As we continue to navigate the pandemic, many businesses are turning to online and virtual training solutions for professional learning and development. 

Online and virtual training solutions offer flexibility and cost-effectiveness that individuals and groups need to quickly and conveniently advance themselves and their organizations.

Online and virtual training - or eLearning - can:

  • Reduce the travel and tuition costs associated with training
  • Train more employees at less cost
  • Reinforce alignment to organizational purpose, principles, and value
  • Track student progress and completion statistics in a central location

From the associate to the executive level, a variety of topics are available in on-demand, group-paced, and virtual/live formats.

As a professional training provider, LeanCor offers several plug-and-play online courses in lean, Six Sigma, supply chain, leadership, management, problem solving, warehousing, transportation, and more.

When choosing a course for yourself or your organization, develop a priority matrix or checklist to evaluate program factors such as ease of access, length, learning objectives, engagement level, cost, and alignment with professional goals.

If you are enrolling a large group of employees in an online program, ask the provider about group discount rates, or possible customization options to better fit your organization’s operational and technical requirements. Some providers offer enterprise licenses that enable you to purchase the e-learning modules to host on your organization's own learning management system (LMS) for a one-time fee. Or, if your organization doesn’t have an LMS, enterprise subscription packages are available with private portals for tracking employee progress towards goals, engagement through gamification, discussion forums, custom branding, and more.

Thanks to recent strides in both the quality and quantity of readily available online courses, today’s business professionals can keep training plans in place while staying “in place.”
