The Basics: What is eLearning?
eLearning. What is it? The "e" in eLearning stands for electronic. Simply put, eLearning is learning that is conducted via electronic media, such as the internet. So maybe you've done a training on a computer, with slides, videos and questions... those would be eLearning!
So why use eLearning for your employees? A quick powerpoint you put together might not be the most effective way to teach your employees a new process or procedure. But eLearning can be very engaging and effective when designed and created properly. It can also make better use of time in a busy work environment, you can have your employees take the eLearning course in shifts and you won't have to shut down for a day for a training class with an instructor.
