e-Learning AdvantagesCondense training
Traditional training attendees have to wade through a lot of verbal garbage - salutations and introductions, irrelevant questions from participants, information about the location of restrooms and refreshments, "ums" and "ahs", and a few rabbit chases. In fact, when we edit out all of the verbal garbage and convert a full-day conference into multimedia format, we usually end up with only 3 or 4 hours of actual training. This means for a single 12-person class that last 2 days, a company could be saving 120 man hours by putting the class online.
Make new hires productive
How often are new hires burning time waiting for more instruction on their duties and responsibilities? Take advantage of day one by allowing them to train on all the basics. e-Learning allows you to easily prepare them for success.
Keep employees productive
With e-Learning, employees can receive training anytime and anywhere, whether filling gaps between meetings, sitting at home tending to their sick child, waiting to board a plane, or even flying cross country. Training can happen during down-time instead of being forced when it is not conducive to productivity. For sales training this is especially important, every time you take a salesperson out of the field for training, you lose out on sales. e-Learning fits into everyone's schedule and makes the most of everyone's time.
Pick up the pace
Some people pick up concepts faster than others, and a lot of people waste time sitting through training sessions that are either not applicable to them or covering subjects they have already mastered. e-Learning allows each person to learn at his or her own pace, and focus on what matters most to them.
What are the chances of getting every employee in your organization in a single room at the same time for a training session? Nearly impossible. Even when a training conferences is effective, what about those individuals who could not attend? Bring the conference to EVERYONE by capturing it in a dynamic multimedia format. We have solutions that can quickly put all the important content online in a format that people can access from low or high bandwidth connections.
Evaluate learning retention.
e-Learning provides opportunities for measuring employee understanding and retention of key points. You can pre-test your audience easily to see what training is actually needed. Then you can follow up training with a post test that measures exactly what they have learned.
