Before you get the idea that this will be a blanket endorsement of eLearning as the best option for training or educating people—read on. Most of the time it’s not an either/or situation. Often times, classroom instruction is better for specific subjects, and if the training requires in-person interactions, such as with sales skills, it is more effective to use a classroom setting. Still, there are situations and subjects where eLearning is far more advantageous. Here’s a scenario to consider: Human Resources issues new guidelines for ethics training, which impacts the current classroom course. Ethics training is now mandatory for all 1,500 employees in the first quarter of every year. There are 900 employees in the home office and 600 in locations around North America. What’s the best solution? Classroom training? Probably not. In this case, eLearning is likely to be the best answer. Fortunately, there are some key advantages of eLearning over classroom training for this type of situation.
