When it comes to embracing eLearning, many organisations are hesitant. They are concerned that focusing on online learning would lead to inferior programs that would devalue the learning experience and overwhelm learners. We believe that the exact opposite is true.

Instead, eLearning empowers your L&D professionals and subject matter experts to share their expertise directly with those who need it. It removes complex and long-winded development stages so programs can be easily created and tailored to learners’ needs, resulting in superior courses and enhanced learning outcomes.

Now let’s take a deeper look at the advantages of in-house eLearning and how it can empower L&D professionals.

Customisation and flexibility

In-house eLearning development empowers L&D professionals to tailor content to their organisation’s specific needs. They know the audience and their needs better than anyone and pre-packaged solutions may not always align with the company’s unique culture, industry requirements, or learning objectives. With in-house expertise, L&D teams can create customised courses that resonate with employees, increasing engagement and retention rates.

Cost efficiency

Outsourcing eLearning content development can be expensive, especially for ongoing training needs. By cultivating in-house eLearning skills, organisations can significantly reduce costs associated with hiring external vendors. This cost-efficiency allows L&D departments to allocate resources more effectively, investing in other critical aspects of training and development.

Real-time updates

In-house eLearning professionals can respond swiftly to changing business needs. They can update content in real time to reflect industry shifts, compliance updates, or new product launches. This ensures that training materials are always current and aligned with organisational goals and can be particularly useful in areas with high compliance demands.

Enhanced quality control

Maintaining quality control of eLearning content is crucial. With in-house eLearning, your experts have an intimate understanding of an organisation’s standards and can easily ensure that every module meets these criteria. This control extends to consistency in branding, messaging, and the overall learning experience.

Improved communication

Collaboration is key in any organisation. When L&D professionals possess eLearning development skills, it becomes easier to communicate with subject matter experts, IT teams, and other stakeholders involved in the training process. This improved communication streamlines the development process and ensures everyone is on the same page.

Rapid prototyping and experimentation

In-house eLearning expertise allows L&D teams to experiment with different approaches to learning. They can rapidly prototype and test new ideas, gather feedback, and refine content accordingly. This agile development approach fosters innovation and keeps training materials fresh and engaging.

Alignment with organisational goals

L&D professionals with eLearning skills are better equipped to align training programs with broader organisational goals. They can create courses that directly support business objectives, making L&D an integral part of the company’s success.
