Free e-learning resource kit includes planning workbook, ROI calculator,

WEST DES MOINES, IA, January 10, 2001- “The E-Learning Starter Kit was developed in response to the confusion and uncertainty we’ve seen in the
online learning marketplace,” explains Frank Russell, president of
e-learning systems provider GeoLearning, Inc. “With well over 100 learning
management system providers to choose from and literally thousands of online
courses available,’Where do I start?’ is a question we hear quite frequently
from clients and partners.
With that exact question in mind, GeoLearning developed the E-Learning
Starter Kit, a comprehensive resource package indentifying the key pieces of
information that can mean the difference between e-learning success and
failure. “Whether you’re new to e-learning, have some experience, or
consider yourself an e-learning expert, the materials included in the
E-Learning Starter Kit will help get you started down the road to a
successful e-learning launch,” promises Russell.
Human resource executives, training managers and others charged with
implementing e-learning in their organizations can request a free E-Learning

The cornerstone of The Kit is The E-Learning Workbook. Subtitled “25
Questions to a Successful E-Learning System Launch,” the workbook is a
series of questions that get organizations thinking about the major
decisions that need to be made prior to implementing an e-learning system.
“By helping organizations define the objectives, strategies, resources,
functionality and technical aspects of their project, the workbook will
naturally lead to the development of a requirements document,” explains
Russell. “From there, with the end-result clearly defined, they can begin to
