Why is cloud e-learning inevitable today?
The pandemic made many professionals start working from their houses. But it had serious repercussions for them also. When employees relocated to their home towns, for example, those whose houses were not in the same cities where they worked and lived in rented accommodations, companies had to make serious changes. Although e-learning could have been imparted to employees to make them skilled, there were problems in implementing such procedures for remotely located employees. Hence, employees working in different time zones could only be trained through cloud e-learning.
Taking care of parents
Cloud e-learning was necessary because employees had to move to their hometowns to tend to elderly parents during the pandemic. The unnecessary viewership can be avoided in such e-learning for employees by making sure that they have restricted access. It’s because only certain employees must have access to specific content, aligning with their job needs.
But the best part is that although the cloud e-learning content is segregated in terms of access, it’s available all the time making it a reliable resource for employees.
It’s excellent for just-in-time usage, especially in work-from-home situations when employees can’t call anybody.
Virtual Instructor-led training is also a feasible solution for training employees. It’s like having webinars where employees can also participate. But, trainers have to be arranged for delivering such lessons because one trainer can’t teach 24/7 to remote employees. It’s better, that sessions for such employees are located on different days.
Cloud e-learning is not required in the pandemic only; it’s also needed for organizations that have employees located throughout the world. The employees with cloud e-learning can study the content when they have more time rather than waiting for a different time zone. And there is no requirement for someone to manage an in-house server for such accessibility because all the work is handled by a third-party cloud and eLearning vendor. This kind of organization has a cloud-based LMS where it hosts the content curated for you.
Also with a cloud-based server, you are protected from local accidents which can damage the server and affect your data. Moreover, It’s the responsibility of the cloud vendor to create sufficient backups in case such a situation happens. Of course, such vendors have many data centers to provide a backup of your critical organizational data.
No limitation of time and place on content usage
Apart from the freedom of time, cloud e-learning has also removed the limitation of place. The learners can access the content from a device with an internet connection, and they don’t need to login into the company intranet anymore inaccessible outside the company. Since the cloud e-learning is hosted on an LMS on the server of a third party, there is complete freedom of using such content at any place. The new content can be uploaded at any time and does not depend on the availability of the requisite IT staff in your company.
The universal accessibility of the cloud elearning course is also beneficial for managers who can see whether the employees have completed a course or not at any time.
