Back to Basics
Elearning is a term used to describe "electronic learning" and typically this means using a computer to deliver part, or all of a course whether it's in a school, part of your business training or a full distance learning course. There are various benefits to e-learning, whether it's to use it on its own, or to enhance your existing in house face-to-face training. Here are a few examples of the benefits:
By cutting the time taken from the office, the travelling time and removing various material costs. It helps you save money and increase workplace productivity, your staff will be happier and more focused.
Many face to face courses only operate within normal office hours. By allowing staff to complete the course when and where they like, you can make sure disruptions to your busy working schedule are minimised. This also means that your staff will be happier because they don't need to travel to specific training centres, and if they have important work to catch up on mandatory training can be done outside of office hours in exchange for lieu time.
Perhaps the most important aspect of using computers for training is that it comes with a well implemented Learning Management System (LMS) makes it easy to track and prove progress for your staff and learners.
Not everybody feels comfortable learning in a large group, especially if they find something hard to understand that co-workers have no problem with. E-learning allows each individual to tackle the subject at their own pace, with interactive tasks being set in place to ensure a thorough understanding throughout each module.
E-learning gives you the ability to quickly create and communicate new policies and training. By using our Authoring Tool and our Learning Management System you’ll be able to roll-out to large audiences cost-effectively.
E-learning offers the ability to achieve high levels of coverage among your target audience and ensures the message communicated is consistent. This means all learners get the same training.
Blended learning results in higher knowledge retention rate as it appeals to a wider range of learning styles. There’s also the added ability to refresh or update coursework whenever it’s needed and learn at a pace that suits your learners.
It reduces time away from the workplace, cuts down on expensive travel and reduces the need for costly classroom-based training.
Using our Learning Management System, tracking Learner progress is a breeze and reporting on activity is a button press away.
By delivering your training online and testing your staff through online quizzes you’re providing alternatives to paper-based forms of learning and testing.
E-learning can give staff the freedom to learn when and where they want, and at their own pace. You can train staff who would usually be in remote locations and have trouble getting to and from classroom training venues.
