E-Learning today has taken the world by storm and helped make learning on-the-go, a norm. Today, learners have access to multiple forms of content which aim to engage the learner. Psychologists state that the average Human attention span is approximately eight seconds, although teenagers and adults find it difficult to sustain attention on one thing for more than 20 minutes at a time. To break the barriers teenagers and adults have towards learning, today’s online courses and learning engagements strive to make the best use of technology such as smartphones and tablets to disseminate byte-sized learning nuggets. Content is also tailored to suit each niche learner segment. E-Learning is also leveraged to complement Instructor-Led Training Modules, so that a learners get the best of both worlds and are able to quickly apply their newly acquired skills, on-the-job. The benefits of e-learning are multi-fold. Some well-known and acknowledged benefits include faster delivery, lower costs, more effective learning and no-geographical constraints. E-Learning will continue to be an effective instrument for self-development for audiences, for years to come.
