What are the benefits of a learning platform?

E-learning can be great for your organisation. You know what you need, but you’re not quite sure of the overall benefits of a learning platform. And there’s no point implementing a learning platform if you don’t know how it will benefit your company!

Learning platforms are extremely straightforward and simple to use. They guide your users through individual learning journeys and keep them engaged in the learning process.

They’re incredibly easy to use for administrators too! The admin of your learning platform will be intuitive, so creating courses, checking learner progress, and adding new users couldn’t be easier.

Cost effective

Gone are the days of paying for employees to attend external training days. With e-learning, say goodbye to travel, food and hotel expenses piling up. In addition to the actual cost of the face-to-face training itself.

Learning platforms can help manage these costs and usually reduce them. E-learning enables staff to learn from the office, home or when on the move, saving on travel expenses.

Couple this with the ability to create a course that can be reused and recycled, and you’ll find that a learning platform can work out a lot cheaper in the long run.

Exceptionally flexible

The world is constantly changing and ensuring staff are kept up to date with the latest innovations and compliance is essential for you to remain competitive.

A learning platform allows you to amend, update and edit courses or create completely new ones whenever they’re needed. This flexibility alone makes a learning platform invaluable when it comes to remaining up to date in a cost-effective way.

Managing staff progress

A learning platform offers you the ability to keep on top of staff progress and step-in when needed.

Whether employees are struggling with a particular skill or course and require additional support, or if you notice a team member is excelling in a certain area, your learning platform provides you with a complete oversight of learning and progress.

Improving that all important work-life balance

Not everyone enjoys the thought of having to undertake training in an unfamiliar environment. Leaving your family, travelling, and cancelling meetings and plans can all culminate in a real invasion of your personal life.

A learning platform removes the stresses associated with traditional training. They enable staff to manage their own learning whether in work or at home, they can learn when and where suits them.
