The Associated Press does some e-learning (and does it very well)

A fantastic article I just read on Yahoo News about the volcano in Iceland included the interactive multimedia piece you can click to below.

It’s clear. It anticipates and answers all of the major questions, including the “Why should I care?” question we all ask ourselves in the first three seconds. It tells the story in a logical way and features an easy to figure out user interface.

If you needed compliance reporting, you could use this as is — just add an invitation, tracking and a knowledge-check/acknowledgement question at the end. Though probably not intended to be, this is, I think, a great example of rapid e-learning at its very best.

Congratulations Associated Press.
