Scalability, cost-savings, flexibility, engagement, the benefits of e-learning are countless when compared to traditional classroom methods. E-learning, or online learning, is changing how we view education and development in schools and in the workplace. In organizations, it can help your business stay competitive by easily empowering your employees with knowledge and new skills.
But how do you actually go about creating these online courses? Many L&D managers outsource or have an in-house e-learning specialist, however, this can often be an expensive and time-consuming process. These e-learning specialists often don’t have the domain knowledge and must engage in a slow back and forth process working with subject matter experts (SMEs). The typical time to market for a course created in this way is three months or longer. This lengthy process also means that course content often becomes outdated - sometimes even before it’s published.
However, easy to use e-learning authoring tools have changed all this. Instead, they enable Employee-generated Learning. Subject matter experts from across your business can create courses quickly and easily. Your e-learning specialists are then freed up to ensure the didactic quality of every course.
Employee-generated Learning paired with a user-friendly e-learning authoring tool empowers your organization to vastly increase the number of e-learning courses you’re able to create. T-Mobile, for example, were able to increase their training output by 5 times, while only using 25% of their L&D resource.
