Knowledge is the key to success. Here at LearningSI we understand that learning is at the very heart of improvement and achievement, at both the individual and organizational level.
E-Learning is one excellent way to facilitate on-going learning in the workplace. It is cost effective for organizations, and allows for greater flexibility and personalized learning for employees.
D&A Magazine put together a list of reasons e-learning benefits the workplace at all levels:
E-Learning Advantages for the Organization
- Cost-effective. The production of learning content is a time consuming endeavor – whether it is online or off. However, e-learning brings an improved return on investment each time an employee accesses the course, as you are dividing the fixed production costs by number of uses. An online learning environment also eliminates the cost of transportation, physical textbooks and other material and labour costs incurred by attending classes in a traditional setting.
- Improved productivity. In today’s economy, businesses are looking for ways to do more with less. Research shows ongoing employee learning leads to improved, and more efficient, performance. The added value behind e-learning is that the tools and skills offered are not bound by geography or time, meaning you can control the impact on production by encouraging employees to access training courses during down times.
- Standardized learning. One of the challenges with traditional learning environments is the fact facilitators may change and the courses may be presented differently across separate sessions. This is not an issue with e-learning, as it allows you to create a standardized process, resulting in consistency in the delivery of content.
