Online learning gives your learners the opportunity to study whenever and wherever they want, 24/7 and 365 days a year. They can lean online at home, at their workplace, on the train or wherever else it is convenient to them.
Online learning is goal orientated and offers learners ‘right on time’ courses to guarantee the best result. The learner decides when they feel like studying and what will be studied, so they are not bound to a specific time and place.
With online learning you always get up-to-date progress and results of your learners. These data can be reported to a manager, HR Officer or training coordinator, who will also be kept informed about the learners’ completion of training parts.
Online learning makes sure the use of contact hours can be reduced significantly. A large part of the studying can take place online, so learners have less time away from their workplace and need less travel time. It also gives the possibility for a large group to be trained in a limited time period. You can’t get 200 managers in a classroom for 2 weeks, but you can train them with an online course.
After the online training the course content can be made available as a reference. Knowledge retention before and after the exam can also be higher due to adaptive retention training.
Online learning is also a lot of fun! Creating a positive learning experience is all about the flow. You can achieve this by an accessible platform and by content that meets the learners’ expectations. All of this in a training course that challenges the learner sufficiently but is not too difficult and provides immediate feedback. The game format also helps, especially if your target group has a competitive state of mind.
Online learning is not a replacement for, but rather an addition to, traditional learning. In the blended learning solution aNewSpring offers support to the trainer by pro-active statistics and clever communication tools. The trainer guidance and online adaptive guidance offer the learner an optimal studying experience.
Before the start of a classroom training session, knowledge within the group can be brought to an equal level by online training and preparation.
You have an opportunity to optimize the use of trainer-contact hours. A significant part of knowledge building can take place online, therefore outside of contact hours. Statistics provide the trainer with insight into the learner group. Consequently, it is possible to use the trainer-contact much more efficiently. Limiting trainer-contact hours is possible without affecting the quality of the training. As a result, the (cost) effectiveness of studying can improve significantly.
