lead internal auditor class I was asking questions that could not be answered. Which goes to the hypothesis that you don't ask a question unless you know the answer.

I've seen a few people come out of the education system that had great degree work but diddddddn't know how to fill out an SPC chart and interpret it let alone make a decision on it.

Am I against education? No No No, but a grade school education is worth a four year degree these days!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, still pessimistic!!!

Surely You Jest!

> I don't believe in informal or formal training.

As far as I can tell you're just saying all you believe in is On The Job training and 'life experience', Al. You may not like the word training, but it's the same thing.

In the same vein, I've seen people who didn't have the benefit of a higher education system who couldn't fill out an SPC chart or knew anything else about SPC. What's your point?

> a grade school education is worth a four year degree these
> days

Surely you jest...

I do believe some sort of a formal and standard training / education has to be provided for every type of job in order to prepare the basics which can later be applied 'on the job'.

It is difficult to judge anything from just 14 votes (as of now), but I was expecting a much better acceptance of Computer-Aided-Learing.

Any reasons why it is not done?

I have to qualify my response that we use all three :OJT, classroom, and e-learning....

We primarily use OJT. We use videotapes for many other training needs. I have held classroom training for QMS topics. And fairly recently I put a "training" section into our network qms that has powerpoint presentations, FAQ's, Tips for how to prepare and respond for audits, etc. When we go to a web-based QMS then we will add learning modules and tests.

I know this is not exactly what you're looking for when you talk about E-learning and the things that are taught, so thought I should clarify....

Lucinda, thanx for the reply.

It appears that e-learning is understood mainly as Web-based learning, whereas what I actually intended was to find out about general use of computers - right from PPT slide shows, interactive multimedia, simulators upto intranet/network based & web-based training modules and Knowledge Management Systems etc etc. - in teaching Quality related topics. I believe the trainees would include operators, engineers and managers.
