LMS Tips: The recent surge of optimism in Online Learning

March 2011


Join The Surge of Optimism in Learning




Learning executives ended 2010 with a surge of optimism and are confident about the outlook and expectations for the learning function in 2011, according to the latest measurement by the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD). The Learning Executives Confidence Index surveyed 235 learning executives about their expectations in four areas: impact on corporate performance, ability to meet learning needs, status as a key strategic component and availability of resources.


What does this mean for you? If you’re a company that’s held back on its training initiatives for the last few years, it may be time to jump start your learning initiatives. Better yet, transform them with an online training solution!


Impact on corporate performance.


A carefully crafted E-Learning program will make an immediate impact on corporate performance when you align your training course content with targeted learning objectives and strategic business goals. Your online training program should be a direct reflection of the skills and knowledge your employees need in order to thrive in today’s emerging and competitive marketplace. Enhancing your sales function, improving product knowledge and creating efficiencies are just a few of the areas that can be positively impacted.


Are your learning needs being met?


Web-based training is out-pacing traditional classroom training as the global delivery method of choice for virtually every size and type of company. Chances are your learning needs are not being met. However, converting your time, overhead and resources to an online solution produces nothing but savings while creating a broader educational outreach to employees, customers, students and everyone in your training audience.


Key strategic training components.


Technology, healthcare, manufacturing, distribution and educational training may vary in program content and pool of learners, but their key strategic training objectives are probably more similar than not. The organizational big picture typically focuses on leadership advancement, succession planning, employee development and pathways to growth. E-learning can help you reach, mentor and motivate your team and can help ensure that your business success is everyone’s shared responsibility.


Maximize your resources.


Despite the recent surge in optimism, adhering to the budget is the reality for one and all, and maximizing your resources is crucial to keeping costs in check. Training translates to positive economic change, and E-Learning translates to reaching more students with less administration. With online training, your project leaders and training team can capitalize on the virtual training world, deliver valuable, consistent course content, track student progress and translate the data into meaningful metrics.
