High dropout rates can directly impact the effectiveness of elearning. This whitepaper, from e2Train addresses why learners fail to finish elearning courses and backs up our research findings over the years.

 The Towards Maturity model for e-learning effectiveness looks at  6 strands of activities that successful organisations are more likely to engage with – the importance of alignment to business need, lunderstanding the earner and work context, building skills, engaging stakeholders and demonstrating value.
This white paper provides practical tips, real-world examples and top 10 tips that illustrate aspects of the model , and will help organisations increase completion rates and add to the success of elearning within an organisation.
e2Train’s e-learning Completion Top 10:
1 Link training to performance reviews

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
