Via James Farmer comes the polo parable from David Wiley. This is a light-hearted story which will ring true for many of us in the elearning sector. Without giving it all away, the moral of the story is that "putting classroom training online" is like turning a water polo team into a polo team.
For example, the water polo coach is told by the athletic director, "Do all the things you did before, just do them on horseback instead of in a pool." Sound familiar?
