Custom eLearning drives education in commerce

Education specialists at iLearn, a provider of ONSITE instructor-led and ONLINE elearning training methodologies, say custom eLearning has emerged as a successful and increasingly popular methodology to education and training requirements.

Custom eLearning course development is the term applied to the process of creating and converting of existing instructor-led course content into an electronic learning format.

There is significance to this, particularly for companies that deliver repetitive training interventions such as inductions, and, policies & procedures, for example, says Richard Rayne, Managing Director, iLearn.

The service provider has a comprehensive portfolio of online learning solutions that address elearning requirements of the corporate market, across all sectors of business. This includes Learner Management System, Generic course content such as IT & Business Skills and custom course development.

Custom eLearning forms part of its services offering, one that addresses many of the issues experienced by businesses in training delivery strategies and successful rollout.

“These businesses require more scale and flexibility and shifting the course delivery of an existing Instructor-Led-Training format into a far more exciting elearning experience. Online learning provides students with far more flexibility to accessing learning at their own time and pace, and organisations can more accurately assess the impact of learning using built in pre- and post assessments. Clients also then own the course content and have the flexibility to distribute it as much as they like,” says Rayne.

According to Rayne the option to customise eLearning course content has been available within the training and education market for some time - however, it is only recently that the technology has advanced to make the option truly accessible and practical.

“The result is that development has become far more agile and quicker to market”, he says.

Rayne says the benefits associated with custom eLearning include a significant cost reduction in not having to employ teams of trainers and administrators to deliver ‘production-line’ type training and evolving the training experience into something that is more progressive and modern.
