Today, the ability to filter and assimilate new knowledge drives to performance.
As long as continuous learning is the key factor in achieving long term performance, eLearning is not an option, it’s a must. Today, the ability to filter and assimilate new knowledge drives to performance. eLearning is no more an exotic option, but a natural response to the fast changing economic environment. Life-long learning gained its place as a central value in corporate culture, increasing the organization ability to overcome the resistance to change.
The main use of eLearning in a corporate environment:
- knowledge management – ensure that all the employees stay up-to-date with the latest information
- custom talent management content & career development programme
- soft skills & organizational culture
- simulations – the high-end of eLearning usability in corporate training are the simulation engines: medical personell can be taught to use, for example, endoscopy tools in a secure virtual environment; financial organization can predict market changes by projecting different scenarios into a game-like financial simulator.
- law imposed training on labor security, office sexual harassment and other subjects
eLearning advantages in a corporate environment
The beauty of eLearning in a corporate environment is that it removes two common barriers: time and money. But this is just the surface of eLearning advantages.
- interactive content makes eLearning really effective – it attracts the employee and it makes him responsible of his own actions. Learning by doing is a key concept which has great effectiveness in the learning process. It emphases the memoration process through cause-effect mechanism and logical linking.
- flexibility in the workplace – allows the employee to decide when to access the courses and allows him to react at his specific peace
- continuous training – the employee knows his career is on the right track as long as he is challenged to learn new things
- cost savings – although it means nothing compared to the intrinsic effectiveness of an interactive course, the costs savings are not to be neglected. The costs are shifting from classic trainings expenses to custom eContent acquisition. One thing remains certain though, the trainer remains the key element as long as he adapts to the new technologies and actively engages in courses development. Some of the topics are not 100% eLearning suitable. The trainer should draw the line between classic face-to-face training and eLearning.
- just-in-time access to timely information – the employee gets notifications when a new course is available or an old one was updated.
- collaboration and interactivity among employees – communication helps the employee synchronize to the team he works in
