According to Clive Shepherd, e-learning director at The Institute of IT Training (IITT), trainers need to adhere to some principles to be both worthwhile and successful in the business climate. First, they must speak the language of business, rather than their own, often obscure, jargon. Second, they must be flexible in order to meet the growing need for learning materials developed for smaller audiences within shorter time spans. Third, they should be careful not to let technology 'happen' to them, but develop their knowledge and experience of all learning-delivery methods. Fourth, they must encourage people to take responsibility for their own learning.
