E-learning is the final frontier of the training world. E-learning platforms are interactive, extremely user-friendly, and can be moulded to suit any topic. And that’s not all: they’re also revolutionising the business training world.
What is e-learning?
E-learning involves teaching individuals using video streaming and/or videoconferencing systems. E-learning helps trainers to assess results while also facilitating remote interaction between students and teachers and encouraging active involvement in training activities.
E-learning platforms for companies: why use them?
Corporate e-learning platforms can provide employees with the educational materials they need to acquire, improve, or expand the skills they require to better perform their work tasks.
E-learning services and their benefits
The answer to “what is e-learning used for?” is actually very simple. It is used to train large numbers of people over a short space of time using services that meet a range of needs. But what are the some of the main benefits they have to offer?
Conducting meetings on company e-learning platforms allows people to connect with their colleagues in multiple different offices at the same time, including people who work from home, all while saving on energy and resources.
This facilitates employee participation in activities, while also encouraging interaction between trainers and employees.
Delivering streaming courses online
It is possible to divide training content into individual modules on e-learning platforms. These modules can then be arranged into courses structured to meet specific training needs. Individual modules can also be added to several courses at once, meaning that content does not have to be manually “duplicated”, thus saving on time and resources. Streaming platforms such as YouTube can also be used to upload content and facilitate access to training materials.
E-learning platforms also provide trainers with the tools they need to assess learning and to encourage the cognitive improvement of course attendees. Corrections can also be automated given that the process takes place in a digital environment.
E-learning translation services
E-learning platforms often host content intended for multilingual communities, such as employees working for multinational companies. Sometimes learning can be hindered if not all course attendees speak the same language. As such, it’s often a necessity to translate educational content.
EuroTrad provides e-learning translation services and is fully aware that great translations need to be appropriate to the content and context in which they will be delivered.
