We’ve recently launched our fantastic new E-Learning platform online which sparked a conversation in the MTC office as to why E- Learning is such an amazing tool. We thought we’d share those reasons with you!
1/ It saves you money! The first (and most important in many small businesses) is that online training can save your company money. Although many training courses may require space for training, equipment etc as well as involving a level of additional time and travel an e-learning course simply requires that the learner has access to a working computer to access the information.
2/ It’s great for employee morale and CPD – CPD stands for continuous personal development which is as simple as it sounds. Looking after your employees is more than simply providing them with work and paying them at the end of each month. Investing in your staff keeps your staff happy, efficient and ahead of the curve.
Richard Branson always said ‘Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough, so they don’t want to.’
3/ Accessibility – Let’s face it. Life can be very, very busy for the professional worker. Taking the time to train is always the priority however, there are 24 hours in a day. E Learning can be accessed at any time to fit around your busy schedule. You can do it in one day or in small chunks. It’s flexible and can be moulded just for you.
4/ Learn at your own pace without pressure – Regardless of your experience at school or any level of learning taking part in training can be a scary thought. What if I can’t keep up? What if I have to ask questions? What if I am behind? The beauty of E-learning is you can do it at your own pace, within the comfort of your own home and without any external pressures.
5/ It’s scalable – Sometimes with training (not ours might we add as we can provide totally bespoke packages) the training you want doesn’t match the number of employees you need to train. Like all our training programmes E-Learning modules can be asily be scaled up to roll out to as many employees as you need.
6/Keep it Green – According to the Open University ‘Distance learning courses consumes an average of 90% less energy and produces 85% fewer CO2 emissions per student than conventional face-to-face courses’ So not only is E-Learning a great way to save your business money it’s also a great way to save the planet too!
So, there you have it! Six, great reasons why E-Learning could be the training vehicle you’re looking for.
