The need for training in our modern work environment has never been more critical. That’s because the job skills we require of our workers have never been more complex or more specialized. The advances in technology that continues to improve productivity in the workplace are also making the tasks of our workers more challenging. The only way to meet these challenges in job complexity is through effective skills training.
When employee development managers consider the options available for training today’s workforce, increasingly they are turning to eLearning solutions. The effectiveness of eLearning within the work environment has grown along with the advances in technology used to develop and deliver it. In this way eLearning is keeping pace with the needs of industry, while also meeting the growing needs of employees.
Part of the reason eLearning is garnering such positive attention is the increasing recognition of its effectiveness. When implemented correctly, eLearning has the advantage of being more efficient, more relevant, and a more enjoyable way of learning than traditional training methods.
eLearning is more efficient because we no longer rely solely on sending an employee to off-site training or sitting them in a classroom for hours on end, and instead bring the training to the employee. It’s more relevant because we can target very specific job skills and deliver them any time an employee needs to access them. It is also a more enjoyable way to learn because employees can progress at their own rate of comprehension, without the pressure that sometimes accompanies a classroom setting.
Within eLearning design, there are ways to create courses that have more appeal for your intended audience. These techniques aren’t secrets or tricks of the trade; rather they are time-tested training methodologies that are modernized for use in today’s on-line and electronically delivered media.
Here are some examples of successful eLearning techniques that are designed to engage and appeal to your audience.
