Studies show that students retain between 25-60% more through online learning than they do in traditional classroom settings. Plus, 93% of employees would rather learn on the job, which e-learning enables them to do.
The Auditdata team encourages our customers to leverage e-learning, an efficient, convenient, engaging, economical way to train your staff without the challenges associated with classroom-based training. We offer a free standard version of our e-learning materials, as well as a paid, customizable version.
The benefits of using e-learning to train your employees includes the ability to:
- Customize training. Each of your employees have different needs, responsibilities, and learning styles. Plus, each staff member will need to use the Auditdata tools differently. Your audiologist will use the hearing examination tools within Measure, while your front office staff will rely on appointment reminders, and your office manager may need to leverage the marketing features. Offer training that’s accessible and relevant to everyone.
- Let employees learn at their own pace. E-learning allows students to discover, read, watch, and interact at their own pace, which leads to increased student satisfaction and reduced stress.
- Reduce costs. In-person training can expensive when you factor in the cost of an instructor, travel time, time off work, and the cost of books/materials, but eLearning is far more economical. Global company IBM claimed it saved $200 million by switching to eLearning vs. classroom based training, and they estimated that every dollar invested in e-learning resulted in $30 in additional productivity since employees didn’t need to travel or take time off work for training.
- Use multimedia materials. Custom e-learning utilizes multimedia materials, letting participants view graphics, watch videos, and use interactive online features. Instead of slogging through pages of dull textbooks or sitting passively through presentations, e-learners are engaged in the material, which increases retention.
- Make learning more efficient. Today’s learners want bite-sized information fast and on demand, and this microlearning makes learning 17% more effective. E-learning is more efficient and can reduce learning time by 20-65% vs. traditional, in-person learning. And, interestingly, mobile users complete e-learning courses 45% faster than desktop learners.
- Learn in a judgement-free zone. In a traditional classroom setting – or in the workplace – students might be hesitant to raise their hand and risk failure or embarrassment. But with e-learning, students can learn, explore, and course-correct, as necessary, in a judgement-free zone.
- Foster better collaboration and team building. It can be challenging to get quiet students to participate – and to get boisterous students to pay attention – in traditional classroom settings. E-learning provides the ability to learn, share, collaborate, and connect, and is beneficial for students of all personality types and learning styles.
- Standardize the experience. Learners’ training experiences are influenced by different instructors, personalities, and materials, all of which can vary wildly from location to location in traditional settings. E-learning provides a standardized experience, delivering the same high-quality instruction and materials to all students, resulting in better control over the learning environment. With this learning approach, you can feel comfortable that all your employees are accessing the same, high-quality experience.
