Why Look to E-Learning for Business Skills Development?
In today's unforgiving business environment, companies sink or swim based on how widely and how well their workforces have mastered critical business skills. Training in business skills has emerged as a key driver of sustainable competitive advantage. The question for training departments is what type of business skills training solution can best help your organization succeed?
The Advantages of Online Business Skills Training
For supporting business skills training needs across an entire organization, online learning—conducted over the Internet or over an organization's internal intranet—offers significant advantages over classroom-based training:
- Online business skills instruction costs substantially less per student-hour than classroom training, while still delivering highly effective instruction.
- Because business skills training conducted online is self-paced and modular, it's much easier to incorporate into hectic work schedules than classroom instruction.
- By using an online (or "elearning") training solution, you can be sure that you're delivering consistent business skills content across your whole organization, even if it's geographically dispersed.
- E-learning based business skills development is environmentally friendly, since it requires no student or instructor travel, creates no paper waste, and accommodates telecommuting.
