Online courses offer several advantages. It's easier and less disruptive to schedule an online course than a facilitated session. Instead of dedicating an entire day to a classroom session, employees can work on course components whenever it's convenient.
Online learning can also eliminate travel costs. It's both expensive and time-consuming for facilitators and employees to travel to a central location. All participants need for an online course is internet access and a password.
Finally, online courses can help companies document due diligence in complying with regulations. The program automatically records who has taken and completed each course component and test.
