E-Learning design

Using a variety of tools we are able to design and develop a one off, or suite of e-learning training programs or information sessions. E-learning is a great way to engage your learners! It also yields many organisational benefits:

Improved training expenditure – Producing training resources is time consuming whether it’s online or face-to-face. With e-learning, each time your course is accessed your return on investment improves because you are dividing the fixed production costs by number of uses.

Reduced material costs – There will be an immediate reduction in ‘hard’ resources. Things like text books and folders.

Increased productivity – E-Learning is not bound by geography or time. You can control training’s impact on your people’s productivity by training people during ‘down’ times. In addition with the current economies around the world, we’re asking people to do more with less! E-Learning is a great way to give your people the skills and tools needed to enhance their performance.

Standardisation – You more than likely have great facilitators, but that’s no guarantee that the courses are presented the same across sessions. E-Learning allows you to create a standardised process and consistency in the delivery of the content. It also compresses delivery time.

 

E-Learning supports the learners development

Real time access – Live learning events require the learner to arrange their schedule around the training. With E-Learning the learning can be scheduled around your everyday demands and responsibilities.

Freedom to fail – Real learning requires some failure… No one likes to fail in a classroom full of colleagues or people they’ve never met before. E-Learning let’s you fail without FEAR. This encourages exploration and testing of ideas.

Personalised Learning – Learners want control. E-Learning allows you to offer control to the learners in a way that classroom learning doesn’t.

 

Check out our demo E-Learning information course based on an organisational policy. The E-Learning demo provides the knowledge, and also tests the learners understanding. E-Learning reaches out to learners at all levels and supports your HR function removing any ambiguity around complex policies and procedures.

Business Skills, Employability Skills & Soft Skills

Employability or Business skills are the skills that are needed to get most jobs. They also help you stay in a job and work your way to the top.

There will be some job specific skills that an employer will look for in addition to the generic eight skills that we can support you with.

1. Communication

You have to be a good talker and maybe also a good writer (depending on the job). You have to be confident about speaking to people face-to-face or over the phone, and you may also need to write well enough to be understood in emails and memos.

2. Teamwork

You have to be good at working with people. This means both your workmates and other people that come into contact with your organisation.

3. Problem Solving

You have to be able to find solutions when faced with difficulties or set-backs. Even if you can’t think of a solution straight away, you need to have a logical process for figuring things out.

4. Initiative and Enterprise

You need to be able to think about the bigger picture and the future of the organisation you’re working for. Employers will value your ability to think creatively and to make improvements to the way things are.

5. Planning and Organising

You need to be able to organise yourself, plan project timelines and meet deadlines.

6. Self-Management

You need to be able to get on with your work without someone having to check up on you every five minutes. You should also be able to stay on top of your own deadlines and be able to delegate tasks to make sure things get done on time.

7. Learning

You should want to learn new things and be able to pick them up quickly. There are likely to be some changes to your job and to the structure of your workplace while you are working there. You should be able to take on new tasks and to meet the needs of a changing workplace.

8. Technology

Most jobs these days require you to use some form of technology.  You’ll need to know how to use a computer and how to touch-type for most office jobs, but there are other types of technology that you might need to be familiar with depending on the industry you work in.
