Marc My Words: The Three Laws of eLearning Failure

Marc Rosenberg, Learning Solutions Magazine, Dec 12, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Here are the three laws (quoted):



  • Great eLearning technology combined with bad content results in more efficiently delivered bad content.

  • eLearning that is compensation for bad documentation, tools, processes, or management will ultimately prove to be a waste of time and money.

  • When great eLearning comes up against a lousy learning culture, the culture wins every time.


Essentially they are restatements of one of the oldest laws of computing: garbage in, garbage out (GIGO).
