Abstract

In the early days of eLearning, there was an awful lot of hype about expected results from eLearning initiatives. One of the biggest was about how much money organizations could save through eLearning. ELearning provides increased opportunities for delivering and taking part in learning, but building and delivering eLearning is typically not as inexpensive as we were once promised. Here are some of the more common costs associated with eLearning: Content development, Course design and development, Project management processes and tools, Authoring and multimedia development tools, Infrastructure, including Learning Management Systems. Although, better training may drive improved performance, many organizations still find themselves needing to reduce the costs of designing, building, and delivering eLearning. The main objective of this paper is discovering how eLearning could cut down the cost for organizations benefiting from Guild's survey.
