ABSTRACT
The article discusses about e-learning skills. In the past few years, the author has spoken about e-learning to a great many trainers, many of whom are extremely resistant to the idea and believe it to be the work of the devil. The first step is to put e-learning in its place, as just another channel for communication with learners, and one that will not devalue their skills. That's important, but it's not what the author want to focus on today. What clinches the commitment of trainers to the idea of e-learning is that they can do it for themselves. The author has contributed a great deal of his time to the creation of training programmes for e-learning professionals. They need committed professionals to tackle large- scale development projects and implementations. However, that still leaves masses of room for the professional trainer who, by comparison, would still be regarded as an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to e-learning. Most trainers will, with a little training, feel comfortable running live sessions in a virtual classroom and providing support to learners engaged in longer online or blended learning programmes.
