David Wilson, managing director of e-learning consultancy eLearnity, saide-learning is not the complete answer to companies’ training needs, and that itshould be combined with traditional classroom learning. He said, “Learning systems might reduce travel and delivery costs. Buta big company developing the right system is a £1 million project, so thesaving is not that great. “The advantage of e-learning is the advantage of being able to reachemployees on the road at any time.” HR professionals were warned not to let their training managers – who seee-learning as a threat – slow down its implementation. Neither should employers passively offer access to e-learning on the companyintranet. He said, “Do not be lazy and put learning facilities on the company’sintranet and say that X amount of employees have access to this trainingfacility. “The danger of doing this – and I have already seen it – is that twoyears down the line employees will lack key skills and knowledge.” Related posts:No related photos.
