Benefits of Online Training
Less Time Needed to Train.
The amount of time it takes employees to complete an interactive, self-paced course was reported to be between 25 and 75 percent less than a classroom course. The time it took for employees to master the content presented to them in a multimedia environment was 60% faster than those in a classroom environment.
Increase in Retention Rates.
Employees that receive multimedia instruction had a 25-50 percent higher retention rate over those receiving the content through classroom instruction. Retention rates are a measure of how much content reaches long-term memory, and reflect the employeeís ability to recall information days, weeks, or months after the training is completed.
The variance in content delivery with multimedia training is 20-40 percent less than instructor-led training. The range of percentage can be attributed to the different choices available to staff members as they make their way through interactive courses.
Increased Employee Satisfaction.
Studies report high employee satisfaction associated with multimedia training because they felt they could learn at their own pace, could take training at their convenience, were more involved in their own learning process, and had privacy during training sessions.
