Compared to group training, e-learning tends to be less coercive and requires more autonomy from the learner, so there are cases where the learner struggles to maintain motivation. In addition, the ability to learn without being restricted by time or location can also lead to a decline in concentration.

The main effective response is to incorporate gamification elements to make learning more enjoyable. Specific examples include the display of rankings of top performers and the creation of badges and certificates based on learning status.

E-learning also makes it difficult to create opportunities for communication between instructors and learners and among learners. Because it is difficult to generate a question-and-answer session or exchange of opinions, there is a risk that the synergistic effect of the group may be lost.
It is recommended to prepare an environment that facilitates communication by using bulletin boards and in-house SNS where you can easily ask questions.
