Today, companies of all sizes offer leadership training programs to provide their employees with a structured path that allows for the development of an array of skills these workers will need to serve as leaders of the organization. For many organizations, these leadership developments fall under their overall employee onboarding and training program delivered online through eLearning.
The Benefits of Corporate eLearning for Leadership Training
In recent years, as cloud-based technologies have continued to evolve, online training, often referred to as “eLearning”, has emerged as the cornerstone approach for all types of corporate learning and training, including leadership training. eLearning refers to the use of electronic technologies (typically the Internet) to build and deliver these learning programs.
Some of the benefits of eLearning include:
eLearning reduces many of the major expenses associated with traditional, classroom-based training, such as travel, on-site instructor fees, catering, and the printing and distribution of learning materials. And, given the fact that eLearning activities can be conducted at any time, it eliminates the need to pull people away from their jobs during work hours.
One of the challenges of classroom-based training is in the fact that all students must keep up with the pace set by the instructor. eLearning eliminates this challenges by allowing employees to conduct learning activities at their own pace and spend as much time on each section as they need to before moving on in the course.
eLearning offers a level of convenience that is unmatched by classroom-based training as it allows your workers to conduct their eLearning activities at any time and from any place that is convenient for them. All that is required is an Internet connection. This level of convenience has shown to increase employee engagement in learning programs while maximizing comprehension and retention level.
While classroom-based training requires a great deal of planning and preparation (and therefore a time lag) to introduce new learning content, eLearning allows for a fast delivery of new courses. This can be especially important for those organizations that deliver compliance and other time-sensitive training materials.
eLearning offers a powerful way to capture and report on learning engagement and success data. The ongoing capture and analysis of this information can be very helpful as your organization looks to expand and refine your training programs over time.
Utilizing Leadership Training Materials Online
Many of the Learning Management Systems (LMSs) available today enable you to leverage and re-purpose your existing leadership training materials for eLearning. The content of these materials can often be in video (YouTube, Vimeo, or MP4), document, PDF, image, HTML5, or another type of file format. The ability to re-purpose existing leadership training materials for eLearning programs can save money for your organization while allowing you to deploy new leadership training programs very quickly.
