It’s pretty hard to make that case when you’re steeped in enterprise learning, but I think it’s true: “CBE is indeed a niche market growing much more slowly that many had hoped or predicted.” There are reasons for that. Alex Usher touches on the core issue: “we are having trouble figuring out skills and competencies outside narrow professional frameworks?” Even proponents are taking it slow. Here’s Brightspace’s John Baker: “we look at it as one component of the learning experience,” Baker said. “ What we’ re hoping is you’ ll see more and more courses, programs, universities and colleges making a complete transition to that model of learning. But we recognize that that transformation takes time.” See also: Deconstructing CBE. Image: CompetencyWorks.
