Video for Better Results and Better Learning

Animated and interactive online training ensures learners are able to fully engage and get some enjoyment from the process. This is in addition to the essential knowledge needed to “pass” the course and achieve a good level of training in any area.

Video online training and e-learning offers an individual experience and it allows the learner to focus on their training.

why elearning can help you discover new skills-01

The nature of e-learning makes it a perfect tool for discovering new skills and developing new specialist areas for the workplace. E-learning is designed to suit many different learning styles and it allows for learners to pace themselves appropriately. Fast learners can speed through and put their new skills into practice. Conversely, those who need more time can take it.

E-learning makes it easy to discover new skills and put them to good use because it is tailored to the learner. It also benefits the training organisation and employers too, so everybody benefits. Here are some of the key benefits that come with investment e-learning.

Flexible Scheduling

Some people work better first thing in the morning, others are true night owls. The beauty of e-learning is that it can be take place whenever suits the individual learner. This is ideal for working professionals who need to fit their new skill learning and practice around work commitments. It avoids the need to physically attend classes and new skills can be picked up easily and quickly.

Economical Costs

E-learning is almost always more affordable for the learner and the training provider. It can make learning new skills a feasible option for people. Previously it may have been too costly. Paying less money means the learners may be able to invest in more courses and develop their skills more rapidly.

Diverse Learning Formats

As already mentioned different people have different learning styles and e-learning embraces this and offers varied options. Short digestible modules sit alongside lengthier lesson-style content as well as highly effective video content. Interactive elements such as quizzes and tests are valuable too. They allow learners to reflect on the kinds of content which work best for them and feedback to the training provider.

E-learning makes picking up a new skill easier than ever before. Many learners don’t just stop at one course either!

Although 2017 is well under way we still think it is worth looking back at the most popular and interesting e-learning trends of last year.

These trends are set to become standards in the current year so the more we know and share, the better.  Here are five of the top trends of 2016.

1.      Gamification

The use of gaming in online training is set to continue to be popular in 2017. Interactive game-style learning in the work environment is a certain way to engage and encourage employees to push their skills to the next level. The gamification market is growing and the e-learning sector is a big part of this.

2.      Competence-Based Training

Competency-based training is effective in helping individuals forge on with their careers. They provide a clear route to promotion for employees, thus making them popular with individual learners and the companies employing them. This type of learning allows for regular self-assessment and skill set evaluation, with view to furthering careers.

3.      Mobile Learning

The modern learner wants to be able to access their courses easily and wherever they may be. This has led to the rise in mobile learning. 100% mobile-based learning management systems already exist, with others adding this dimension to their platform. They make it even easier to ensure employees have no excuse not to complete their training as it is so easily accessible.

4.      Big Data

Big Data is instrumental in furthering the amount of information we store and use about our customers, or learners. Harnessing Big Data allows training providers to create more personalised and individual content. This ensures that each learner enjoys a customised learning experience tailored to their skills. Big Data analytics will also be central in shaping the future of e-learning.

5.      Video-Based Training

Video training has been steadily growing in popularity, a trend which will continue in 2017. Almost everybody already recognises how engaging training through video is. More companies are investing in video-based e-learning programmes.  They help ensure their employees are fully trained and able to access necessary course information suitable to their roles.
