E Learning Benefits
Individuals who take e-courses experience significantly higher rates of retention than those taking classroom courses. Content is delivered in smaller, more manageable units. Individuals can skim material they know, and review material that is new to them.

Uniformity of course content
All trainees see and hear exactly the same content when they take an e-course. If your employees take classroom courses delivered at different times or by different instructors, the material that is delivered may vary from one course to another.

Employees do not need to be away from work for extended periods of time.

Easy tracking
An organization can automatically track employees’ progress through e-learning programs. Learning Management Systems typically track the dates an individual has been in a course, the time spent, and their scores on any exams.

Significant cost savings
As well as reducing training time, using e-learning programs eliminates the need for travel and its attendant expenses for both instructors and students. A study reported in Training Magazine indicated that organizations save 50-70% on training costs when they use e-learning programs instead of classroom courses.
