I have always found, upon welcoming a new employee, that one of the hardest things to accomplish was his /her initial training. Not just the daily training sessions, but the entire initial on-boarding and corporate training phase which can go on for months depending on the size and type of company; taking a lot of my time away from my core tasks.
Technological advances and a significant improvement in the delivery of reliable internet to millions of homes have created a better eLearning service for students and a more positive user experience (UX), i.e. how a person interacts and experiences a product.
However, despite these advances, there are a few pitfalls that eLearning companies should avoid.
I must admit that I'm not the biggest fan of distance courses because I like the feeling of sitting in a classroom - even those where the desks are not so comfortable! I feel pleasure in being in a classroom, seeing the students side by side, whispering softly to each other so as not to disturb the teacher. However, despite being a huge fan of the traditional classes, I have become an even bigger fan of eLearning courses.
