Why many organizations have not made the change to e-learning – yet
by Latheefa Gangat
It would seem obvious that documents whose contents need to be understood by staff, for legal compliance reasons and for efficient operation, should already be converted to trackable e-learning courses. Why, then, do so many organizations persist in using Word, PPT, and PDF formats to present their valuable content?
Pitfalls to embracing e-learning
Cast your mind to your company’s document repository. Likely you have hundreds, if not thousands, of documents – from SOPs to compliance and regulatory documents, employee agreements and company policies, not to mention existing training and development material – that have accumulated over the years and that you know would be more practical in the form of e-learning courses that are accessible, engaging, and trackable. At the same time, you shudder at the thought of navigating the e-learning process. After all, the normal custom development cycle for developing e-learning courses can take many months and cost quite a lot. And then there’s the concern that in development, information would not be translated as you wish. These are some of the key reasons e-learning has been largely reserved for a small percentage of the market – mainly, those organizations interested in high-end training in business skills and legal compliance.
