Rapid Elearning, Workflow Learning

Rapid elearning and workflow learning are two concepts that have been getting enough attention over the last year to be classified as “trends”. I’m not entirely sure what to think about either. We have a unique problem in the learning/technology field of giving every small nuance in a concept a new name. Then we declare the old name/concept “dead” (almost as if we are constantly struggling to stay with the “in crowd”). Rapid elearning simply means “we have limited resources and time, how can we get this stuff done faster”…and workflow learning simply means “learning integrated (an abused word that can cause a rash to break out in some tech workers) as a vital business process…while still focusing on the needs of each individual worker”.
