I’ve been in the education game, specifically for the building industry for over twenty years, and as you can imagine, I’ve seen a few changes throughout my career. Not just in building regulations, but also in the way that information and courses are delivered.
I firmly believe that e-Learning has been an imminently sensible development over the past few years… Here’s why…
- You/your organisation saves money! In the fast paced world we live in, the old adage “time is money” has never been truer.
- e-Learning has been proven to increase information retention. Building Networks’ e-learning courses combine many elements to reinforce the delivered content, including video, audio, quizzes, and more. You can also revisit or replay sections of the training if you need to.
- E-Learning is delivered when you want it. Train when you want to, not when you have to. Train from your office or home, Building Networks’ e-learning courses are available 24/7.
- Make a plan. Whilst one of the benefits of e-Learning is being able to fit your study in when you want to. You’ll still need to schedule some time and stick to it. It’s all too easy to fall behind on a course without a plan in place, so creating a schedule will help you stay on track and ready to attack!
- Sit back and relax. Make your learning environment comfortable. If you’re too hot or too cold you won’t be able to concentrate. You’ll need some peace and quiet too, so if you’re learning at home make sure it’s in a quiet part of the house if other family members are home. The same applies at work; take yourself off to a private office or meeting room away from distraction and casual conversation.
- Limit other online distractions. Don’t go near your email account, because before you know it you’ll have spent fifteen minutes looking through your inbox. If you’re learning online, let that be the only thing you’re doing online.
Building Networks NZ Ltd now offers you a range of online training courses, most importantly you will also learn your skills maintenance and CPD points.
