Background of the growing demand for e-learning
Due to the impact of the new coronavirus infection, many companies have begun to consider and introduce telework.
The Japanese government is also recommending telework to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection.
In addition, to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, it has become difficult to conduct group training.
However, in order for a company to continue to grow, it is important to create a system that fosters an attitude and organizational culture in which each employee can flexibly respond to learning and take on challenges.
In order to solve these social situations and problems, "e-learning" is now attracting a great deal of attention.
Features of e-learning
E-learning is a learning system that allows you to "improve your skills at your own pace, without being restricted by time or place" by using electronic devices such as computers and smartphones and the Internet.
Advantages and disadvantages of e-learning
In order to demonstrate the benefits of e-learning implementation, it is of utmost importance that it is used properly in internal training.
When considering the introduction of e-learning for training, certification, and school education, understanding the advantages and disadvantages will make the introduction and operation go smoothly.
We've put together a list of scenarios for you to use, so let's get started.
E-learning for in-house training
Once the e-learning environment is established, it can be used over and over again.
Therefore, the cost of in-house group training and new employee training could be significantly reduced.
When conducting group training, the following costs will be incurred
1. Transportation costs incurred when gathering participants to the venue
No. 2: Venue costs incurred in conducting the training.
No. 3: Printing and distribution costs for materials used in the training
No.4. Costs of external instructors in charge of training
By conducting training via e-learning, you can reduce the cost of venues and the time and expense of distributing course textbooks.
We can provide flexible learning opportunities for those with irregular working hours or mid-career hires, for whom group training would be difficult.
E-learning in school education
E-learning learning can easily export data from the LMS (Learning Management System), the delivery system.
The learning history file stores data necessary for learning management, such as the progress of the study (not yet/in progress/completed, etc.), time of day, time required, and test scores.
E-learning can also quantify the performance data here and display it in a graph.
▼ Advantages in school education
1. You can study anytime and anywhere at your own time.
2. You can learn according to your own level of understanding and progress.
No.3: Easy to understand performance data and performance management
4. You can take as many lessons as you like for preparation, review and relearning.
Because e-learning allows you to study at your own pace and repeat as many times as you like, it is a very suitable learning method for acquiring qualifications, preparing for exams, and overcoming weak subjects.
Disadvantages of e-learning
Since e-learning requires each learner to make time to take the course, it may be difficult for a single learner to maintain the desire and motivation to learn.
There may be cases where students do not study because they are too busy with their work or other reasons.
Unlike group training, which provides semi-compulsory learning opportunities, it is important for learners to be actively engaged. For this reason, companies need to take measures to keep learners motivated, such as incorporating gamification elements and creating a community among learners.

How to implement e-learning
Based on the advantages and disadvantages of e-learning, many people who are actually considering introducing it may be wondering how to do so. Here, we'd like to focus on the advantages of creating your own e-learning materials.
In-house production of e-learning materials
The e-learning system can be made in-house. The main things you will need are the learning management system we mentioned earlier, and learning materials for e-learning created with slides and other materials. One of the advantages of in-house production is that it allows you to create your own training content.
The easier it is to upload, the less work it is to create content and the more regularly it can be updated.
If you are thinking of using e-learning for your training, but are not sure whether to create the materials in-house or outsource them, please refer to this page.
Advantages of creating your own e-learning materials
1. If you outsource, once you make a product, it takes a lot of time and money to modify it.
Considering the disadvantages of outsourcing, it is the same in any field, but revisions and updates after they are made are costly due to additional fees and the time and effort required to request them.
2. If we create it by ourselves, we can easily create and modify it by ourselves.
On the other hand, if we create our own teaching materials, we can easily create and modify them ourselves, so we can control the maintenance after they are created.
If you're creating your own materials, it's critical that your eLearning be easy to use!
When you create your own e-learning materials, isn't the most important thing to make them easy to use?
