Online learning has features that adapt to these modern learning preferences, hence its rise in popularity. Here are the top five benefits of e-learning.
1. Online learning saves time and money.
With online learning, your students can access content anywhere, anytime. They do not need to take time off from work to attend classes. E-learning is also profitable; Companies save a considerable amount on the travel and accommodation costs of students and instructors, as well as venue and materials. No printing also helps reduce your carbon footprint.
2. Online learning leads to better retention.
Modern students prefer small, interactive content. They would rather watch a video or listen to a podcast than read the pages of a manual. E-learning tools allow learning designers to make content interactive. The more attractive the content, the better students will remember the information. If they like to learn, they can remember and apply the concepts at work.
3. E-learning is consistent.
In face-to-face sessions, each instructor has her own teaching method. Each varies in focus and style and is susceptible to error. You can eliminate these problems with e-learning. Online learning provides consistent and standardized training at all times. Each student goes through the same experience regardless of when and where they take the course.
4. E-learning is scalable.
Online learning is scalable. You can extend it to the number of employees you need and it is a unique investment. The more students take the course, the faster you can cancel the expense.
5. E-learning offers personalization.
Each student has unique learning goals and preferences. E-learning makes it possible to meet individual needs. It allows students to choose their learning path and navigate at their own pace. When they decide what to learn and when, they stay invested in the course.
