Benefits of online learning

KBAT elearning courses

Training in the digital era

The emergence of digital technologies is spearheading a refreshing change in the training arena. Traditional, instructor-based training (classroom model) is rapidly giving way to e-learning. Advantages such as reduced training costs, better convenience and higher knowledge retention are the key benefits that make e-learning an attractive proposition – both for organisations and employees.

Are you time-starved? Go online!

Time is perhaps the most premium resource in today’s fast-paced, urban existence where individuals strive to strike the life-work balance. Physically visiting the academy/institute to attend a particular training program at a specified hour is indeed a drain on precious time. Online learning comes across as the ideal way out. Owing to the great flexibility and convenience of online training, busy employees who are caught up in a hectic daily schedule stand to gain immensely; they can study at their end as per their personal convenience and time preference.

Dispel the doubts

Resistance to change is a natural human tendency. Whenever a new technology is introduced, users are bound to have queries about its effectiveness. Online learning is certainly not an exception.

It is essentially a mindset issue; switching from the conventional, classroom model to a virtual environment and adapting to digital channels is easier said than done. However, once an individual gets accustomed to this mode of learning, it is smooth sailing there on.

Some users could be concerned about the technicalities, such as high Internet bandwidth and 100% uptime. However, this issue is limited to a miniscule segment of learners and it may even not be a permanent problem.
