E-learning, the use of electronic technology to provide training and education, is becoming increasingly prevalent as a method of delivering both personal and work-based learning.
The prevalence of laptops, tablets and smartphones has made it possible for people to access learning when and where it is convenient to them – on the train or bus to work, in the office or, in Hastings, even on the beach!
Berry Winter, Managing Director of local e-learning provider Cherrystone Ltd said: “People are starting to find that a few minutes of ‘bite-size’ learning, at a time and location which is convenient to them, can be just as beneficial as a full day’s training course.”
Many large organisations, ranging from local authorities to multi-national organisations, are now using e-learning as part of a ‘blended learning’ approach, combining online learning with traditional face to face methods. This blended approach saves money and time through utilising technology, while retaining the benefits of face-to-face contact through shorter and sharper workshops and courses.
E-learning can be easy, engaging and exciting and is a new way of learning that many can appreciate. If you are looking to learn new skills or want insight and ideas on how to handle on workplace based situations then this could be the easiest way to learn these things.
