e-learning without breaking the bank
There's no getting away from the fact that providing learning can be expensive.
As with a lot of things, the key to getting an efficient and effective way to deliver exciting and engaging training to your learners is in the planning.
Here are three ways to think ahead and get the most cost-effective solution.
How many users?
If you need e-learning for a large corporate business, then you've probably realised that taking on an e-learning solution that charges by the user is a no-go. You'll either have to compromise on the number of people who can access the learning, or accept a huge bill each month that will quickly become unsustainable. You'll also have to look very carefully at your future budgeting as your organisation grows.
If you're a smaller business you're going to be able to accept a per-user cost much more readily before the costs start racking up. But you too should look to the future to consider what happens to your learning budget as the organisation grows.
We've considered both these scenarios and come up with a pricing package that we think handles these considerations for you.
With a Learn with Mobile Enterprise subscription, you get unlimited users for a fixed monthly cost. You can plan your budget knowing that your costs don't change as you bring more users on board.
As a smaller business, you can choose the Learn with Mobile Professional subscription. This offers a full-featured product for a low monthly fee which includes your first 25 users. As your company grows and you invite more users to your system, packs of 25 users are added to your subscription automatically so you stay in control.
The cost of content
If you've used traditional learning management systems (LMS) you may well think that to be effective, all e-learning has to be SCORM wrapped. This can be an expensive process when all you need is to get some information out to your learners and track the usage and results.
You may also have a lot of learning that you've built up over time, and you don't want to throw it away and start again.
Learn with Mobile offers you the chance to load up any kind of content and get useful tracking and reporting without having to use the SCORM standard. Of course, it will accept SCORM wrapped content so there's no need to re-do everything; you can mix old content with new.
And whether you're a seasoned user or you are new to learning management systems, you can go to the best supplier on each kind of content and mix all these up in your own Learn with Mobile.
Less classroom time
If you can provide effective m-Learning, there's no question that your costs can be reduced.
You may have a situation where all new employees must spend the first day or even week of their employment in a classroom, doing either an induction course or some kind of basic training. You may have to refresh your people in up-to-date techniques or provide new information. Or you may simply need to get people to brush up on their skills regularly.
You have to suffer the cost of travel and the cost of taking people out of the front-line, where they will add value to your business. If you can deliver information to the point of need with a modern mobile enabled learning management system, you can significantly reduce and even eliminate the need for people to be sitting in classrooms learning.
