Elearning... A Friend or Foe?

According to the latest research over in the U.K., an increasing number of firms... approx. 200 firms comprising of 1000 individuals - have recognized and realized the many possibilities and benefits of elearning.

Actually, the research found that 80 per cent of employers thought e-learning was uniquely accessible, cost-effective and flexible. Hmmm, sound familiar?

If you're new to our blog, feel free to take a gander below and catch up on some of our prior posts. :-)

Here were a few other "nuggets" from the research report:

  1. Elearning provided for responding rapidly to changes in their marketplace.
  2. Accessed quickly, widely and cost-effectively by staff regardless of where they are and their hours of work.
  3. Electronic delivery increased both staff productivity and motivation.

That... ladies and gentlemen is the essence of CruiseControlTraining. I couldn't have said it any better myself.

You need to embrace the newest training technologies. They can help!

Elearning empowers a training department with speed, flexibility and renewed focus.

How do you put a price tag on that?

Remember... in the scheme of things, the question isn't really - "how can I afford elearning?" The question really is... "how can you not?"

Happy Valentine's Day.

The E-Learning "Yellow Pages" Assessment Tool

Now this is pretty interesting.... has created a self assessment tool that allows students/trainees the ability to see if the concept of "elearning" is right for them.

The online assessment simply asks questions based on the current behaviors and interests of the prospective student. The assessment results will also offer some other tips based on the user's answers - for example if time management skills or computer skills should be improved or addressed, and it provides resources to also better those skills.

Pretty Neat! Opinions? If you're wondering if elearning is right for you... why don't you hop on over and try it out. AND IF YOU DO... please stop back and let me know what you thought. Thanks!

Newswire / Press Release: E-Learning Yellow Pages Announces Self Assessment - Education/e-Learning/Training | NewswireToday: " now offers a self-assessment for those thinking of learning on-line to find out if distance learning is the right choice. By answering 20 simple questions helps prospective distance learning students if on-line learning will be the beneficial method of delivery."

Best Always,
