This isn’t your father’s technical training. In today’s environment of social distancing, training is going virtual.
In fact, over 90% of organizations ether already use live online learning now or plan to use it this year.
Yet there’s plenty of room for growth. Only about 1 in 10 formal training programs are live online. And fewer than 1 in 10 learners use mobile devices to participate in virtual training classes.
The benefits of e-learning are impressive. One survey finds that e-learning takes anywhere from 40% to 60% less time than classroom instruction. Another study shows that e-learning enables students to learn 5 times more material for every hour of training than classroom learning.
Benefits including these are why 60% of organizations expect to conduct more e-learning. And why 70% expect to blend live classrooms with virtual training.
Top challenges of e-learning? They include unprepared participants (cited by 38% of respondents to a recent survey), technology challenges (37%), and unskilled facilitators (25%).
How about you? Now’s the time to get ready to train your customers virtually.
