According to Patti Shank, rapid e-Learning is often a good place to begin when getting started with e-Learning. It leverages new tools, and typically lowers the time to completion and the cost of e-Learning development. Rapid approaches are also used by organizations that have been using e-Learning for years because they also have a need to get needed information and instruction out quickly and inexpensively.
