The importance of eLearning in organizations cannot be understated. There’s a reason why so many companies are promoting eLearning for business, but by far the best eLearning products for businesses are the ones that focus on a more modern cloud-based strategy, which combines tried and tested strategies with the latest in modern technology to create a more adaptable eLearning solution.
Of course, there’s often a lingering concern that investing in newer technology is an unnecessary or at least avoidable expense. Something that isn’t always taken into consideration is that in the long run many new technologies save you money as well!
1: Reduced maintenance costs
Because cloud based eLearning solutions are 100% digital and externally hosted, whenever there’s something that needs upgrading, changing, or correcting, it can be done by a qualified technician from anywhere in the world. This seamless, outcall-free approach will save time and money on basic maintenance.
Another huge benefit to reducing the efforts and money put into maintenance is the reduced carbon footprint your company will enjoy. As technicians won’t need to travel and maintenance is cheap and quick, much less fuel goes into the entire process.
2: Faster learning
When your employees linger for more time than necessary on your learning programs, that’s time where you’re spending money on their training and they’re not making money for your company. As eLearning solutions encourage employees to learn faster, that allows them back to work faster as well, improving the cost-benefit ratio of employee training.
Cloud based eLearning offers flexibility that localized eLearning solutions can not. Your employees can study, work, and cooperate from home, during their morning commute, etc, meaning that someone running a bit late or getting ill will not completely ruin a perfectly good daily schedule.
Another benefit of that flexibility is that you can work with companies all around the world. Rather than be limited to working with companies that are near enough to meet your peers in person, you can use eLearning to attend classes and training courses with other learners spread far and wide, always seeking the best training option for your company, no matter the location.
4: Cheap personalization.
Employees learn better and faster if their classes are tailored to their needs. But personal, one-on-one classes can be very expensive. Enter eLearning: providing a tailored experience at a very low cost, saving your company time and money in the long run.
5: Cheap storage.
Whether it’s a virtual tour of the building, a group training session, or a standard routine test that employees must undergo, storing and distributing information for employee education can be expensive. Because cloud-based eLearning solutions have their own data cloud and storage system, you can rely on them to properly categorize and allow access to all the right information, saving you considerable expense on setting up and maintaining your own web hosting systems.
For those reasons and many more, cloud-based eLearning is the best option for e vast majority of businesses.
