Traditional training programs are rapidly falling away. Instead, eLearning is going nowhere. It’s the new deal, and it’s staying around. As technology continues to pick up speed, we’re going to see more and more traditional forms of education and training hit the online arena.
What’s shocking, though, is that a lot of companies are still reluctant to get on board with eLearning, despite the incredible power that it can offer.
Of course, all organizations have those who are more traditional in their approach to training, and there’s still a lot to be said for ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ Not to mention the fact that Instructor Led Programs can be a crucial part of a company’s organizational culture. On the other side, there are the digital-savvy pioneers always looking to take advantage of the next high-tech innovation. The problem is, these employees are often younger, in more junior positions, and don’t yet have the clout to make big-picture decisions.
So what we’re going to do in this post is give a nice little list of why and how traditional HR professionals can change their old school training mindset and adopt a digital one instead. Specifically, we'll be talking about adopting an eLearning mindset. As they commonly say in business, it's the mindset that determines the thinking and the thinking determines the actions taken.
