Not only does eLearning save the business money from instructor-led preparation, it does so much more. If you are making a case for eLearning growth, these are the key benefits of eLearning for your workers and your company:
Save capital from the business
Reduces the time of studying
Better retention of staff on most educational subjects
Just-in-Time Connectivity for Global Workers
Provides workers with regular access to essential services
Guarantees a risk-free atmosphere for the workers
Allows for global cooperation
Suits the versatile lifestyle of your employee
Scalable to any number of workers
Provides prompt reviews to the staff and supervisors
Ensures continuity in preparation and standardization
Reduces the environmental footprint of your business
Let’s take a closer look at these benefits of eLearning.
1. Save capital from the business
We’re going to start with the bottom-line. ELearning is simply more cost-effective for a wider audience of workers. You reduce the expenses for coaches and staff, as well as the costs of training facilities, travel, catering and supplies. For eLearning, on the other hand, workers would only require access to a computer or cell phone and some time to complete their preparation.
2. Reduces the learning time of the staff
Much as eLearning saves you money, making a move can also lead to big savings in your employee’s time. And this isn’t a trivial number. Do you know that eLearning cuts your employee’s learning time by as much as 60% relative to conventional learning?
ELearning will minimize the time of workers involved with:
Start and wind up learning sessions
Period of flight
Breaks and Diet
Teaching a group, not an entity.
ELearning cuts learning time by 60%
3. Better retention of staff on most educational subjects
As we addressed in a previous article, eLearning is simply a simpler way to educate staff on such subjects.
With gaming, animations, and other immersive content, eLearning will significantly improve the employee’s interaction with and retention of key knowledge. This refers in particular to unique, succinct subjects, such as new tech testing, regulatory protocols or reference manuals that can be viewed on-the-go.
4. Just-in-Time Connectivity for Global Workers
Speaking of on-the-go, one of the biggest advantages of eLearning at the workplace is that it is open 24/7 to an increasingly global and remote population.
Your workers can have access to training because they have the time and resources to do so, no matter where they are.
5. Provides workers with regular access to essential services
If the preparation requires a lot of documents that need to be referenced later—such as current design specifications—eLearning allows your workers the ability to use certain tools when they need them.
6. Guarantees a risk-free atmosphere for the workers
One of the main disadvantages of instructor-led community teaching is that some personnel will stop contributing to the lesson due to fear of disappointment. ELearning solutions offer workers the ability to struggle in a secure environment.
7. Allows for global cooperation
For an increasingly global population, one of the biggest advantages of eLearning is that it can be designed to promote online communication around the globe.
Some of the best eLearning tools allow workers from various divisions and countries to contribute to wider business conversations, right inside the training module itself.
8. Suits the versatile lifestyle of your employee
Today’s employers expect solutions in the workplace that suit their lifestyles. Providing training that can be accessed when it works best for them accounts for your employee’s need for flexibility, thus improving overall employee morale.
9. Scalable to any number of workers
Once you’ve created your eLearning modules, they can easily be scaled up to roll out to as many employees as you need, in as many languages as you require.
Instead of trying to find instructors and classroom space to dedicate to training, all that your employees need is access to a computer or mobile phone.
10. Provides prompt reviews to the staff and supervisors
Grading multiple paper exams and providing feedback to employee questions all take a considerable amount of time for management. And employees often have to wait to get the feedback they need to do their jobs correctly.
11. Ensures continuity in preparation and standardization
Once you’ve put in the work to create an eLearning course, you know that all of your employees will receive the same high-quality training, no matter where they are.
12. Reduces your company’s environmental impact
Switching to eLearning isn’t only financially savvy; it’s also better for the environment. As Articulate reports on their blog:
