There are many benefits of using online tools for training. For instance, remote trainings reduce travel and logistical costs. Therefore, providers might be able to deliver ten trainings instead of four because of the cost savings. Online training can also be used to build a sense of community among dispersed organizations. Many tools allow for frequent communication among training participants, either via chat boards, discussion boards, or email.
Many of the tools allow for on-demand usage, allowing ultimate flexibility for busy people. Knowledge from trainings can be retained through recordings that can be easily accessed anytime online. This availability maximizes the reach of training. Also, because you can store documents and resources online, you’re able to share resources quickly and easily. Another major benefit of online tools is that they can accommodate people’s differing schedules. Fortunately, there are online training tools that have a free or low-cost option for at least the basic services.
