Ever increasing numbers of companies like yours are contracting out part of their production or...
In recent years, companies had already adopted e-learning training as a new avenue to train and develop the skills of their employees. This type of training, although popular, was intended as a complementary solution to in-person training.
Many people saw e-learning as a practical and effective solution, while some tended to see it as a second-level format. However, this is not the case since the quality criterias are sometimes higher in e-learning than in-person. It is better to have a quality distance training than lower quality face-to-face training.
The pandemic will have forced us all to rethink how we train our employees. Confinement, partial unemployment of several employees and social distance. Both e-learning and distance training (virtual classes) have become a logical and effective solution to training needs all over the world.
The year 2020 will have forced companies and their employees to make extensive use of remote collaboration tools, such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom. The world of education has also had to adapt by organizing distance training and holding virtual classes for students.
Like telecommuting, the use of e-learning and distance learning is a must for the majority of companies, most of which have adapted quite easily to these technologies and this current reality.
Already, even if traditional training remains a necessary solution in some specific cases, it is to be expected that e-learning and distance learning will continue to take an increasingly important place in the training needs of companies, even when the current pandemic is behind us.
Several factors explain this transformation and enthusiasm for E-Learning courses:
The question is not when, for how long, or how e-learning and distance learning will be the preferred mediums for training your employees, but your ability to adapt to this reality and complement this training offer by accompanying your employees with coaching and guidance, as you have always done. In addition, you have a crucial role to play in establishing e-learning training content that is appropriate and adapted to your reality. Knowledge of your corporate field makes you the best person to identify training products that meet your needs. Your role as a content expert allows you to actively participate in the design of specific training courses that are adapted to your reality.
This unavoidable shift in the world of training has been accelerated by the extraordinary events of the last year but will have challenged all players to offer solutions of great quality that are better adapted to the realities of the corporate world for years to come.
