What is e-learning?

Quite simply, e-learning is electronic learning, and typically this means using a computer to deliver part, or all of a course whether it’s in a school, part of your mandatory business training or a full distance learning course.

CIF is working in partnership with Dillon Production to deliver quality training programmes and combining this with a dedicated experienced technical team and support staff, at CIF Virtual Academy provides the perfect blended learning environment, offering anyone the chance to take their online training to the next level.

What are the benefits?

There are several benefits to e-learning whether you choose to use it on its own, or to enhance your existing in house training. We’ve listed a few below, but for more information on how your business can save time and money you can call today and speak to one of our Ilkley based support team.

It is cost effective and saves time

By reducing the time taken away from the office, removing travel costs and doing away with printed materials, online learning helps you to save money and increase workplace productivity. It also means your staff will be happier and focused.

Learning from anywhere

Many face to face courses only operate within normal office hours. By allowing staff to complete the course when and where they like you can make sure disruptions to your busy working schedule are minimised. This also means that your staff will be happier because they don’t need to travel to specific training centres, and if they have important work to catch up on mandatory training can be done outside of office hours in exchange for lieu time. Most of our courses have an average learning time, and our courses allow learners to print out certificates of proof for CPD evidence of successful completion.

It makes tracking course progress easy

Perhaps the most important aspect of using computers for training is that it with a well implemented Learning Management System (LMS) makes it easy to track and prove progress for your staff. This can be essential for our most popular courses where proof of mandatory training is required.

It is discreet

Not everybody feels comfortable learning in a large group, especially if they find something hard to understand that co-workers have no problem with. E-learning allows each individual to tackle the subject at their own pace, with interactive tasks being set in place to ensure a thorough understanding throughout each module.
