E-LEARNING COURSE DESIGN AND DELIVERY

Does this sound familiar? In times of budget and funding uncertainty one of the first financial decisions many businesses make is to cut or eliminate learning and development. What’s unfortunate about this is that that doesn’t have to happen.

The truth is organizations suffer a real and unnecessary opportunity loss. It’s actually during difficult times that leaders need to tap the very best from themselves and their staff. It’s the time when people need to engage in learning and growth. They need to actively, intentionally, and rapidly learn new skills and strategies that will help them succeed with effectively addressing the change and challenge.

How can you get improved learning at a lower cost? Leverage cost effective e-learning solutions.

 The benefits of E-Learning:

 Fresh and Relevant Content

E-learning is great when you need timely, relevant training custom designed training for your unique environment. The problem with a lot of “canned” one-size-fits-all training programs is that the content is simply too general or it’s not relevant to your organization. This can be frustrating and wasteful. As a leader, you know the value of sharing business specific knowledge with the people that need it, when they need it.

 Rapid, Real-time, On-Demand Learning

Unlike live, in-person learning that often requires participants to align their schedule to a training calendar, E-learning provides the learner with the freedom to learn when it’s most convenient. E-learning can be achieved on-line or off-line depending on your preference and your needs.

 Freedom to Succeed and Freedom to Fail!

Let’s face it, we all like to succeed and yet to really learn, requires some degree of failure first. No one likes to fail in a classroom full of other people, especially their peers. E-learning lets you fail without fear because you can retake or reset the training course at your own pace. You control how many times you wish to replay the course until you master the content.

 Improved Retention

E-learning can be more engaging that passive in-class learning. Why? Because as the person in control, you drive the learning yourself. You can explore any section of the course content as briefly or as long as you like. Good e-learning courses enable you to interact with the content via quizzes and simulations which are great ways to keep you engaged.

 Personalized Learning

Today’s learner wants flexibility and control over their learning. One-size does not fit all learning styles and preferences. Our instructional design specialists can work with you to personalize and customize training to meet your unique needs.

 Optimized training Costs

Training is an investment. It pays to invest wisely. Delivered well, training can pay great dividends in the way of improved performance, speed and ease of training deployment and the ability to reuse the same content.  

 Consistency and Standardization

Once you have developed great course content, the same consistent content is delivered to everyone. The content does not vary as it does when being taught by different instructors in different settings. 

 Increased Productivity

The flexibility of E-learning helps organizations be more productive. Learners can take a course when it’s most convenient, which can coincide with business downtime. 

STRATEGIC LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT ASSESSMENT

Our Strategic Training Assessment focuses on:

  • How much are you spending on learning?
  • What is the return on your training investment?
  • Is Learning connected with Business needs?
  • Is it focused on the skills of the future?
  • Is your Training Department organized the right way to deliver?
  • Do you have sufficient resources?
  • Are they the right resources?
  • Do you have the right mix of resources (in-house vs out sourced)?
  • Are you taking advantage of technology?
  • Are employees getting what they need?
  • Are certain groups going under served?
  • Am I missing opportunities to drive down the cost of training?

Each of these strategic assessments can be administered individually or in combination with each other.  The assessment(s) will  provide you with a clear view of your company's: 

  • Current State

Our assessment process begins by evaluating the alignment of the learning organizations vision, strategy, and goals with those of the business they are meant to support.  We compare the competency and quality of your training staff, partners and programs to industry standard best practices.  We measure the capability of your training organizational structure and technology for efficiency and effectiveness.  We determine the return on investment from you learning services, staff and technology.
