eLearning: Your #1 Virtual Training Solution
The Coronavirus is presenting new and unique challenges at work. For instance, that once dreaded in-person training is now a virtual training. But how do you effectively transition live instruction to a virtual setting? And how can you guarantee that your trainees are learning?
eLearning is a broad term for any training, learning, and education delivered online via digital resources.
More specifically though, eLearning can be delivered through a learning management system (LMS), providing oversight to see who has completed what courses and with what scores. There are hundreds of LMS software options to choose from, such as our very own clients Blackboard and Workday.
Why choose eLearning over virtual training?
Learner accountability: The difference between any standard virtual learning course and an eLearning course is that eLearning holds the learner accountable. The technology tracks and records the learners’ time and scores, ensuring that users are actively engaged and learning. Conversely, with a video or standard PowerPoint file, there is no way of telling if the end-user viewed and/or retained the content.
Effectiveness: With features such as quizzes and scoring, click-through interaction, and dialog simulation, eLearning is an effective tool for conveying information in an engaging way. This is especially important now given that we all have more distractions at home (think: kids, pets, chores, etc.) than we normally would in the office.
Cost savings: eLearning is a great investment as it reduces money spent on travel & logistics while providing opportunities for further reach (great for large companies with employees in multiple locations).
Time savings: Similar to cost savings, eLearning is the most time-efficient way to train. Not only does it save time on your end by eliminating travel and prep time, but it is also available on-demand so that the learner can fit lessons easily around their own schedule.
What do people use eLearning for?
