Benefits of e-learning

E-learning is delivering training online for both learners and trainers, but its scope extends far beyond this. There are many benefits of e-learning, and understanding how it transforms learning experiences for individuals and organisations is a key part of this.



Reduced costs

Traditional in-person training can be very expensive. Not only will you have to pay a professional to come in for the day, you will also likely have to gather together a group of team members which can have a detrimental effect on the output of the business.

E-learning provides a cost-effective solution and allows a business to save money on various collateral as there will be no need for endless workbooks as learners will have everything they need stored on one small device.


Multimedia materials

The way in which people learn has changed. Gone are the days where employees would benefit from reading through endless text. Individuals now prefer to have various forms of media to learn from, such as a 20-30 minute video on a specific course. Not only does this multimedia approach increase retention, but it makes learning far more engaging.

A multimedia-rich environment also captures learners’ attention and deepens their understanding, resulting in enhanced performance.

Your employees are more likely to complete an online course where they received a certificate instantly, rather than a full day course that includes travelling to and from.


Sensory engagement 

Studies show that engaging multiple senses during learning enhance recall. Frequent questions and mastery checks gives learners a chance to experience the training in a safe space before applying their new skills on the job.

This removes the stigma of making a mistake in training, and gives participants the chance to retake the session as many times as they need.


More customisation 

Why wouldn’t you want your learning experience to be unique to each person? E-learning does just that.

A bespoke training strategy for each employee allows them to learn at their own pace and also creates a learning atmosphere that focus entirely on their unique requirements.


Continuous development

Businesses enforcing in-person training will often struggle with the ‘regulatory’ aspect. Very often enough, a professional trainer will carry out a session and then return in six months to a year to do another - a strategy which doesn’t lend itself to information retention.

E-learning ensures that continuous development takes place and also that the development is tracked. This means that team growth becomes a key part of employment and ensures people are upskilling to maximise their potential.
