An Assessment of the Effectiveness of e-learning in Corporate Training Programs | Strot... - 0 views

  • There is no doubt that corporations are increasing their emphasis on e-learning.
      • Sixty percent had an e-learning initiative
    • Eight-six percent had a priority of converting current instructor-led sessions to e-learning
      • Eighty percent will set up or expand knowledge-management programs
    • Seventy-eight percent were developing or enhancing electronic performance support
  • In another TeleEducation study of 130 faculty respondents, 62 percent said their students learned equally effectively in the online environment; 23 percent of faculty stated that their students learned better online; while 90 percent indicated that they were satisfied with online teaching. One faculty comment was: “Online students participate more, perform slightly better than, and are at least as satisfied as their on campus counterparts. From that I conclude that online education appears to be very effective!”

    • Eighty-seven percent preferred to take digital courses during work hours.
    • Fifty-two percent preferred e-learning in a workplace office area.
    • Eighty-four percent would take a similar e-course if offered again.
    • Thirty-eight percent said they generally preferred e-learning to classroom training.
  • For the corporate training arena, Bregman and Jacobson (2000) note that

    the additional desired outcome of positive business results is notoriously difficult to measure because of the following factors:

    • Conducting a rigorous evaluation can be expensive and time-consuming.
    • Isolating a direct cause-and-effect relationship between training programs and a business’ bottom line is difficult.
    • Determining the appropriate outcomes to measure is challenging.

    With these caveats about research results in the field of e-learning, how do we arrive at accurate results?

  • Until a more solid research methodology is developed for measuring e-learning results, we can rely on the mainly qualitative feedback from corporations that are using e-learning to deliver their training. Firms praise online training as a cost-effective, convenient, and effective way to deliver corporate education. Early studies seem to demonstrate that e-language-learning in business is a win-win proposition for all – the learner, the corporation, and the customers served by the corporation.

  • there is an emerging and significant need for training and development to take on a new and more strategic role in defining and developing a new generation of leaders.
  • “Creating People Advantage 2010,”
  • Most industries and companies will experience a widening talent gap, notably for highly skilled positions and for the next generation of middle and senior leaders.”
  • cause of this gap
  • the confluence of Baby Boomers’ upcoming retirement (the brain drain)
  • a technological boom, and the training and development budget cuts from 2009 and 2010.
  • “The wisdom, the knowledge, and the experience necessary to lead generally is found among people who have been in the business for 25 years or more
  • the competency to master the new technologies is more likely to be found in those who have been working 10 years or less,”
  • “A whole new generation of leadership has to be defined.”
  • as T&D budgets begin to grow again, more attention will be given to when training should be in person, when it should be remote, and when it should be blended.
  • the challenge will be how best to use technology, especially digital platforms that promote collaborative, global learning.
  • In some respects, technology can create more problems because everyone assumes that since they are using the same technology, they are operating in the same environment, while the technology often masks the underlying cultural differences in today’s increasingly global virtual workforce.
  • lack of cultural intelligence is prevalent.
  • very few corporations with training and development departments that have developed effective curricula to build the cultural competence necessary to lead in a global economy.
  • Going forward, training and development departments must:
  • Define a clear global leadership development process
  • critical skills necessary to lead globally.
  • Be proactive and visionary
  • Leverage, yet understand the limitations of, technology.
  • Optimize every dollar, deciding strategically
  • Define and develop the next generation of leaders.
  • Be part of the global and strategic mission of the organization.
  • They must be better than Google.
  • must equip companies that increasingly are challenged to accelerate leaders without much time and experience to develop their talent. And they must take the lead.
    A perspective on the future of corporate training functions, their solutions, and strategic impact to organizations.
