As a trainer, do you feel stuck in your current role, and are looking to get ahead faster? Do you think that technology is going to have a negative impact on your role?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you need to develop additional skills to become a competitive candidate. A survey conducted by LinkedIn found that employees who take online courses are 55% more likely to be promoted than those who do not.

We have put together a few facts that reveal the power of E-learning for trainers:

Opportunity to Grow: After several years of training experience, you definitely want to move to more senior roles. E-learning will help you to understand how to design training programs, manage trainers, and ensure that the training programs align with the organization’s goals and objectives. This knowledge will enable you to work directly with the management and gain valuable experience.

Keep up with the Latest Trends: Tourism is constantly evolving and eLearning helps you keep updated with the current trends. Creating VR tour videos for users, mobile-enabled travel & using AI tools are some of the latest trends in the tourism industry. Your understanding of trends and technology will give you the critical edge to stay ahead of your peers.

Flexibility to Learn as Per your Own Schedule: As a trainer, all your time is consumed in developing training programs, delivering the sessions & assessing learner performance. Juggling all these multiple roles and tasks leave you with less time but eLearning gives you the flexibility to learn as per your individual schedule. You can access courses while travelling, during work breaks or from home. The deadlines on most programs are flexible and can be reset as per your schedule.

Learn New Techniques: Training nowadays is a mix of audio and video recordings, presentations, quizzes, surveys, games & discussion groups. E-learning will help you incorporate these in your modules which in turn makes them more interactive and relevant to today’s times. Online whiteboards, flipped classrooms (students read the material in advance before it is taught to them) & games-based teaching is the new teaching methods that you can first experience in your programs and then implement when you are training.

Interact with online mentors: Face-to-face interaction becomes very difficult due to the busy schedules of industry stalwarts. But now you have a chance to learn from the best through online mentoring platforms. Also learning through industry webinars & discussion platforms gives you a chance to stop passive learning and hack your way to growth. As Milton Berle said, “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door”. So join the eLearning bandwagon today and accelerate your professional development in the ‘Truly Rapid‘ mode.
