While most of us think of training in terms of the formal classroom, learning center, or controlled WEB access, below are a few other uses for e-Learning that will help you get the maximum value from your training initiatives. (courtesy of G. H. Kaiz, co-Founder, ITC Learning).

                                              Engineer Training

  •  All too often, new graduate engineers are strong in theory but lack practical application experience. Yet these people are asked to write procedures, monitor equipment performance, design new systems and inspect maintenance activities.  By using e-Learning, these engineers can quickly get the applications experience that they did not receive in college.

                                                The Missed Class

  • Trainees are always missing classes, and the solution of one-on-one instructor to trainee is extremely costly. In the situation where large classes are required to train large numbers of students, e-Learning offers a cost effective solution for picking up those students who missed classes or couldn’t be scheduled to attend.

                                      Multicraft/Cross Craft Training

  •  As “right-sizing” of the workforce continues at the plant level, each worker needs to be able to do more, either with expanded capabilities within a given craft or the ability to handle multiple craft assignments. E-Learning can be used to define curriculum plans and sequences that can ensure “home craft” competence and then expand into a second or third craft area.

                                               Just-in-time Training

  •  In a typical training program, the delivery is front-end loaded so that all the training an individual needs is done at the beginning of the assignment to a typical job. The trainee is expected to remember everything covered in the training.  The reality of the situation is that the understanding of what isn’t used on a regular basis deteriorates over time and is only partially remembered.  By having a library of materials available online, information and simulation can be accessed just prior to job assignment.  In many ways the courses become job aids, assisting in the performance of assigned tasks.

These and many other benefits are yours with e-Learning.  You’ll be constrained only by the limits of your imagination. 

Full motion/optional audio e-Learning makes the best investment your organization can make in today’s training environment.  And, it gets even better when, in addition to computer access, your e-Learning is also available on tablets and smartphones.
