I have been delivering a lot of face to face training this week; and I am realising that for some people e-Learning may never work. I met a woman in one of my classes this week. This woman needed to challenge and query the trainer (me). She said she had a block with maths/formulas (in Excel); the text books and online explanations just didn't "do it for her". I suspect she also had a block with online learning fullstop and her aggression masked her lack of success with understanding this part of the application.

It would be interesting to scope an e-Learning program for Excel and see if it meets the needs of learners with vastly different learning styles.

P.S. Is there a spell checker with blogger???
