A few days back, when I gave a brief introduction of Nittio Learn to an acquaintance, she made a remark - "Oh, that means corporate eLearning would cover more business critical areas than the typical don't do eLearning". When I asked her what she meant by "don't do" eLearning, she answered that she had always encountered only legally mandated compliance trainings and other trainings of similar nature through eLearning. These trainings are mostly telling employees what not to do at work, leading eLearning to get the "don't do" eLearning tag.
I found the articulation really interesting. While those trainings are important in their own right, they do not cover the core expertise that your employees need to have. It is only when eLearning is applied to more business critical expertise that you can gain from its real benefits:
eLearning does not have to be just for the stuff that is on the side-lines of your business areas. Today's technology allows you to incorporate eLearning into your core business areas and multiply the output of your employees.
Are you under an assumption that self-learning content of your organisation is limited to those expensive e-learning modules that you bought? Think again.
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 theoritically make it extremely easy to do this.
Are you in the middle of deciding whether to build or buy your Learning Management System (LMS)? Below is a handy list of considerations, with some suggestions.
