When it comes to online corporate education, the days of posting simple PPT slides and talking head videos are over. Online education, or eLearning, has become increasingly accepted as a favorable comparison to classroom-based training.

The tremendous growth and competition of online training has fueled more interactivity, gamification and fun into courseware, resulting in a more sophisticated and compelling learning experience for adult learners. Add the fact that online, self-paced training is available 24 X 7, and what’s not to like?

Busy schedules, affordability and the need for convenience have positioned online learning as a logical alternative to classroom-based training and scheduled Webinars. Whether you require continuing education credits to maintain a certification or just need a refresher course, online learning works for many professionals. Similarly, eLearning also works well to satisfy the professional development needs of departments as well as entire companies.

Online learning is simply another learning option to accommodate the training needs of those who – for whatever reason – cannot attend classroom-based training. Fathom Corporate Training is pleased to offer that accommodation with a complete library of online courses.

Consider some of these benefits of online education as you plan your next professional development program, whether it’s for an individual, staff, department or company-wide training.
