E-learning ‘key to business development’

E-learning ‘key to business development’
News from Virtual College:

The best way for businesses to develop the skills of their employees without stretching budgets too far is by turning to online training.

According to Kevin Young, general manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Skillsoft and AN IT expert, the impact of technology on learning in recent years has been “amazing”.

He claimed that as well as cutting company costs, online education provides learners with a flexible course schedule that means they are able to attend sessions in a way that suits their individual needs.

In addition, digital training resources can be updated from any location and at any time, so they can keep up with the demands of staff and adapt to changes in knowledge and generational trends.

Whether the learning takes the form of online books, videos, virtual role plays or e-journals, it is a great way for workers to engage in an innovative and informative activity from the comfort of their own homes.

Mr Young said: “Forward-thinking businesses are already embracing these techniques and the expectation is that the use of virtualisation will become commonplace in the near to mid-term.”

He added that moving forward, media rich e-learning content will take a leading role in workplace education and the best programmes will be…………… continues on Virtual College

The future of virtual learning is bright

The future of virtual learning is bright
News from The Information Daily:

Like it or not, the education landscape is changing. There are more types of learner than ever before – part-time, full-time, distance and online. This highlights that people want to learn in different ways which support their preferred learning styles- so it’s important that we ‘meet demand’ and give learners what they want, when they want it. 

Here at AAT, we have adopted and implemented e-learning materials to support students through their studies and training providers in their delivery of AAT qualifications. With a large part of our qualifications already computer based – particularly assessments – it made sense to develop e-learning at the same time.

While it may sound obvious it’s important when developing e-learning material that it be relevant to audiences that need the support. We did research with a large pool of our students which gave us insight into their areas of need and the type of materials that would provide solutions to their problems.

The benefit of developing e-learning tools ourselves is that we are in a strong position to deliver course content quickly, make amends in-house rather than relying on suppliers and, most importantly, react quickly to the changing needs of our students, training providers and members.

There are copious benefits of e-learning. Firstly you can view and monitor the interaction of your e-lear…………… continues on The Information Daily

eLearning: Getting your business ‘ahead of the pack’
News from The Information Daily:

Technology has transformed the way we work, play and live our lives. Take a moment to think about what technology has done for transport. A hundred years ago we travelled by horse and cart – now we can be anywhere in the world within a day. The world is changing at such an incredible pace, and the shift is not only confined to travel.

The impact of technology on learning is equally amazing – impacting the cost, delivery and range of training available and transforming traditional learning and development methods into the proverbial horse and cart. This is especially true for workplace and ‘on the job’ training, which has progressed in leaps and bounds since the introduction of web-based learning.

Long gone are the days when training had to be confined to an all-day classroom event. Many of today’s learners grew up using a PC and have become accustomed to technology-based learning resources. This technology-savvy workforce now demands a more self-directed, technology-based approach to learning, which means that the training method of choice for many organisations is increasingly elearning.

The rise of elearning

Elearning has been a viable replacement for traditional instructor-led training since the late nineties for many corporations and educational institutions. Fast forward to 2013 and as new generations continue to filte…………… continues on The Information Daily

Surviving an FDA Inspection Interview – eLearning Course

Surviving an FDA Inspection Interview – eLearning Course
News from Today’s Medical Developments:

Ever want to take your employees inside an FDA inspection interview to show them exactly what can go wrong – and how to avoid these mistakes?

Sitting across the table from any regulatory inspector is one of your employees’ most nerve-wracking challenges, even for experienced employees. Now you can give them the confidence they need with a new eLearning course.

This time-tested training program walks your employees through the scenarios that can take an inspection off-track – and shows them the right way to handle the situations investigators will throw at them. 

Available in three formats that operate with your own eLearning environment, your employees can login and learn where and when it is convenient for them, and at their own pace. Plus you’ll have the reassurance of knowing that they have learned and mastered all the information provided because each employee is tested at the end of the presentation. 

In this program, employees learn the types of questions and tactics they will face during an inspection, and how to respond correctly.

The Key Issues Covered:

  • How to respond to a question when they do not know or are unsure of the answer.
  • How to handle a lull or gap in the conversation.
  • How to communicate confidence with words and body language.
  • How to respond…………… continues on Today’s Medical Developments

CBF ventures into e-learning
News from Associated Baptist Press – Associated Baptist Press:

An online venture with The Upper Room is seen as a way to obtain discipleship training without travel time and expense.

By Daniel Wallace

The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship today will add the World Wide Web to its stable of ministries and missions with a devotional “e-course.” The digital devotional, which is being offered in partnership with The Upper Room, is titled “God Asks Us Questions with Trevor Hudson.”

The offering gets to the heart of CBF’s effort to nurture believers, said Bo Prosser, coordinator for missional congregations.

“It enhances the ability to grow disciples,” Prosser said. “The bottom line is, we are more about transformation than we are information.”

But there will be plenty of information offered, too. The e-course will feature a compilation of audio clips and video teachings from Hudson, a South African pastor. Online group discussions will be held twice a week along with daily meditations from Hudson, a Methodist pastor from South Africa and author of books including
