|eLearning is on the rise
In response to a question on the – predicted use of different training methods next year – external seminars seem to be losing out. That should be a cause of concern for Training Companies and Independent Trainers who provide external ILT training sessions. Classroom training (and by that I assume in-house training as opposed to external seminars) is finding favor as it would hopefully save some dollars on travel and other related expenses.
Caution: This graph may not be the best representation of this information. It seems the positive axis should be “same or more use” even though the graph has it marked as “more use”.
How did I conclude this?
See this about classroom training from the report:
It’s interesting to note that in contrast to the 39% reporting a decrease in classroom training, 61% of respondents report their use of this type of training will either increase (17%) or stay the same (44%).
So it seems that the 61% includes responses given to both options “same use” and “more use”. Only 17% are saying it will increase.
Further on Web-based learning the report says:
Training delivery systems that are expected to experience a 50% or better increase in usage at our respondents’ companies in the coming year include Web-based e-learning, Web-based training such as LiveMeeting and Webex, conference calls and mentoring/coaching.
After weathering years of predictable hits and misses while working to establish Web-based learning as a viable training method, the scales are unquestionably tipping in favor of making this training delivery method a mainstay in progressive organizations nationwide.
With 85% of our survey respondents anticipating that their company’s use of Web-based training will either stay the same or increase in the coming year and 87% predicting the same for Web-based e-learning, it’s safe to say that a trend is emerging.
