If you take a class in the real world and need a refresher, you better hope that you took good notes. Otherwise, you’re out of luck. That’s not the case with eLearning. With eLearning you can continue to have access to the online content and resources to brush up on what you learned.
eLearning includes many online technologies. When you incorporate tools that allow collaboration and conversation, you can capture organizational knowledge that is available for future learners.
The foundation of a learning community is built on sharing what you know with others. Forums or wikis add value to eLearning.
People want opportunities to grow. eLearning courses allow colleagues to explore other opportunities in your organization.
