What is eLearning?
Simply put, eLearning is training provided via a computer or other digital device, allowing technology to facilitate learning anytime, anywhere. eLearning uses an online platform designed to deliver interactive course material incorporating video, audio, interactive games, quizzes and other multimedia content.
What are the benefits of eLearning?
Organisations use eLearning to scale, save money, and save learners’ time. Without the cost of classroom logistics, and by allowing learners to self-guide through the course, organizations are spending less, and learners are learning more. In fact, research claims that “e-Learning typically requires 40-60% less employee time than learning the same material in a traditional classroom setting.” It lends itself to global delivery, capitalizes on the rich media available with today’s technology, and applies adult learning principles to target an audience used to having real-time information from the smartphone in their hands.
