Online E-learning Courses During the Coronavirus Crisis

Online E-learning Courses During the Coronavirus Crisis

Covid-19 has changed the world in a remarkably short time. Organisations of every kind, operating in various sectors have been scrambling to change their processes and procedures in accordance with the government lockdown and social distancing guidelines. Unable to train face-to-face, for the time being, e-learning is proving to be a popular alternative.

Digital training fills the gap

Social distancing has meant that group, face to face training has been temporarily suspended and although incomparable to the engagement quality of classroom-based training, the popularity of online learning has increased during the pandemic and for a very good reason. As with many observing social distancing rules, people have taken up online training to continue maintaining professional development, skills, and knowledge, explaining the sharp incline in e-learning.

Many organisations are now working remotely, this has meant that some parts of their workforce have reduced workloads. Thanks to the internet, workplaces can support staff to stay up to date and ensure they’re carrying out much-needed CPD training with online e-learning courses.

The advantages of digital training

Digital training, also known as e-learning is by no means the poor relative of in-person training. It comes with plenty of useful advantages. In fact, this flexible technology enables staff members to fit training around their busy schedules and are therefore less likely to miss training days.

More recently the coronavirus crisis has increased the workloads of hundreds of thousands of people in the health and social care sector. This means the staff and the people who use care services are at more risk than ever. Obviously training is a challenge in a time like this, but at the same time, training is essential to keep everyone informed, up to date, and working in accordance with regulatory standards.

The flexibility of online care training has allowed health and social care staff to continue their much needed essential training whilst also delivering a high standard of care.

Up-skill staff members quickly

One of the greatest advantages of e-learning is the fact that it can be deployed quickly and with flexibility. Learners can access their courses anywhere in the world providing an internet connection is available. This allows organisations who need to redeploy staff or train their workforce in a new area to do so rapidly.

Take for example a large catering business that needs to redeploy staff to help with an increase in takeaway orders. Access to online food safety training can be arranged within minutes meaning they’ll have staff ready to work at the required standards swiftly.
