Engaging with the New eLearning
Industry studies reveal evident increases in training and development delivered via eLearning, yet disappointing numbers characterizing participation and persistence continue to exist. eLearning enables delivery of both learning and information at will, while dynamically and immediately taping the knowledge of experts and non-experts and catapulting those messages beyond classroom walls and into the workplace. Furthermore, since eLearning achieves its full potential when used repeatedly over time and place by engaged participants, many fail to embrace the virtual approach due to overall impatience and lack of training.
This white paper explores the advantages of eLearning and highlights 12 strategies with focus on virtual learning programs.
