Corporate eLearning: Coming to a boardroom near you by Stephanie Rogers

As technology evolves, eLearning is expected to replace the need for physically assembling employees.

Stephanie Rogers writes: "Bringing people together even when they're thousands of miles apart, cutting costs and reducing the environmental impact of business travel, corporate eLearning is the way of the future. Instead of physically assembling employees for training sessions, business leaders can use technology like video, learning management systems and social media to create collaborative learning environments."

Corporate eLearning is not just about sharing informational content, like a virtual version of a boring slideshow at a business conference. It emphasizes hands-on learning using online knowledge databases, one-on-one support from knowledgable tutors, self-paced training without a live instructor or real-time, instructor-led group learning activities over the internet.
