This leads to uniformity of instruction. eLearning enhances the scalability of the courses that is, without much fuss it can be taken by any number of users. Development of eLearning courses is a onetime investment.

Once the organizations get their training modules developed, they can just ask any number of employees to complete these training without any recurring costs of organizing the faculties and organizing the training venue, infrastructure, etc. again and again with each new joiner. Updating the courses or modules is quick and easy through eLearning development.

Should I make use of eLearning development for my organization?

When in doubt, ask the following questions to make sure whether you really want to get eLearning courses developed for your organization-

  1. What am I aiming to achieve for my organization and how the eLearning courses developed would help me achieve them?
  2. What behavioral changes do I want to see in my employees?
  3. Would I like to pay a onetime eLearning course development course, or would I like to pay each time I need to organize training for my employees?
  4. The topic or the content for which I need to provide the training, will be delivered effectively through a traditional classroom instructor-led training approach, through an eLearning course or through blended learning?
  5. Do I have the required infrastructure for running the eLearning courses for my employees?
  6. Would I like to get the course created and have a long-term solution to my training needs or would I like to keep on getting occupied for the arrangements of the trainings (availability of the faculty, availability of the venue, other arrangements needed for a physical training session etc.) that have to be organized throughout the year for the employees?
  7. Do my employees or learners need the training as and when they need it, or they should be provided the training as per the fixed schedules of the company?
  8. Am I willing to organize the training again and again if the employees or the learners wish to refresh their knowledge, or I would like to save myself from that botheration and provide them with a permanent solution, so that they can access their training as and when they need to refresh?

Once you answer these questions, it will be easier for you to come to an answer whether your company needs to get the eLearning courses developed or you wish to go ahead with the traditional methods of training.
