Breakthrough elearning solutions are earning a seal of approval for organizations looking to develop best-in-class training for both new hires and current employees. Leading organizations are stepping away from old school learning strategies that don’t maximize learning effectiveness, and instead adopting elearning into their training process. Why the shift?
