Importance of E-Learning

1. Speeding Up Employee Training

According to Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Outlook 2017 Survey, eLearning can significantly reduce employee training time.

It typically requires 40-60% less employee time than learning in a traditional classroom setting.

It enables much faster delivery because employees can access eLearning material anytime they want, and anywhere they are, setting their own pace and training whenever they have spare time.

2. Cost Reduction

Cost reduction is often the main reason why companies switch from traditional classroom-based training to eLearning.

In-house training tends to be very expensive, primarily because of the need for a professional trainer who will deliver it and who will help employees improve their knowledge and skills.

On the other hand, eLearning requires only an online training software that is not just cost-effective, but also enables employees to train at home.

This translates to much lower costs related to travel, training venues, learning material, and trainers, not to mention that eLearning almost immediately leads to lower costs by speeding up

employee training.

3. Maximizing Knowledge Retention

Maximizing knowledge retention is one of the most rewarding benefits of eLearning.

eLearning can increase knowledge retention rate by 25-60%, simply because it is much more engaging than learning in a traditional classroom setting.

Since eLearning provides employees with various types of interactive content and multimedia, they can retain much more of what they learn and improve their skills and performance quickly.

You can include gamification and provide them with interactive quizzes and activities that enable real-time feedback, which will all create an effective learning environment where your employees can truly

grow and improve.

4. Increasing Productivity

Self-paced online learning leads to much higher productivity since employees can train at home, and then focus on their core tasks while at work.

Learning in their free time will lead to better performance and higher efficiency, especially because online eLearning software will enable them to revisit any information they need, whenever they

need it.

5. Better Collaboration

Almost every online learning software provides useful communication and collaboration tools, which are essential for knowledge improvement and building a strong collaborative workforce.

This software will enable your employees to communicate with you and among one another in real-time, which will lead to increased engagement and a comfortable and empowering learning environment.

Real-time collaboration and feedback provided by eLearning will help you effectively address everyone’s strengths and weaknesses, and deal with skill gaps, so that you can truly help your learners improve

their skills and abilities, and ultimately enable them to improve and grow.
