One of the biggest benefits of online learning in your company over classroom sessions is that online learning can be continuous, hence enabling reinforcement, application and assessment of the topic. The online medium should theoretically make it extremely easy to do this.
It seems ridiculously obvious that any online or blended training program should experience this benefit. Is that really the case for you? If yes, how easily were you able to reap this benefit? If no, you are in company of an overwhelming majority.
When this benefit is ascribed to online learning, it carries some underlying assumptions that are not so obvious. A bit of digging into the assumptions makes it obvious as to why this benefit has stayed on paper. Let us look at these assumptions.
How many of the above conditions are satisfied by your online learning environment? Unless all these elements come together, online learning will remain a fringe strategy for you and you will continue to rely heavily on classroom training sessions.
Is your LMS and your content creation ecosystem using traditional authoring tools really giving you the benefits you deserve?
