Benefits of E-learning

//Benefits of E-learning

In the world where change is constant, the need for Continuous Personal and Professional Development (CPD) is on the rise. E-learning is a great option for people who would like to upskill or advance their careers. Five key benefits of e-learning courses are outlined below:

Convenience and Flexibility

E-learning courses are accessible via a variety of web-enabled devices from anywhere where you can access the internet. These courses can be accessed at any time, which provides candidates with a convenient opportunity to fit learning around their busy lifestyles. All you need is a web-enabled device and a stable internet connection for you to start an e-learning course from the comfort of your own home or any other location that you like. No need to depend on anybody or specific location, just yourself.

Improved Learning

E-learning courses promote active and independent learning, and allow candidates to learn at a pace that is right for them. SkillPoint provides 12 months’ open access for e-learning courses to ensure you have plenty of time to complete the required hours for the course. Unlike classroom-based lessons, e-learning allows candidates to access and review sessions an unlimited number of times. Benefits of this include reinforcing your understanding and digestion of the topic, and the opportunity to review previous sessions in preparation for an exam. SkillPoint puts you in control of your learning journey.


E-learning courses consist of a number of pre-recorded, engaging and interactive sessions. They come with incorporated exercises and assessments, and ensure that all key information is communicated in a consistent manner to all candidates. The e-learning courses are continuously reviewed, and updated as and when required. This ensures they are up-to-date with all industry changes and provide candidates with the access to the most recent content.

Reduced Costs and Time

The e-learning approach is cost effective compared to the classroom-based approach. There is no requirement for live trainer, no need for travel or accommodation, no time away from the workplace and no need to worry about the dress code or dragging heavy course materials around. Many certifications offered by SkillPoint have Online Proctored Exams eliminating the need to travel, even to the examination centre. The Online Proctoring solution allows you to take exams online at your preferred time and location, using a webcam, microphone and a stable internet connection. To find out more, click here.
