Tip of the week: Training through the Internet and other electronic means

Today's technology has created a unique learning and development opportunity for many companies. In addition to traditional classroom training, companies can now offer a variety of development media such as e-learning to employees. These opportunities provide the flexibility to learn where and when workers want to and at their own pace. Also, it can help overcome geographic barriers, reduce travel time and expenses, reach a diverse audience and minimize time away from work. Blended learning - or in partnership with other traditional learning formats such as classroom training and conferences - e-learning can support a company's desire to create a learning organization that meets the diverse learning and development needs of its employees.
