The Benefits of E-Learning for Organisations
E-learning has become a tool for organizations to reach out to employee more effectively and equip them with the necessary training that will make them more productive. Let’s dive in and take a look at some of the benefits:
• Improved training costs.
Producing learning content is time consuming whether it’s online or not. With e-learning, each time the course is accessed your return on investment improves because you are dividing the fixed production costs by number of uses. You also have savings through decreased travel, reduced material, and hopefully improved (and more efficient) performance.
• Decreased material costs.
Let’s say you have to train how to arrange equipment in a sterile environment like an operating room. If you had to use the real environment, it would be costly. Even setting up a fake environment has material costs and labor. By creating the environment online and letting the learner practice, you never have to worry about the costs associated with set up, use, and clean up.
• Increased productivity.
Because e-learning is not bound by geography or time, you can control training’s impact on production by training people during down times. In addition, with the current economy, you’re asking people to do more with less. So e-learning is a great way to give them the tools and skills needed to enhance their performance.
You may have a great facilitator, but that’s no guarantee that the courses are presented the same across sessions. E-learning allows you to create a standardized process and consistency in the delivery of content. It also compresses delivery time.
That’s just some of the great benefits of e-learning.
