Security, low-band-width and motivation are major challenges in e-Learning development in public and private sectors. e-Learning means e-boring--at least, many users of page-turning e-learning packages complain. Many e-learning experts claim that simulation learning is the way to overcome e-boring because it is engaging and interactive. But how do you do so, especially with a limited technology bandwidth? This session presents the case study of a simulation training course designed by the Hong Kong Police Force (HKPF), and explains how they overcame the problems of low bandwidth to develop an engaging e-learning program that includes reality simulation, interactive video, elements of online games and, most importantly, results in learning that "sticks". The presentation will also demonstrate the application of ���Pick and Go��� concept in delivery of small learning objects that meet users��� training need.
