ABSTRACT
E-learning companies and their customers face a similar dilemma. Creating an online course often needs the input of someone with rare or specialist knowledge, perhaps on a particular technology, on government legislation, or on tax issues. And, more often than not, customers will put forward their own internal specialists. In fact, creating an e-learning course requires a combination of skills and the subject-matter expert is just one person in a team made up of different strengths and disciplines. For that reason, the expert should not be the individual in charge of creating the coursework. Using experts is no longer simply an issue for e-learning content providers. Increasingly, corporate buyers are having to grapple with the challenge as more and more companies begin to create their own material in-house using self-authoring tools. INSET: Three secrets of success.
