Redefining elearning

Spurred on by one of those emails that "does the rounds" I tried to come up with a few alternative definitions for aspects of our business. The rules are add, take away or change one letter.

SCORN compliant
what some rapid elearning has to be to get past militant LMS managers.

a point of view, especially prevalent in sales people, pushers of LMSs and IT folk that online training is the panacea for all ills.

rabid elearning
too much course based elearning written in PowerPoint causes learners to foam at the mouth and bite people.

how a poorly designed user interface can short circuit a user's brain.

a click-here, do-this activity that causes learners to respond in ways not anticipated - like throw their mouse away in frustration.

and here's one for devotees of ILT:

SCONE compliant
what a classroom course must be to make way for a really satisfying afternoon snack.
