Your Most Viable Training Solution
Adjusting to the Times
As computers and the Internet continue to play an ever-increasing role within any corporation — it's not surprising to see employee development systems evolving and being utilized at a similar pace. Managers faced with the task of setting up or streamlining an existing training initiative during these lean times are more than aware of the costs associated with instructor-led or off site training. The bottom line dictates that it's simply not a viable option for a company to send hundreds of learners through such a routine. With the advancements of Learning Management Systems, it has never been easier for managers to plan, design, deliver, administer, and report a company-wide training initiative; for both in-house and off line modalities. A company of any size needs to incorporate a blended learning campaign into their work schedule in order to grow and prosper and eLearning is by far the most cost effective method available.
Getting your eLearning Initiative “Off the Ground”
All that's required to get your eLearning endeavor off the ground is a small investment consisting of; a computer with internet access, a Learning Management System (LMS), course content, and a commitment to delivering structured training to your company's most valuable asset...its workforce.
In order to optimize your web-based training, be aware of what kind of environment you're providing your employees with. Setup an appropriate number of computers — obviously dependant on the size and scope of your company's training needs — in an area or room that's a good distance away from loud production areas and provide high-quality headphones in need be. By giving the users a formal yet comfortable environment, they're more likely to excel in a “self-paced” mode of training.
You'll have to do your homework to find an LMS provider that fits your needs. Some providers will supply you with only the skeleton of a training system and you'll be required to create or insert all of the course content. Other providers will offer a wide array of training topics — ranging from production and maintenance practices to lean manufacturing and health and safety — and you can pick and choose the content that your employees will benefit from.
Another factor you should be address is the ability and ease of adding company-specific information and materials. As stated previously, the efforts and time associated with this step this will depend on which training provider you end up going with. There are providers out there that will actually come to your facility, help you create a detailed plan that caters to your operations and training needs, and will conduct initial and follow up “train the trainer” sessions as well. Others may request an employee spreadsheet and some existing training materials and will take care of these tasks for you, so ask questions and know how much assistance you are going to receive when choosing your eLearning provider.
