It is no secret that classroom based training can be extremely costly. Not only is the cost of training high, due to large overheads, but on top of this there are often travel expenses, accommodation and expenses costs and most importantly the cost of lost productivity while the workforce is away on training. E-Learning reduces these costs dramatically because the participants study from the office, home or on the road, so no expensive travel or accommodation costs, but importantly the learning is flexible, so the student can fit their studying around work commitments and at a pace to suit them.
After location, time is the greatest limitation on learning. That goes for both the instructors and the participants, each of whom has to be both available and in alignment with the other for face-to-face instruction. By removing that requirement, everyone involved can participate at a time, and for a duration, that suits his or her schedules.
Participants can access their course at any time, from anywhere they can log on. This means that participants on the move have the option of attending classes no matter their work schedule, they only need a computer and Internet access to take online sales training.
Easy and Fun
People enjoy using the Internet to learn new things because it’s fun, it’s a new way to learn. Learning online is much more comfortable than sitting in a class. It saves money on transportation and does not require the participant or the student to ‘dress-up’ or go anywhere to learn. With simple instructions, most anyone can access online courses quickly and easily.
Online Sales Training can be accessible for participants when they need it. Participants can review lectures, discussions, explanations, and comments. Individuals can also share notes with each other to help facilitate community learning.
Unlike classroom-based training, the majority of online courses can be done more than once without charge (usually an unlimited number of times within a certain time period), meaning that any information that was missed the first time by the person doing the course can be found by simply going back and re-doing the online course.
A participant can work through the course at their own pace. In a traditional course, delegates are required to go at the speed of the trainer, who may be going too fast if there is a lot of material to get through, in which case delegates may miss important bits of information, or even too slowly which can lead to attentions to be lost, also resulting in the person on the course not taking in everything that is being taught.
