Implementing Online Learning

First – understand and respect the complexities of online learning

Online learning is high technology. It is right up there with software applications, network servers, and above all “The Web”. You don’t need to become an expert in all of these things to lead a successful online implementation project, but you do need to understand what is needed and how to assemble the right team and resources to ensure success.

Here are some things you’ll want to know and questions you’ll want to ask to prepare yourself:

  • It augments the benefits of training: It is well known that learning is enhanced when the same concept is presented in different ways. This is the principle behind ‘Blended Learning’. After presenting the concepts in an instructor led face to face training session, the knowledge retention is significantly improved with the addition of a new method in the learning process, through elearning or gamification. It delivers a much richer training experience and helps employees to retain the new information better by applying on different platforms like elearning and gamification.
  • It reduces and simplifies logistics: Each method of training has its pros and cons. Face to face training when led by an accomplished trainer can achieve profound results; however, managing the logistics of all the participants can be a nightmare. But when the live programs are reduced and the training is supported by video conferences and elearning, then the impact is
