There are so many advantages to digital learning.
First of all, there’s already a demand for digital learning; even two years ago, Bersin by Deloitte, Fosway and many more revealed the learning habits of modern professionals. Their findings showed that people today are busy, to the point of overwhelm, but keen to learn. People want personalized content, but quickly lose patience when content is not readily available, or if the user experience is mediocre at best.
With mobile phones and tablets being ubiquitous, it makes sense that learners turn to their devices any time they have even a small inkling to do a little learning.
Plus, this on-demand, digital content is key especially now – life is even more chaotic thanks to this pandemic, what with people all over the world having to work from home and juggle both professional and personal duties (childcare and exercise somehow fitted into a day already packed with team meetings!).
With digital learning, employees have complete control over their learning schedules. This flexibility makes it possible for people to learn at their own convenience.
Finally, with the need to observe social distancing measures, every organization must see to it that fewer employees are on location at any given time. It simply makes no sense to pay rent, electricity and other costs for a location that few people will use – indeed, many companies are taking stock of their real estate and shutting parts of existing offices.
