It might seem that converting classroom training to e-learning is quite an easy task. It is often assumed that as most of the subject matter already exists, you only have to put it in an authoring tool, publish it to a compatible format and upload it online. However, it’s not that easy. Converting classroom content to the online format involves various considerations such as format of the course, technology support, and a resource person. Failure in meeting the desired outcome results not just loss of time and money, but also ineffective training. So, before starting on with the conversion process, there are a few questions to be answered.
E-learning has proved to be quite cost-effective for organizations and easily accessible for learners, compared to traditional training methods1. So, many organizations have been embracing e-learning as one of the methods to train their employees.
To increase the productivity of their people, organizations must improve training efficiencies and provide knowledge support at the point of need. This can be done very effectively by moving your instructor-led training materials online. But, how can you convince your boss of the necessity to implement e-learning? Making a business case will surely help you.
