How can businesses effectively increase the audience of a training program without losing quality of the material being delivered? Read on to find out more…
How Many Is Too Many?
It is difficult, if not impossible not to lose training quality in a traditional instructor led environment, but not the case for online training.
Think of a medium size organisation of 100 people. Let’s say that all employees need training on a specific policy, product, process or procedure. In a typical IT instructor led training course, the maximum recommended participants is usually 10 – 12. To accommodate training for all employees requires that the same training course has to be delivered between 8 and 10 times.
Are You Wasting Money on Classroom Training?
I’m not going to go into all the details of cost here, but suffice to say the organisation would have to fund an instructor 8 – 10 times, secure a venue 8 – 10 times, perhaps secure computers and required software and hardware 8 – 10 times. Now let’s get back to increasing audience figures.
Deliver a Single Course – Use Many Times
One of the many advantages on an online training model, is Do Once, Use Many Times
That is, when a training module has been recorded and hosted on the chosen platform, it is available for viewing INDEFINITELY by an UNLIMITED audience.
Simplicity of Accessing Online Training
If a business had to train 100 employees using an online model, all they need are instructions on how to access the video. The video can be completed in their own time, from any device, in any location, 24/7 and 365 days a year with only the initial cost of creating the video.
I have just written about how a much larger audience can be reached using an online training model within your organisation. However, where it really excels is when you use an online training model for your clients.
Secure More Clients
More often than not, an organisation’s clients are located in multiple locations around the world. To organise instructor training at this level is far more complex and the audience is infinitely greater. Not only are you instantly increasing your audience but also instantly decreasing your training costs, not to mention, time lost travelling to and from locations to facilitate training.
Become the Big Fish
Take the leap to Online Training, become the technology leader. Why settle for the little fish bowl when the large fishbowl is within your reach?
