Abstract

This chapter looks at the potential to exploit existing technology enhanced learning (TEL) authoring tools to provide customised learning solutions that address both businesses’ needs and employees learning requirements. It examines the feasibility of integrating training needs analysis into existing authoring tools to automate customisation. The chapter outlines a framework for such using best practices in the technology enhanced learning field such as sound instructional design theories, standard compliant metadata sets, and LO granularity while exploiting well established TEL authoring models. The chapter also highlights how this framework was implemented in practice in the form of an electronic tool that ties closely with existing learning content management systems.
