Now-a-days many organizations, institutions and even universities are using e-learning because it is cost effective compared to traditional training. Most small and big enterprises have begun to see the benefits of moving from classroom training to online training. Training managers are recognizing the value of e-learning and adopting the same. Here are the top five reasons why organizations need to adopt eLearning.
1. It’s adaptable:
The major problem through DVDs and training materials is that once they are complete, they cannot be easily changed. If it is an online system, changes can be made easily with a few modifications. This will reduce the time required to finalize your training programs. It also makes editing existing courses easy, thereby minimizing the delay.
2. Training updates – Quick and Convenient:
Online training updates are simple and straight forward. If you would like to update your company’s policies and need to inform your employees, simply create an online module, and add it to the LMS and make it mandatory to go through the module.
3. Content deployment – Rapidly:
Online training can be delivered quickly, so that learners are able to access new information immediately. Physical training material required longer developmental time and employees cannot carry them along at all times. However, content available online can be access easily. All you need to do is upload your materials and offer employees the access to the information online.
4. Easy access:
The beauty of eLearning is that learners can access their training from any place, at any time. Especially if you are a training manager with a large group of employees, contract workers and shift timings you are going to find it is very difficult to train them all at the same time. Even when you arrange the training, someone may have a project deadline, some others may be ill and you may have to conduct a separate training session for them. As training managers if you arrange a training program globally then all the employees or contract workers can complete their training within the given time frame. Some learners wish to complete their training at home, eLearning makes this possible.
5. Engaging learners:
It is common knowledge that effective learner engagement is vital to the success of a training program. When there are more number of students in a class, some may not be able to actively participate in the learning process. This shortcoming can be overcome through e-learning. Online courses are self-paced and the learner can go through them as many times as he wants and learn the concepts thoroughly. Furthermore, we can make the course interesting by including animations, quizzes, and games.
So these are the top five reasons why training managers are adopting e-learning. What do you think?
