How eLearning Can Help Students Become Industry Ready

‘Industry ready’ is a term we often keep hearing, but what does this actually mean? It is essentially used to indicate that a student is able enough to handle workplace projects even from day one. Companies prefer industry ready candidates as this would save them the cost on training and adaptation, and they would be hiring a candidate who can work with full efficiency right from the word go and would not require any further schooling except for proprietary tools or software.

Formal education systems offer a comprehensive curriculum that instills a great amount of knowledge in students. However, due to the sheer complexity of being continually updated as well as conforming to the need of providing wholesome education, it cannot teach college students everything that is needed to succeed in the current job market. This is where eLearning plays a vital role – in bridging the gap between what is required by the industry and the skill set that a formal education system endows an individual with. eLearning can supplement and complement classroom learning by teaching the students about things that they would not usually come across in their regular curriculum. And these are the skills that employers look for in their new hires! From teaching new technologies to soft skills, eLearning can effectively and efficiently do it all.

The advantage in using eLearning is the ‘e’ part. Students can learn anything they want, from anywhere they are, a guiding principle that LearnSocial embodies. For an avid learner and knowledge seeker, this opens up avenues of opportunities and a bevy of skills they can lap up on. These courses not only satiate their learning thirst, but also equip them with much sought after industry skills that make them more employable.

There are many skillsets across domains such as IT, Business, Development, Soft skills etc. that a student can easily acquire via the eLearning medium, and leverage that in his/her career and profession. One can choose to follow a learning path where one course leads to another related skill or choose to learn what one’s heart desires to build a repository of skills that add substantial weight to one’s profile and resumé. So eLearning not only helps in learning and knowledge gathering, but also helps in cementing one’s position as a skilled and industry ready individual.

If you seek to learn and gain knowledge further than what the traditional books offer, eLearning is your handy new tool and LearnSocial is your new best friend that can help you learn all that you seek.

Online Live Instruction for Corporate Training

You have a bunch of new recruits coming in soon or have a group of employees that need to be reskilled for that shiny new project that is the hotcake of the company. You need people ready to bash on, so what do you do? Call on your trusted corporate trainer of course! While the trainees are munching on what is being taught, you are busy crunching the money numbers for the roundtable. “Quite an expense”, you tell yourself. Fret not, when it comes to higher performance and lower costs in corporate training, eLearning and online live instruction more so, is your superhero.

Though some traditionalists frown upon the idea of using eLearning for skill training, recent times have seen many companies utilize the potential of eLearning and laugh their way to success. With statistics indicating that nearly half of the Fortune 500 companies use eLearning tools regularly for their training purposes, it is clear that this fascination with eLearning is not just because it’s the new kid on the block. eLearning helps to substantially increase the return on investment (ROI) and also improves staff performance. Studies have shown that companies that use eLearning for their corporate training needs have reduced their training costs by as much as 35% and have seen a consistent improvement in the performance of all their employees.

eLearning is more consistent and also does not require additional resources to set up the meet and teach the skill needed. With live instructor led classes there is real time interaction as well as better retention of the learning due to the use of multimedia and expert instruction design that provides a rich learning experience. There is greater engagement as the interaction is more direct and a junior employee or fresher can comfortably speak and interact with more senior colleagues. The delivery is immediate and highly cost effective, with almost no expenditure on travel, cost of speakers, and facilities required. One can sign in right from his/her workstation, taking out the need to assemble in a huge group where a voice might be lost.

Another thing live training brings to the table is the fun element without which such a training is seen as drudgery on the senses lacks enthusiasm from the participants. Videos and games can be used to make the learning fun and at the same time ensure that the skill being taught is being lapped up properly. The takeaway from such an interactive class will definitely be higher than the regular training sessions. Live online training reduces the time for the training, coming down to almost 1/4th of what would otherwise be needed. The relevance of the content is better and is very convenient for anyone to be a part of it.

Did I mention that it also instills a knowledge thirst in the learners and they would be more enthused to sit in for the next training session or workshop? You will not only train them, but make them lifelong learners. Won’t that make them love you! 😀

Don’t you think it’s about time you embraced eLearning and online live training?
