The Benefits of E-Learning - click here!
The ability to remain competitive in business hinges largely on how well employees are trained to meet today’s challenges. It wasn’t long ago that additional training meant sitting in a conventional classroom for instruction. But in today’s fast-paced environment, e-learning or Web-based training is becoming the choice mode for teaching new skills. Nearly 50 percent of all companies have some form of e-learning, according to recent statistics, and more than $9 billion will be spent on e-learning by 2002. Most experts feel that it won’t replace traditional classes, but it is a quicker and easier method to disseminate information, not to mention a cheaper way to train workers. In this segment, we will explore the tools of e-learning and the impact it is having on the workplace.

"If you are not being educated in your job today, you may be out of a job tomorrow... 

Employee education is not growing 100 percent faster than academia, but 100 times - or 10,000 percent - faster... 

Over the next few decades the private sector will eclipse the public sector and become the major institution responsible for learning."

-- Jim Botkin and Stan Davis, The Monster Under the Bed

the relevant question now is who will become the early adopters that will enjoy the benefits and competitive advantage E-Learning will yield?"
