Three in four organizations use learning technologies: Are you ready to embrace online training?

In the fast-paced world of evolving technologies, three in four organizations use learning technologies yet still insist on using high levels of face-to-face learning. Despite recent research revealing that learners want more elearning, corporate learning and development (LD) teams stay stuck in old habits, with little confidence in their ability to make the shift.

According to an annual report by a leading industry body, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), face-to-face learning delivery remains a dominant trend, with 51% of organizations set to continue that way in the next 12 months.

This is in direct contrast with learner demands. In a 2014 study, only 17% of learners found classroom learning essential or useful, while 49% were happy to find things out for themselves and 82% want self-paced learning. And 53% of organizational LD teams still offered classroom learning as their main learning option. This is in line with the CIPD’s findings a year later, in 2015, when 51% said they were delivering more than half of organizational training face to face.
