Editor's note
How do you devise an E-Learning Strategy?

Sometimes controversial, sometimes combative but with a liberal
dose of common sense, Godfrey Parkin's column this week takes a
look at how to devise an e-learning strategy. Godfrey believes
that companies who fail to have a vision which encompasses an e-
learning focus leave themselves very exposed.

So how do you find your way through the techno-hype to make
sound strategic e-learning decisions? To give your response to
Godfrey's article, click on "add comments to this article" at
the end of the piece.

Kind regards
