In most cases, we can distinguish three e-learning versions.

Firstly when we want to learn or acquire new skills and we use available platforms for these, for example: Udemy, Teachabe, WizIQ, Skillshare and many more. Thanks to these tools, we can acquire direct skills and increase our chances to get a new job or be more competitive.

The second approach is when the knowledge and skills are imposed from the organization, for example, a company which has described standard, statues, specialist knowledge which need to be acquired.

Third e-learning version requires an institutional approach. By that I mean especially e-learning connected to the public school possesses a particular school program and described detailed standards consistent with state law.

In the day of common mobile availability and internet access e-learning has become a palpability proof that people want to increase their competences to improve their competitive strength on the job market, in their internal company, whether simply for themselves.

In this situation when we consider that e-learning is a popular method for increasing competitiveness if the company's owner has decided to launch that kind of method can we consider it as profitable?

Try to answer the above questions:) 

Today, many companies, from large enterprises to small startups, use e-learning to manage their employees’ development: upgrade their qualifications, teach them new skills, or retrain them for new positions.

Take some Advantages:

Lower training costs 
With e-learning, you don’t have to spend a fortune hosting seminars, renting hotel rooms, and covering travel expenses. You can simply develop an online course and share it with your employees.

Wider coverage 
Distance learning has no barriers. You can train hundreds of employees in dozens of offices across the world in a uniform fashion. Employees don’t need to spend time attending classroom lectures. All they need is a digital device and Internet access.

Single knowledge base 
All the learning material is stored in one place, i.e., an LMS. Employees can log in to the LMS at a convenient time from any device, find the course they need and refresh their memory.

Faster employee development 
Traditional training can be rather slow because it depends on business trainers’ working hours. An LMS is available anytime, making it possible for your employees to study whenever they feel like: when commuting, during their lunch break, or at home.

Easy progress tracking
Your business trainers don’t need to hold in-class training and go over every single paper in person. Most LMSs have analytics, which shows each student’s progress in graphs and reports.

Business adaptability
E-learning helps employees keep up with the company’s rhythm and solve problems in real-time. Need to introduce a new product to the sales team? Create a course and deliver it instantly to thousands of employees.
