How an eLearning Strategy Can Help You.
eLearning helps your community complete education and training objectives with greater ease and flexibility than with traditional classroom-based learning. This cutting-edge education tool can help your organization unite and train its employees in an increasingly global workforce. When an eLearning strategy is used internally, it will promote employee retention and externally, it works to increase customer retention.
The Challenges of eLearning
One of the greatest challenges in implementing eLearning is creating high-quality, customized content in a timely manner and in a cost-effective way. The other is engaging employees and customers with training or communication content that is emotionally relevant to them. Successful eLearning content has the right balance of content that is compelling and that emotionally connects with your employees and customers.
Oftentimes, organizations create eLearning content quickly capturing large quantities of content without an eLearning strategy. Due to tight deadlines, this content is quickly turned around and often compromises quality. This leads to a lack of consistency and direction of content, which can confuse the end user. In addition to content, there are numerous eLearning tools and platforms out there for various learning preferences. This requires a separate evaluation of your employees and customers to ensure that the eLearning tool or platform meets their needs.
Short-term eLearning Solutions
If you are experiencing any of these challenges, there are many solutions you can turn to in the short-term. You can hire multiple freelancers to create and edit the content. In addition, you can use an internal team that deals with production, a project management person or team, and quality assurance professionals. While these may be lower cost solutions in the short term, they will end up costing you money, time, and quality in the long run.
However, these solutions are not sustainable for your organization in the long-term. When it comes down to it, the root of the challenge is the content and platforms themselves. eLearning is not going to be successful in your organization unless it has a corporate communication strategy. Then it needs to be deployed properly to ensure that it resonates with the end user.
Long-term eLearning Solutions
Your long-term eLearning solution is three-fold. The first part is to create a corporate communication strategy that addresses the quantity, quality, timeliness, cost, and strategy that businesses face.
The second is to execute the strategy with a systemized process utilizing the communication tools best suited to achieve the company’s business objectives. This is paired with utilizing the right platform that adheres to your audiences’ learning behaviors.
And the third is to create initial foundational content and continuous content creation as needed.
When you have all three of these parts working in harmony, it will give you a sustainable approach to creating and managing eLearning content.
