Ten Top Reasons to Use E-learning

Hello! And welcome to a new Ten Top Tips from the Clinical Support Team here at ECG.

Ten Top Reasons to Use E-Learning

1. Flexibility

Using e-learning gives you the freedom to learn at your own convenience, and at a pace that is right for you.

2. Consistency

E-Learning ensures that you receive the same level of training as everyone else.

3. Up to date

The course content can be refreshed and updated whenever needed, ensuring you are receiving the latest training.

4. Tracks your progress

Progress indicators show you where you are in the course and help to keep you focused

5. Money saving

E-Learning reduces time away from the workplace and eliminates the need for travel.

6. Time saving

Research indicates that e-learning reduces learning time by at least 25% to 60% when compared to traditional learning

7. High learning retention

Blended learning (e-learning followed by a practical assessment) result in a higher knowledge retention rate

8. Reduces of the carbon footprint

The need for printing out paper-based assessments and travelling to a training venue are greatly reduced.

9. Freedom to fail

No one likes to fail in a classroom full of other people.  e-learning lets you fail without fear and in the worst case, you can always begin again. Something you can’t always do in class.

10. It’s the way ahead

E-Learning / education apps are the third most popular categories in app stores.
