Abstract

The evaluation of e-learning products requires a level of preparation, forethought, and skill to which most beginning evaluators are not accustomed. Like any other project management process, planning for an evaluation takes more than just technique and available skills; it requires understanding the client, their intentions, their political environment, as well as learning how to modify techniques and still deliver the required report. This presentation discusses lessons learned from an effectiveness evaluation project in order to better inform and prepare beginning evaluators of these aspects. Aspects such as proximity of team members, communication, political environment, insufficient stakeholder management, and the availability of the specified participants will be described. In addition, a beginning evaluator checklist will be shown which assists the evaluator in thinking about potential variables and processes.
