More nails in the coffin for courses
Pounding the drum we started here six weeks ago, more voices are coming out against courses.

Where the Course Paradigm Falls Down
Confession No. 2: I can't always know when I'll need to know something.
Confession No. 3: Learning is great, but I need to know how it fits into my job.
Confession No. 4: Sometimes learning objectives are just plain dumb. What I need is good reference material.
Confession No. 5: I'd like to show my boss that the training improved my performance.
The days may well be numbered for the course as the essential ?unit of learning?. The typical course is a shrink-wrapped offering where every learner receives the same training, regardless of the job that they do or the skills they already possess. As Clive Shepherd demonstrates is this article, what?s needed is a more targeted approach in which training is precisely tailored to job and individual needs. To make this possible we require a new paradigm for training delivery, one that is based on the intelligent deployment of learning objects.
