Revolutionary Learning Technology Solution
What is eLearning?
eLearning ("E-Learning") is a learning system based on formalised teaching but with the help of electronic resources is known as E-learning. While teaching can be based in or out of the classrooms, the use of computers and the Internet forms the major component of E-learning.
How to Deliver eLearning
Whether you want to use eLearning to keep your employees up to date on company policies, or to help your customers better understand your product, there are a number of eLearning methods you can use.
Using an LMS
A learning management system (LMS) is a software application that is used to deliver online training. A great LMS will go beyond this, by providing you with the features and support you need to execute your eLearning strategy perfectly.
Selecting an LMS can be daunting at first, but analyzing your training needs and defining your requirements, should narrow your search significantly. There are several different types of LMS’s that you can choose from, such as cloud-based, open source, commercial, and installation-based.
Cloud-based LMS’s have become the default for online learning as they allow you to quickly create courses, enroll users easily, and accurately report on learner progress.
A good cloud-based LMS should allow you to easily scale your training delivery and be backed by a superb customer success team whose sole objective is to ensure you succeed.
To those new to the eLearning world, SCORM seems like a confusing concept. But we’ll break it down here to help you better understand what it is.
The good news is that using SCORM provides your learner with a more interactive, engaging experience, and allows you greater control over the time spent on your courses.
SCORM is an acronym that stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model. But don’t let that bewilder you!
Basically, SCORM is a set of technical specifications that were developed to provide a common approach to how eLearning content is developed and used. It standardizes the way in which eLearning courses are created and launched. Most SCORM courses are developed using popular authoring tools and therefore follow a similar structure.
To use SCORM in your eLearning, you need to ensure that you have a SCORM-compliant LMS. Be aware however that SCORM adds extra expense to eLearning delivery due to the cost of using an authoring tool.
However, the benefits of using SCORM within your eLearning courses makes it worth the investment.
Over the past couple of years, xAPI has become the popular new standard for delivering online training.
xAPI is often described as the next evolution of SCORM, as it has redefined some of the fundamental practices of tracking learning experiences. It adds extra performance to SCORM and removes a lot of the restrictions of older specifications.
It offers a level of flexibility that suits today’s fast-paced world. Moderns learners want to learn on-the-go; while commuting to work, or while grabbing a coffee.
xAPI has the ability to track these learning experiences, whether they happen within an LMS or not, in one simple, consistent format. xAPI will essentially give you a holistic understanding of your learners’ experience.
However, xAPI isn’t without limitations. Some organizations misinterpret it’s capabilities and think that using Tin Cin will result in beautifully designed course content. This isn’t the case. The xAPI spec doesn’t improve UX or UI, and won’t modify the design of a course in any way. xAPI only governs how data is tracked and stored.
Types of eLearning Training
People use eLearning for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s to develop new skills or learn remotely, the convenience and accessibility eLearning offers is huge. Here, we’ll explain the 4 types of eLearning training that LearnUpon helps you deliver.
Employee training is the most frequent type of eLearning organizations use an LMS for. Organizations utilize employee training for numerous reasons, such as onboarding new hires and improving employee performance. Training employees using an LMS formalizes training delivery and makes it more efficient.
Compared to traditional training, eLearning more effectively encourages professional development by promoting knowledge and an eLearning culture. Furthermore, your LMS should allow you to create exams, run reports and gather feedback so that you can continuously assess and improve training performance.
Compliance training is a necessity for most organizations. It informs your employees on the laws or regulations applicable to their role and industry. Compliance training is mandatory and tackles topics such as health, safety, and dignity in the workplace. Some examples of compliance training include:
- Diversity Training
- HR Law
- Anti-Harassment Training
Running a smooth compliance training program helps to minimize the risk of non-compliance and maintains your reputation. Your employees will also benefit from a safer, more productive workplace. Furthermore, keeping up-to-date with changing legislation and amending your training materials is made easier with eLearning via a reliable LMS.
