Research indicates that eLearning contributes to lower costs

By March 22nd, 2012No Comments

If your organization is considering the adoption of custom software development, the initial costs might seem rather steep. There's no denying that eLearning and other digital training techniques require a substantial upfront investment. However, there is an increasing amount of research that demonstrates how the cost of such implementations can actually be low.

For example, the U.S. Department of Education recently released a study entitled Understanding the Implications of Online Learning for Education Productivity. It recommended that most classes and educational centers, from kindergarten up, adopt a digital or online learning regimen. This endorsement shows eLearning solutions can help to both lower costs and increase the overall extent to which ideas and skills are shared.

Researchers found that the most valuable reason to use online learning and custom software development came from the practice's time-saving techniques. Students are able to receive more education, and teachers can focus on lesson planning and curriculum development because they also won't spend nearly as many hours in the classroom. This is true in the workplace as well, because trainers are often other employees who provide work contributions in addition to their instructional duties.
