Today's technology means that learning is more accessible and effective than ever. Chances are, if you implement new software, your training for that software will be online and self-paced, and there’s a good reason for that.

The On the effectiveness of self-paced learning study by Jonathan Tullis and Aaron Benjamin found that “Learners with control of study-time allocation significantly outperformed subjects with no control.”

Self-paced, online training is growing in popularity. According to the 2018 Workplace Learning Report from LinkedIn, “Fifty-eight percent of employees prefer opportunities to learn at their own pace.” This number is up six percent from the previous year.

What are the benefits?
  • A Personalized Learning Experience - We all learn differently and at different speeds. With self-pacing, you can choose the pace and methods that best suit your learning style.
  • Anytime Anywhere - It can be difficult to find a training time and location that is convenient for your employees, especially if you have many employees to train. Self-paced learning avoids these scheduling issues, and allows students the flexibility to study when it is convenient for them.
  • Empowering Your Employees - Self-paced learning can be a great motivator. It puts the responsibility in the hands of the students, and they respond.
  • Keeping Content Current and Accessible - Self-paced learning allows your employees to access the materials whenever they need to, and allows you to ensure that the materials they are using are always up-to-date.
While the knowledge your employees gain is important, how you deliver that knowledge can have an even bigger impact. Giving employees control over how and when they learn can make a world of difference to how quickly they learn and whether they retain the information.
