Corporate E-learning vs. E-learning in the education sector
by Creative Arts Solution Foundation
Corporate E-learning vs. E-learning in the education
E-learning allows both students and business
executives to learn anywhere and at any time. You can learn from virtually any
place with a computer or mobile device and internet connection, meaning you can
study from home, on vacation or in your break. But e-learning is more than
about convenience and there are fundamental differences between e-learning in
the corporate sector and in education.
What happens in the corporate environment?
The role of corporate training is to ensure an
employee has the knowledge and skills to undertake a specific operation to
enable an organization to continue to operate. Fundamentally, corporate
training is centered on knowledge transfer. For example, conferences and
workshops are an essential yet expensive part of business and e-learning makes
it affordable and efficient - sales people, for instance, can receive their training
on new products and sales strategies online. E-learning can be translated to
lower costs to deliver training in a shorter period of time, especially when
employees are spread worldwide.
Corporate education however adds another dimension and
depth to training by involving learners as participants in generating new
knowledge that assists an organization to develop and evolve.
The main characteristics of corporate learning are:
Fast-paced: Enterprise learning is mostly "fast
paced" because "time is money" in the corporate world. Training
needs to be delivered in as short a time frame as possible with maximum
Career-related: Enterprise learning helps employees
gain new skills to advance their careers inside the company. Corporate Learning
Management Systems have additional modules to facilitate that process.
Benefits organization: Enterprise learning focuses
mainly on pragmatic issues with immediate benefits for the organization rather
than just individual benefit. Ultimately training is required for the
organization to function correctly, and corporate education in order for it to
evolve and develop.
Training vs. Education: Enterprise is mostly focused
on training, while education is mostly about learning though "igniting
curiosity" (check out this related post on ‘Learning through Curiosity’).
Training usually means the act of being prepared for something, of being taught
or learning a particular skill and practicing it until the required standard is
reached. This has obvious practical implications for the workplace.
Return on investment: An enterprise needs to be able
to calculate the ROI of its learning investment. In an educational context this
ROI is difficult to calculate and usually the effects of learning take years to
show. Click>>read more...
