The Learning Rooms: 5 Advantages Of eLearning—Infographic
eLearning offers organizations a wide range of solutions to common training needs. We’ve narrowed down our top 5 advantages.
eLearning gives employees the flexibility to learn where and when they want. It stops the need for scheduling everyone together in the same place at the same time. eLearning is on-demand and self-paced, enabling the learner to receive the information they need exactly when they need it.
Well-designed eLearning courses stimulate and motivate the learner through interaction. Interactive moments like scenario-based questions, videos, mini-games, and simulations dotted throughout the course keep the learner engaged.
Traditional learning is generally a one-size-fits-all solution. With eLearning, there is much more variety and personalized opportunities available. Organizations can develop learner-centered digital courses that are specifically directed at a certain group or a certain problem. Employees are more motivated to pay attention to content that is customized to their particular needs.
4. Employee Retention
Employee recruitment and onboarding have a financial impact on organizations as well as other losses such as lost productivity. eLearning can help prevent that. A recent study found that 70% of employees are more likely to stay with a company that provides job-related training and development opportunities. Encouraging employees to develop their skillset will strengthen the company's workforce and prevent internal obstacles.
Cost is always an important consideration for any learning program. Organizations can often end up paying high prices to develop courses, hire trainers, travel expenses, etc. Not to mention having employees sacrifice large amounts of their day to attend these courses. eLearning can eliminate some of these costs. Digital courses can be rolled out to different employees and completed at a time that is most convenient to them.
