Could e-learning be the answer to your training woes? 

E-learning is the nemesis of tutors and trainers everywhere. At least, in the eyes of some trainers who see e-learning as a ‘rival’ to their day-to-day business. 

It takes learners away from the sanctuary of the classroom and the knowledge and experience of a trainer, who may have decades of real-life, hands-on experience within a subject area. An e-learning course can’t be a match for that experience, it can’t share the passion of the trainer. And without passion, and engagement, what use is e-learning?  

Of course, to a degree, that is true. Not the sort of acknowledgment you may expect from an award-winning provider of e-learning. An e-learning programme can not share the anecdotes of an experienced trainer with years of on-the-job experience. It can’t be funny, charming and oozing charisma.  But, it can be a useful tool in the training mix and offer benefits that perhaps you weren’t expecting…

Why should I offer e-learning?
