Ask the Redback Team – Our Top Reasons to Try Virtual Training!
Trust us its worth the time!
Web Conferencing, Webinars, Online Meetings… they’re all becoming commonplace and they’re definitely changing the way that we connect, communicate and collaborate.
But how do you know if they’re right for you and your organisation when it comes to training andeducation? And, if they are, how do you convince others that the grass is greener?
We’ve done a little internal survey and come up with the main benefits of online training… here are the top 7!
Ease – “There’s no special software involved so your attendees don’t need to be technical geniuses. It’s simple… if they know how to use the internet then they will know how to access your training sessions!” – Chris
Convenience –“You automatically eliminate the headaches of having to get everyone in the same place at the same time. People can join from wherever they like, and that really appeals to people.” – Isaac
Cost – “It significantly decreases! There’s no need to worry about the cost of training rooms, travel or food!” – Michael
Increased retention – “It’s no secret that collaborative learning increases satisfaction, which in turn leads to higher retention rates. Think about it, if people are receiving the necessary training and development they are going to be less likely to look around.” – Jing
Increased Productivity – “If your employees are cutting down on the amount of travel time to training events, they are going to be spending more time on the job, which means higher productivity levels and much more time spent on the important things.” – Kurt
Instantaneous reporting and feedback – “Live registration allows you to monitor who registers, contributes, attends and leaves a session, while built-in reporting capabilities allow you to track questions asked and respond to polls/Q&A. This is crucial when it comes to evaluating your training and gaining valuable feedback.” – Natalie
Interactivity – “These days there’s such a huge variety of online interactive tools available. You’ve gotpolls, question/answer functionality, social media and so much more – it’s almost like you’re really there!” – Aiza
