3 ways Outsourcing Elearning Development can reduce training costs

Many organizations need help building effective elearning for their people so they turn to elearning development agencies (like Learnkit) to outsource elearning production. While these organizations need the expertise of an agency to build training, many of them get an initial sticker shock when discussing the price of outsourcing elearning.

While outsourcing can be costly, there are a number of benefits that working with an elearning development agency can provide. A big one that many organizations overlook is the long terms savings it can offer.

Here are 3 ways outsourcing elearning development can help reduce costs:

Reduce costs associated with hiring an extensive in-house team

Hiring an elearning development agency allows you to drive down the costs associated with hiring an extensive in-house team. Tap into expert elearning development specialists without the associated costs of commitment, recruiting time, training time, vacation and benefits. Hiring an elearning development agency allows you to work with a group of experts that act as an extension of your in-house training team.

Create Scalable, On-demand Solutions

By outsourcing your elearning, you can create scalable solutions on demand. Partnering with an elearning development agency allows you to spend money when it is needed to ramp up your team quickly, or slow down and put projects on hold without additional costs.

Maximize the value of your investment

Outsourcing your elearning to an agency allows you to work one on one with experts in the field. This ensures that you’re creating the highest quality elearning that both engages and excites your learners. Delivering quality training is crucial for maximizing training time and seeing the return on investment of training initiatives.

Outsourcing elearning is a big decision for any company. When done correctly, it can bring a ton of value to your organization and in the long term provide a positive return on investment.

    When using an LMS with a decent library of courses, sometimes you can use existing solution instead of outsourcing its development, which can be even more cost effective!

  • Hi Mitchelle,

    I agree with you that for a business, outsourcing elearning is a major decision. But, it’s time that companies grab this opportunity because elearning will allow them to grow and boost their RoI. Nowadays, even employees are keen to associate with those businesses that offer them sufficient growth opportunities professionally.

    In a situation like this, companies should choose the elearning path. In the absence of sufficient funds, they can outsource their training needs to a vendor but I personally favor of creating training content in-house. The reason is simple. No two business is same and should use the same training content despite from the same domain. Also, when the training content is built in-house, it is easier to implement necessary changes as and when needed.

    According to me, a business should use an elearning tool to create its own customized training content.
