Recent Experience from eLearning
There is now significant experience available to allow companies to quantify the effectiveness of the eLearning programs they have implemented. With a few notable exceptions, it is fair to say the 100% eLearning has never threatened to replaced traditional teaching methods although many aspects of it use have brought significant benefits.
The term ÃƒÆ'Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â'blended trainingÃƒÆ'Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â' is now becoming increasingly used by companies to describe the way they combine traditional and electronic learning, to provide the best overall results. Some of the key benefits can be:-
- Automatic training needs analysis with remote testing facilities available before and after each course.
- Increased flexibility with the opportunity for students to take extra training when and where they get the chance.
- Wider distribution of course materials, with no real additional cost.
- One to one interactive tuition for students who might need extra help on particular parts of the course.
- Just in time courses available when students need a refresher on course material they studied several years earlier.
- Reduced printing and distribution costs.
- Sometimes the same course content can be provided with students spending less time away from their place of work; thus saving both the training supplier and student, time and money.
