Why e-Learning?

  • It’s convenient – training can be done when it is most convenient for the user, rather than on a predetermined basis when “live” classroom training is available
  • It’s available 24/7 – training can be done at any time of the day or night
  • It’s affordable – cost is much lower than traditional training and travel costs are eliminated (IRS estimates that 70% of its training budget is spent on travel, room rentals and lost productivity)
  • There’s no or minimal loss of productivity – unlike traditional training where users generally take off 1/2 or a full day of work, e-learning can be done in shorter chunks during downtime and minimizes loss of productivity
  • It’s a one-year license – students have an entire year to complete training and can go back to the material as a refresher as needed
  • Learning is sustained – companies can keep their diversity initiative fresh and interesting for users by assigning e-learning modules over a period of time (for example, one of our clients assigns one course per quarter)
  • It’s measurable – pre and post tests that are imbedded provide true measures of retention unlike traditional training where a person sitting in a classroom does not necessarily translate into learning
  • Its anonymity ensures higher levels of comfort in dealing with tough issues – users tell us that they felt more comfortable being vulnerable and exposed when dealing with their own stereotypes when they were interacting with the computer rather than in a room full of people that they don’t know

High return on investment can deliver the following results:

  • Reduced barriers and improved productivity
  • Employee retention
  • Improved diversity of workforce
  • Improved diversity awareness and knowledge
  • Minimized training costs
  • Maximized training reach
  • Maximized training effectiveness
