Training materials created for elearning is designed to be delivered through computers and tablets. Courses can be easily customised to suit the needs of your business, but also the learning needs of employees such as Sliced Bread’s Teachers First education program which we developed for the Ministry of Education and Technical Education and is now part of the Egyptian Learning Society Program to support Education 2.0 Strategy.
It’s no secret that people have different ways of learning. Some employees learn better though gamification whilst others will retain information better by completing an evaluation exercise.
For example, the Learning Management System we developed for Risk Advisory incorporated 3D animation with a voiceover. The course records the progress of each delegate so that progress and results can be assessed and the appropriate feedback given to trainees.
The ability to personalise learning experiences for individuals makes it easier for trainers to assess which training methods employees respond to the most. This gives companies and advantage moving forward.
Personal elearning environments are supportive of lifelong learning and can speed up the learning curve of employees far quicker than traditional in-person training.
The time saved training individuals can be spent putting the knowledge and skills into practice and thus enabling new starters to contribute to the productivity of the business.
Elearning is less expensive than most traditional training methods. It’s also scalable thus enabling relevant content to be rolled out across various departments.
A report investigating the Value of Training published by IBM found online training can positively impact employee retention rates and save recruitment costs. The company also reveals they were able to deliver five times as much training for a third of the cost – a saving of US$200 million.
IBM is not alone in championing online learning. The benefits elearning offers have prompted a reported 40 per cent of Fortune 500 companies to invest in online learning tools.
Elearning tools demonstrate to employees that companies are prepared to invest in their training and development. As a result, individuals feel empowered and focused. What’s more, when they have access to information instantly, they improve their knowledge in just a few clicks. All this leads to a marked increase in productivity.
