Online Employee Training

A growing number of employers are turning to online employee training for a hands-on, interactive way for employees to learn.  More economical in both time and money than conventional training, this form of training has become more and more popular as Internet technology has improved and Web access has become near ubiquitous.

Falling under the umbrella of E-learning, online employee training is also known web-based training. The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) estimates that nearly one-third of learning content made available is in the form of E-learning.

Web-based training has several advantages. Online training allows employees to learn at their own pace and at a time that’s convenient for them. In other words, they are good for self-directed training and refresher training.

And, no matter which shift an employee works, training is always available anywhere there is an Internet connection, which makes these programs effective for training across multiple locations.

Because all the trainees will use the same program, training materials are standardized. The materials are also easy to update.

Online employee training also makes tracking results easier. In other words, an employer is better able to see who has completed training and review their scores.

What to Look for in Online Training

  • Is it easy to use?
  • Does it have built-in interactivity? Does the content keep employees engaged in the training?
  • Do materials cover all the pertinent regulations and do they align with your organization’s goals?
  • Is the information up to date?
  • Are relevant illustrations to the subject and industry included?
  • Do quizzes adequately gage employees’ knowledge of the subject?
  • Does the program track trainees’ progress, test scores, and completion rates?
  • Are your in-house computers able to meet all the system requirements to receive the full benefits of the online multi-media component?
  • Is your company’s bandwidth sufficient for multiple users to take online training.
