From the Inside Flap
A who s who of the learning profession brilliantly comes together to deliver a practical manifesto that changes the way you think about how learning actually happens.
Dan Pontefract, Head of Learning & Collaboration, Telus and author of Flat Army
If you need to get up to speed in all facets of eLearning, this is the book for you. Traditional, mobile, social, gamed, and properly managed: The Really Useful eLearning Instruction Manual brings all the important stuff together in one slim volume. You can read it on a two–hour flight and you probably should.
Jay Cross, CEO and Chief Unlearning Officer, Internet Time Alliance
The Really Useful eLearning Instruction Manual s list of 12 contributory authors reads like a who s who of movers and shakers in the field from both sides of the Atlantic, and this means it is compulsive and compulsory reading. It contains many compelling arguments; some contradictory perspectives; and lots and lots of good, practical ideas. It packs a lot into 232 pages. This book belongs on your shelf (or iPad). You will come back to it again and again.

From the Back Cover
More and more people want to use technology to enhance learning, but the problem is that it can at first seem bewildering. The elearning industry is riddled with acronyms and jargon and prone to leaping onto every passing technology bandwagon. This makes it difficult for those new to the industry to get their bearings. Even for those highly experienced in one facet of elearning, exploring new areas can be challenging. This book is designed to help.
Whether you want to get started with different forms of elearning, win over business leaders, or facilitate live online training, there are plenty of practical tips, hints and guidance to help you explore new areas of elearning whilst avoiding some of the common pitfalls.
With the hard–won wisdom and experience of world–leading experts in all aspects of elearning, The Really Useful eLearning Instruction Manual will give you a broad base of knowledge and the tools you need to navigate the elearning terrain.
Featuring contributions from Clive Shepherd, Laura Overton, Jane Bozarth, Lars Hyland, Julie Wedgwood, Jane Hart, Colin Steed, Clark Quinn, Ben Betts and Charles Jennings.

One reviewer commented that they felt the authors were plugging themselves too much with links to their websites and own books etc. I disagree, the quality of what they write and the fact you can get access to the information and experience they have is priceless. The links they provide - even if to their own websites etc - are very useful in their own right.
I am from a training background, but without a mass of experience in e learning, so by buying and reading this book you save yourself hours and hours of learning by experience or trying to root information out from the internet.
Worth every penny!
What it ISN'T, is a technical instruction manual. You won't find much in the way of specs and step-by-step advice in here (and there are plenty of other books / sites for that kind of thing, anyway). Rather, it's a step back from that, and a guided walk through the theory, thinking and planning behind the technology. It's a step that's often missed out in my experience of eLearning (10+ years), and the book is arranged to give you a brief dip into all the planning topics you'll need to found the later 'nitty gritty' work on.
The best thing about the book is that the authors of its short chapters write with a good dose of realism. You won't be sold the digital vision as a panacea for all teaching and learning's ills. Roles are changing, but not being replaced, and digital is only half the story. Instead, you have a VERY practical introduction to the topics, with more than enough nods to the parts eLearning can't yet (or shouldn't try to) reach.
I particularly enjoyed the section on game-based learning - typical of the rest of the book in that it was theory-grounded, well-referenced, and bang up-to-date in terms of the devices and platforms it assumed the reader had in mind.
