eLearning for SAP Modules
In recent years, as online technologies have continued to evolve, online learning or ‘eLearning’ has emerged as one of the primary approaches corporations look to in order to training their employees on the effective use of the various SAP modules.
If your organization is considering the use of eLearning for employee training of the SAP modules, here are some of the benefits you can expect:
eLearning reduces or even eliminates many of the costs associated with classroom-based training, such as travel, venue and instructor fees, meals, and the distribution of printed materials. And with eLearning, there is no lost productivity cost as your employees can conduct their learning activities during breaks or after hours.
Unlike classroom-based training, eLearning allows your employees to conduct their training at any time and from any place that is convenient for them. All that is required is an Internet connection (and in fact, many eLearning activities can even be performed offline). This level of convenience helps to create a more productive learning experience.
One of the challenges of classroom-based training is that the students must keep up with the pace set by the instructor. eLearning eliminates this challenge by allowing students to learn at their own pace. They can even revisit important or challenging materials multiple times before moving on to the next section.
Communication and Collaboration
Many eLearning platforms now include tools to enable online communication among students or between students and instructors. These tools help create and support a more productive learning environment and can streamline the program feedback process.
Data Collection and Analysis
eLearning allows for immediate and through data capture around program engagement and success. The analysis of this data can be extremely valuable as you look to expand and improve your SAP module training program over time.
