eLearning on the Rise!
eLearning trends were on the rise long before the global pandemic. When executed correctly, eLearning can not only be a more convenient option as it enables dispersed teams to connect and complete vital learning content. But it can also produce better learning results in terms of completion rates, and more importantly knowledge retention. In fact, Brandon Hall and Rosenberg (2001) found that eLearning can increase knowledge retention by up to 60% simply because it’s more engaging than traditional learning.
