Is E-Learning Too Good to Be True?
Build it once. Use it thousands of times.
Designed effectively, e-learning works well for content that needs to be delivered multiple times to different audiences. (Think: onboarding new employees.) Self-contained e-learning courses let users access training on their own schedules, from their own desks. It’s a cost-effective way to train a large population, no matter where in the world they may be.
Good e-learning is engaging and immersive.
Professional e-learning courses are more than simple “page-turners” that users passively click through. Animations, activities, rollovers, knowledge checks, interactive scenarios, and other points of engagement should immerse learners in the course material.
Interactive e-learning includes a host of benefits that can make it seem too good to be true. But the benefits all check out. Here’s our take on e-learning’s many advantages.
- Asynchronous learning. Learners can take a course when they want, where they want, and at their own pace.
- Cost-effectiveness. E-learning can reach thousands of learners anywhere in the world.
- Consistent delivery. All learners receive the same information (unless you want to build in variations). This can be especially important with technical topics.
- Review. Learners can review challenging material at any time.
- Minimal interruption. Learners don’t need to take time away from work to travel or attend a long training session.
- Modularity. E-learning is readily adaptable to updated content, swapping in new information as needed.
- Online integration. E-learning makes incorporating or referencing content from across the internet simple.
