A great article, Caroline. Thank you.
Having focused on online training over the last six years, I have noticed and been involved in its evolution. I have over 250,000 learners in 180+ countries allowing me to reach far more than just a local audience.
My focus is training around emotional intelligence. This has been a big challenge as emotional intelligence cannot be developed though PowerPoint presentations / videos alone, however people can learn about emotional intelligence and how to apply it.
Online courses need to provide interactive quizzes, discussion boards and practical activities that combine together to give the learners an integrated training experience. They can, also, be enhanced with quality psychometrics and coaching.
Ideally, training underpinned by emotional intelligence - leadership, team work, conflict resolution, change management, communication skills, etc. - should involve human interaction. However, if companies can't / won't provide this training for whatever reason online learning can work extremely well.
Too many people have been seeing this as a stop-gap opportunity, but events are now opening up to make online learning much more acceptable. This is a billion dollar industry that is set to grow exponentially over the coming years.
