ONLINE LEARNING

What online learning is: Self-directed and often short learning modules delivered via your organization’s LMS.

When to use online learning: Use online learning to let you and your employees:

  • Learn at their own pace and with a focus on what they need when they need it.

  • Free up HR and managers to focus on helping employees with other skills and development needs that require more hands-on, live (even if virtual) training.

  • Supplement virtual or in-person learning to reinforce key skills and concepts.


Master or refresh skills such as:

  • Technical skills

  • Industry knowledge and concepts

  • Individual development skills such as time management and communication

VIRTUAL LEARNING

What is virtual learning: Generally conducted as live, synchronous sessions using video collaboration tools such as Zoom.


When to use virtual learning: Use virtual learning anytime you help employees learn through:

  • Peer-to-peer interaction without having to fly them to a physical location.

  • A shared set of skills, knowledge, and experiences.

  • A learning journey in which employees share application, experiences, and insights over time.

IN-PERSON LEARNING

What is in-person learning: Usually in-person learning is simply virtual learning conducted on site and, as implied, in person.


When to use in-person learning: Use in-person learning when time and physical availability allow and to enable similar learning objectives as those for virtual learning:

  • Enable peer-to-peer interaction.

  • Develop a shared set of skills, knowledge, and experiences.

  • Facilitate a learning journey in which employees share application, experiences, and insights over time.
