A growing number of companies are discovering the benefits of online training. These organizations are part of a growing number of small and large businesses alike who have identified inconsistency and expense with their existing training solutions and found something more effective.
Management typically struggles with the logistics of training; who will perform it, when can we schedule it and what material will be taught. The increasing demand for accountability and assurance through worker competency programs has brought a new level to this method of training and it just isn’t quite so simple anymore.
If a business wants to stay competitive in today’s market they need to be prepared to manage the logistics of training and provide accountability and assurance. The manpower needed to manage this information can be devastating to a small company without the means to support additional staff and large companies are looking for ways to trim corners and simplify their internal processes.
Enter e-learning, an online training system that adapts to the specific needs of the client. Small companies needing to establish an orientation package and basic training for their workers are able to direct their workers to the e-learning portal where they can login and begin training. It’s consistent, effective, affordable, flexible, and convenient.
The large company with thousands of employees may be finding itself losing productivity due training commitments. They free up valuable time by out sourcing a portion of their training to various e-learning courses which are all managed by their own employee. They retain control over the e learning portal and can assign classes, monitor progress, print certificates and more.
E-learning courses give the student the flexibility to train in a comfortable environment, at their convenience and at the right pace for themselves. If they need to review a section which was unclear it is easy and there is no embarrassment or peer pressure to rush through the material. The courses are updated as new information becomes available, keeping them current and relevant. Students often experience increased retention because of visual, audio and interactive elements which are included to reinforce the message.
Students with little computer skill have success completing the e-learning courses since they simply need to point and click their way through the course materials. Course materials are usually a combination of reading, writing and graphics to allow for students with lower comprehension levels to understand and respond to the course material.
Whether your company is looking to save money, safe time, increase knowledge retention, or consistently train workers, by using an e-learning system the worker benefits too.
