According to Training Industry, online learning has become a $56 billion industry, with learning professionals claiming it is the second most effective training method they use.

Studies show elearning can also reduce instruction time, save energy, and increase the learners' retention of the content.

When designing engaging and effective learning experiences, there are challenges to consider. In a classroom experience, the trainer has control over the pace of the delivery and shaking up the content, so learner engagement remains high. Additionally, with a classroom training experience, learners become part of a cohort group that can encourage and support embedding the learning into everyday projects, tasks, and interactions with others.
