eLearning and the digital future

eLearning and the digital future

We’re proud to announce that for the second year in a row we featured in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50. The 2012 awards coincide with the latest paper in the Building the Lucky Country series by Deloitte Australia. This year’s topic, digital disruption, is extremely relevant for anyone using or considering elearning as a part of their corporate solution.

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 is a program that recognises public and private Australian technology companies who have achieved the fastest rates of annual revenue growth over a three year period. You can read more about the award in our blog article from last year.

Digital Disruption

Even if you’re not familiar with Clayton M. Christensen’s The Innovator’s Dilemma, the notion of disruptive technology is relatively intuitive in this digital age.  Digital disruption – Short fuse, big bang? is the newest paper in Deloitte’s Building the Lucky Country series. It considers the magnitude of digital transformation within Australian business and government, and the implications that the transformation is having, and will continue to have. After reading this paper, we wanted to share some key points about how digital disruption can work for your business through elearning.

The case for elearning

Many businesses are dealing with digital disruption and questioning how it will affect their organisation, but equally important is examining how, ‘a business can realise its potential across a spectrum of digital opportunities.’

Staff training is one area highlighted in the Deloitte paper:

“In Australia, businesses spend an average of 1.5 per cent of revenue on training each year. Well-designed online training programs can reduce these costs as courses can be deployed on a wider scale . . . [and] make it possible to provide more targeted and flexible approaches to training by reducing workers’ attendance of duplicate or unnecessary sessions.”

We couldn’t agree more with Deloitte’s assessment. We know elearning can reduce business costs in both time and money, and it also offers an effective way of ensuring organisation-wide training. An elearning solution can reduce:

  • loss of productivity due to training
  • the cost of employees attending training
  • trainer related expenses
  • resource related expenses, and
  • compliance administration costs.

The e3Learning solution

Our unique Adaptics technology further reduces time and costs by allowing individual training to be modified according to the requirements of each user. In refresher courses we reward learners for retaining knowledge and reduce their training time. This means learners only sit through topics where they have a deficiency but still maintain compliance expectations.

Together for the digital future

Digital disruption is full of challenges and opportunities in every industry, but the phenomenal elearning growth in recent years suggests online training is a worthwhile solution that is here for the long term. We are inspired and challenging ourselves to develop as an organisation, and our growing list of awards and accomplishments confirms we are on the right track. Making the Deloitte Fast 50 for the second year in a row, and reading their case for elearning has strengthened our commitment to provide quality digital solutions for our partners and clients well into the future.
