“Despite the widespread adoption of technological advances, people still resist online learning. Although we may be quick to point the finger at older generations that did not grow up digitally, the resistance can come from any age group for any number of reasons.
Rather than discuss those reasons, I want to consider how we can overcome the resistance. Three ways I have found effective in practice are: highlighting the benefits, demonstrating the possibilities, and offering training.”
“However … Just like classroom training, online learning requires engagement at every level of the process. From upper management down to the learners themselves—there has to be some kind of engagement strategy in place. Without this high level of engagement, your training programme is doomed to failure. This means that your training’s return on investment is reliant on the amount of effort you put into effectively engaging your staff with their own self-development.”
