Abstract Rapid e-learning tools offer subject matter experts the opportunity to produce e-learning materials relatively quickly and cost-effectively, at least in the U.K. and U.S. But e-learning experts complain that rapid development tools only help amateurs turn out low-quality and poorly-designed materials that merely pay lip service to the ideals of instructional design. At a recent meeting of the eLearning Networkthe U.K.'s foremost professional association for users and developers of e-learningWilliam Ward, formerly of Cable & Wireless but now an independent consultant, examined the rise of rapid e-learning, which he dates to 2003, when tools such as Qarbon, Breeze, and ToolBook became available. Ward stated that these rapid application tools had changed not only buying patterns within the industry, but also ideas about why and where to use e-learning.
