  • Choosing an eLearning Provider 800-566-3159 |
  • A quick history lesson.
  • In 1995, just 4% of U.S. companies used online learning.
  • By 2011, that number had climbed to over 77%.
  • And it’s growing rapidly.
  • Corporate training is nearly a $200 billion dollar industry.
  • eLearning is $56.2 billion of that.
  • And its effectiveness hasn’t gone unnoticed.
  • eLearning increases knowledge retention from 25% to 60%.
  • After transitioning to eLearning, IBM trimmed the cost of training by over $400 million dollars a year.
  • It’s cost effective.
  • 85% of every dollar used in traditional classroom training was spent on just delivering it.
  • Not to mention…
  • 41% of employees will look to leave their job within one year if the training program is poor.
  • So, as a company…
  • Where do you begin?
  • What should you be looking for in an eLearning provider?
  • From course selection…
  • To course length…
  • To course functionality and much more…
  • Here are 6 things to keep in mind as you select an eLearning company.
  • 1. Try Before You Buy
  • You don’t buy a car without a test drive, so why should you take on an eLearning provider without a thorough demo?
  • Request a Demo
  • As you watch, does each course provide a clear training narrative from start to finish?
  • Are the speakers communicating the message in a clear and coherent manner?
  • Do courses effectively communicate the goals for the learner and offer quick recaps to help them retain the information?
  • Does the LMS track the metrics you need it to?
  • Does the LMS work seamlessly? How quickly can any outstanding issues be corrected?
  • 2. Must Be Easy to Administer
  • Not every employee will be under one roof.
  • You might have salespeople telecommuting to their next meeting right now, and let’s say they need a refresher on the latest updates to your product.
  • Or a salesperson just closed a deal with a new sales tactic, and wants to share with their manager and the team?
  • In either case, you want a training platform that allows your staff the ability to…
  • Record.
  • Upload.
  • And share content among the team with ease.
  • Furthermore, can employees assign courses or create their own groups for select individuals or departments within the company?
  • 3. Is Content Updated Enough?
  • Are compliance courses on discrimination and anti- harassment current?
  • What about the latest tips on sales, leadership development, or new courses on product knowledge or motivational techniques?
  • Get a feel for not just the course library, but how relevant the courses are to your learners.
  • 4. Options?
  • What about the variety of learning tools?
  • Can you customize courses specific to your company’s needs?
  • How large is the off-the-shelf library?
  • Can you personalize that off- the-shelf content?
  • What about business book summaries?
  • Determine the resources, and how they’ll contribute.
  • 5. Average Length of Courses
  • Companies already deal with time management issues across the board.
  • A recent study found that 69% of employees waste time at work, with 34% of that group admitting they waste nearly 30 minutes a day.
  • So having a time management course that runs an hour long or more doesn’t make sense.
  • eLearning courses must be concise.
  • A good measuring stick for how long a course should be?
  • 10 Minutes or less.
  • Don’t try and push content that’s longer than that – especially with the employee’s current workload.
  • 6. Instructional Design Credentials
  • You want a company that can work with you and help put together the right performance improvement tools.
  • You need a company that can help research and create consistently engaging courses from start to finish.
  • Are design and graphics aesthetically pleasing and consistent throughout?
  • Do bullet points and other visual cues complement the content and speaker?
  • Do custom course outlines identify real needs that will resonate more with the learner?
  • Because eLearning is about helping your employees achieve more success. It’s training that identifies problems and provides effective measures.
  • And it’s training that’s made to help your company achieve a better ROI.
