Digital learning on the rise

More and more companies are making use of digital learning environments. The type of training to be digitalized first usually involves recurring training sessions, for example induction or training organized for large groups, such as data security training or ethical guidelines.

Smartphones have made digital learning even easier, because all you need is a phone. Digital learning solutions have also become easier to use and more cost-efficient, making them viable for smaller businesses.

Lower training costs and flexible course timetables

Online learning enables much more cost-efficient training, because online courses can be scaled up to large groups of people, or to use the same training material for a longer period.

Another advantage is that participation in online learning does not require travel or simultaneous participation; everyone can complete training on their smartphone or computer whenever they prefer.

Real-time information on completed training and the level of competence

Online training completion data it is compiled on a learning platform, showing at a glance which courses people have taken. Real-time reporting helps the user to see whether staff are trained to the required level and any courses have not been completed.

We also receive more detailed analytics about courses and results, such as a breakdown of answers and items which participants had trouble with. This helps to make future training more efficient or organize tailored training on subjects where problems have been identified.

Systematic and equal training for all

Training in an online learning environment can be made available when needed, ensuring that people are trained at the appropriate time. Online courses also ensure equal training for all, as quality of training does not vary depending on the supervisors’ skills.

Some companies highlight digital learning environments in their marketing, informing customers that the company trains its staff systematically and efficiently, and that staff must achieve a certain level of competence.
