TrainingZONE Newswire - Issue 317
26 July 2004

1. Feature: Trends in E-Learning
2 Paul Kearns Explains "Why?"
3. The Way I See It... Training Departments and Internal Marketing
4. Case Study: Royal Mail's Home Computer Initiative
5. Research into Rejectors of Learning

Editor's note
It's an all-too common story: training departments, managers and
external consultants invest their time, money and expertise
crafting an e-learning solution that will address business needs.

The roll out comes and there's a less than enthusiastic response,
resulting in at best a loss of face in the training department at
worst a loss of revenue for the organisation.

This week Steve Dineen of fuel explains why internal marketing of
courses should be planned as carefully as the package itself.

Staying with the question why, in his latest Bitesize Guide, Paul
Kearns explains how, used wisely, this small word can get you all
the answers you need as a business partner.
