The E-Learning Advantage & Upcoming Webinar Schedule
Frequent training is essential for job seekers, employees and employers. Continued learning aids in easier recruitment and retention for employers and allows employees and job seekers to stay up-to-date on the latest information and technology. Finding new, efficient and economical ways to become educated is important to everyone in the workplace and also for job seekers. E-learning has proven to be one way to train many people on a wide variety of topics at a relatively low cost.
Numerous sources cite the lack of face-to-face interaction as the major disadvantage of e-learning. However, it is recognized that the positives most often outweigh the negatives.
