E-LEARNING 2 - Report

People that read the Guild’s 360° Reports on emerging technologies often express the following fears:
  1. The emerging technology will obsolesce what they do now;
  2. The emerging technology will be difficult to learn;
  3. It will be difficult to convince colleagues and management that they should embrace the emerging technology; and,
  4. Not embracing the technology will lead to certain doom.
Our comprehensive research and analysis from industry experts should allay concerns over the first three items. Indeed, the use of traditional classroom instruction is actually *up* from a year ago, so e-Learning 2.0 approaches are not going to replace instructor-lead training or e-Learning 1.0 approaches anytime soon. As for the fourth item, while the language may be somewhat extreme our research shows that organizations that ignore incorporating Web 2.0 approaches for their learning initiatives may be doing so at their own peril (at least according to Guild members’ survey results).

Comprehensive Survey Results – And Answers!

With dedicated e-Learning 2.0 survey data from 1,160 Guild members and learning modality preferences from nearly 3,000 members, Guild Research is able to definitively answer the following questions
  • Which approaches to learning are growing and which are receding?
  • Are younger workers in fact more adept at Web 2.0 tools and technologies and will they demand these approaches be incorporated into learning and performance support?
  • Do members that have implemented e-Learning 2.0 approaches report strong results?
  • What do Guild members who have implemented e-Learning 2.0 approaches do to ensure success within their organizations?
  • How do results in Europe and Asia differ from those in the U.S. and Canada?
  • Are your needs and priorities in alignment with your peers that work in similar organizations

The 2010 Salary and Compensation Report - United States

Total United States compensation and salaries in the e-Learning field are trending upwards. After a small downward dip in 2008, overall compensation is back on the rise. That earlier downward trend correlated well to the economic downturn, but it mainly consisted of a decrease in full-time contractor pay during that turbulent time. Regular full-time employee pay in e-Learning remained relatively steady during the economic crisis, and in fact, even climbed slightly.

In the year leading up to January 2010, the average U.S. e-Learning salary was $79,252. In addition to salary, the average additional compensation, including tuition, bonuses, and continuing education spending, was $7,541 for an average total compensation of$86,793.

Each year, The eLearning Guild publishes a Salary and Compensation Report reflecting the most current data reported directly from members. The data in this report represents the information from over 6,000 members as of January 2010. In addition, since we have collected data for several years now and can show historical patterns, we are pleased to publish overall compensation trend data for the first time.
