Before we switch over from instructor-led training to eLearning, we’ll first need to understand better why this shift is critical and how we can be effective in this new digital learning domain.
Reasons for Shifting From ILT to eLearning: eLearning is flexible, dynamic, and easy to tailor to fit your team size, content, demographics, delivery methods, etc. The content can be swiftly prepared, tested, and modified to suit the employees’ requirements. Employees can design their courses and learn at their own pace. They can also revisit difficult or complicated sections that require more time and effort to understand fully.
eLearning is anytime learning.
Employees can access the training programs from the comfort of home, a coffee shop, or even a shared workspace. These programs are device-agnostic. Employees can access at any time, day, or night, and reference course material whenever they need to. Ultimately, employees save time when training online. Frequently, eLearning condenses content in ways that offer more information in smaller windows of time, potentially saving upwards of forty to sixty percent of your employees’ training time. Compared to classroom training, this type of training cuts down on the costs of instructors, classrooms, infrastructure, supporting material, and travel times. This method is all-encompassing and reaches an expanded audience compared to the typical scope of classroom training. This method makes learning available to everyone without travel or budget constraints. eLearning students are less likely to get bored because they’re in control of their pace of learning. These programs are device independent and can fit into the learners’ style.
Learners can use desktops, surfaces, laptops, or even mobile phones to access digital training. Online courses are less cumbersome. They can be easily mixed and matched with other classes as required. The courses can be standalone or be a part of a more comprehensive program. Online courses are the most cost-effective way to reach broader audiences (barring the initial investment). In short, online courses are more engaging and provide a flexible learning experience that contributes value to the learner’s overall education.
