Top 35 Articles on eLearning Strategy

I’ve been recently working on lots of eLearning strategy consulting engagements and one of my colleagues asked me to provide a set of resources around this topic.  I went back and looked at what I had written before on eLearning Strategy and saw that I had said at the time:

I've spent several hours this morning trying to find good resources on eLearning Strategy development and particularly looking for examples to use in this post. I've really been striking out. I'm hoping that people will help out. 

This time I had better luck and also had great luck searching for elearning strategy articles on eLearning Learning under the topic pages: eLearning Strategies, Learning Strategies and Strategy.  Here’s some of what I found.  It’s still needs more, but represents a good starting point for review:

Tony -- Thanks so much for linking to the aLearning blog and my article in Learning Solutions e-mag! In my consulting and as I communicate with readers of my book (aLearning: A Trail Guide to Association eLearning), I realize that too often the focus goes immediately to tactics ("Which LMS should we use?" "How should we integrate social learning?" etc.) rather than starting with a strategy. Once a good strategy has been formulated -- even if it changes later (which it probably will) -- the tactics become much much easier to handle.

What do you think? Is this what you've found as well?

Thanks again!

Ellen - I've definitely found that most often we are focused on tactics. And that hurts when you try to answer the kinds of questions you just cited - Which LMS? Social Learning? - hard to answer these without knowing the broader strategy.

Of course, it's easier to say that we need a strategy than to be able to get the conversations and thinking to happen.
