    Thanks Robert for your comment. To me, using rapid elearning tools to build elearning content is like using power tools to build a house. It is indeed faster that using traditional hand tools but it does not change the process: you need a plan and you need to meet certain standards (e.g. walls must be built before the roof)

    If anyone thinks that using rapid elearning tools changes the process in any ways, they are doomed for failure. Whatever the tool, proper analysis and design must be performed before any content is built. An of course, one tool cannot do everything, learning professional must choose the appropriate tool to build their content, otherwise it might just not work.

    Thank you Guy for the discussion of rapid e-learning. While I agree with you, I might hesitate to juxtapose rapid learning strategies with the preferences of learning professionals. Though learning pros should want to create programs within the traditional ISD model that you describe, they often seem to be the most vocal advocates rapid e-learning! I sometimes wonder why they don't call themselves code developers rather than learning pros, since their focus seems to be 80% on tools and 20% on teaching.

    Excllent! From Dr. Richard E. Clark: Studies that make heavy use of self-report strategies for capturing the knowledge of subject-matter experts through task analysis and think aloud protocols (e.g. Davison et. al. 1997) are most likely flawed because once cognitive processes are automated they are no longer available for conscious monitoring and so cannot be accurately and completely described during a task analysis or think aloud protocol (Wheatley & Wegner, 2001; Feldon, In Press).
