Bright future expected for e-learning

E-learning
is going to become a major development tool in most organisations over the next
two years, according to a survey by the Industrial Society.

The
survey shows that 29 per cent of respondent organisations offer e-learning and
nearly half of those which do not intend to do so in the next two years.

But
the survey also highlights a divide within companies over who uses e-learning
facilities. Technical staff and management – both senior and junior – use
e-learning resources the most.

Only
18 per cent of organisations which offer e-learning make it available to all
staff, with 6 per cent incorporating some form of e-learning in their induction
programmes. It is more commonly used in the development of administrative
skills and manual skills than to enhance behavioural or leadership skills.

The
key benefits of e-learning include its minimal disruption to working life and that
individuals learn in their own time.
