e-Learning Gaining Momentum
Think that online learning is a fringe activity or passing phase? Think again. According to a 2007 ASTD (American Society for Training & Development) study, more than $134 billion was spent on e-learning by United States organizations. Something interesting to note is that e-learning is not just focused on internal functions. Quite the contrary, nearly $51 billion was allocated to mission critical skill-building in areas such as leadership, communication, and salesmanship. It appears that many companies are utilizing e-learning options to reinforce best practices that are in place or recently learned through coaching and training activities.
