Today more and more educational institutions and businesses are adopting elearning. With the steady increase of affordable tech devices on the market and a growing demand for engaging learning experiences, moving to an online learning strategy is an easy decision that yields many benefits for organizations.
In traditional education, a teacher presents new learning materials in a physical classroom. All interactions, discussions and learning take place in-person. With e-learning, learners access educational content on computers, tablets, and/or smartphones using a number of interactive delivery methods.
Because elearning is accessed digitally, adopting an online learning strategy can greatly reduce the amount of time and money spent on traditional classroom training, providing benefits on both the organizational and people levels. Below we’ve put together a list of the top 4 benefits of adopting elearning in your organization:
One of the biggest advantages of e-learning is that it’s more cost-effective and scalable than traditional in-person learning. A digital approach to learning removes the burden of coordinating schedules, printing handbooks and the accommodation costs for trainers and trainees.
Learn whenever, wherever:
Technology plays a huge role in our lives. People are constantly connected and with new devices coming out everyday, staying connected is only getting easier! Adopting online learning in your organization, allows you to create material that can be accessed from computers, tablets and smartphones. This means that your learners can access learning materials at anytime in almost any location.
Adaptable to various Learning Styles:
People learn in different ways and at different speeds. An elearning program allows learners to control their pace and complete learning material at a level that they are comfortable with. Elearning gives users the ability to pause and repeat learning content whenever necessary.
Suitable for Millennials:
Online training appeals to Millennials and Generation Z. The use of features, like gamification and progress badges, provide rewarding and enticing learning experiences. By removing mundane seminars and PDF documents, your learners can better interact with your learning material.
