The benefits of e-Learning

All, e-Learning No Comments

We pride ourselves in offering first class PRINCE2 e-learning training courses at really affordable prices.  But what are the advantages of e-Learning over classroom-based training?

Lower cost

With easy online access to e-Learning course material, travel and accommodation costs are eliminated, providing a significant saving over traditional classroom based training. You can access your pre-course material, course modules, exercises & case studies, quizzes and simulated exams online at a time and place that suits you. e-Learning can deliver significant savings against an organisations’ training budget.

Faster pace of learning

You can learn at your own pace, without being held up by other learners. If you need to go back through a partiular module, you are free to do so. There is less structured downtime (lunches, scheduled breaks, introductions, etc.). You can decide on your own schedule and with less (zero) travel time, meaning that you can start and stop the training when it suits you. You can skip the parts of the course that you are already familiar with and focus on those areas where you need a better understanding. Studies have show that this can mean the learning can progress through a course up to 50% faster.

More accessible

Our e-Learning courses are self-contained, meaning you can access everything you need online at any time, and from anywhere in the world. This can mean that indiviuals that would not normally be able to free up the time from a busy work schedule to attend a 5 day course, can still take the training in a highly efficient and effective way.

More productive

Employees can fit e-Learning courses around peaks in workload, and organisations can focus their learning programmes to align with downtime.

Interactive

Quizzes and exercises pop up throughout our e-Learning course material, ensuring that learners remain enaged in the learning process. Simulated exams provide the learner with a chance to put their learning into practice in the safety of their own home. Individual feedback provides clear guidance to the learner on areas to revisit.

Freedom to fail

Learning inevitably involves some failure along the way. However, no one really likes to fail in a classroom full of other people. e-Learning allows you to explore ideas without that fear.

Continued access to resources

Our e-Learning courses provide a full 12 months access to our e-Learning course modules and all supporting course material, including quizzes, exercises and simulated exams. This means that you are free to revisit the material at any time during this period. This can be invaluable if you wish to brush up on your skills when you are back in the office putting your training into practice!

Environmentally friendly

Our online e-Learning courses are an ideal way for individuals and organisations to reduce their carbon footprint. A study by the Open University showed that e-learning (distance learning) courses consumed almost 90% less energy and 85% fewer CO2 emissions per student that traditional classroom based training courses. The main savings were attibuted to less travel, and that using a computer from home was far more energy efficient. e-Learning can also save trees by reducing the amount of paper required. All supporting material for our e-learning courses is accessible online, and we have developed computer based issues tracking, and online feedback tools. We also make use of social networking tools online to increase learner interaction and communication. All of these approaches help us all to reduce the environmental impact.

Consistent message

Eliminates inconsistencies introduced by a number of different trainers delivering the same course material in a slightly different way. For company based delivery, this consistent message can often be critical.

Improved retention

Our e-learning courses provide a rich interactive learning experience. Activities and regular personalised feedback help learners to retain information which translates into excellent learning outcomes.

Sharing

We encourage the use of social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter to communicate with other learners. Learners have direct access to our Facebook and Twitter pages direclty from the course modules. Sharing resources and insights can provide a much richer learning experience for everyone.
