As the world becomes more and more digital, technology is changing the face of IT education. In the past, students signed up for classes and went to education centers to learn. While today's students can still go to a classroom if they prefer, it's becoming more and more popular to take training on digital devices, including desktops, laptops and tablets. Plus, it's now possible to access lab environments and classroom materials on those same machines.
“eLearning is considered the ‘primary’ delivery method of IT training for about 45% of enterprises.”
Digital Learning Advantages
The move to digital training (or eLearning) has many advantages. Students have essentially grown up using computers, so going digital is a simple switch from the traditional classroom. Anytime, anywhere, training fits into a busy schedule and gives students the luxury of making progress at their own rate. Travel is no longer required, helping save time and money. When done right, the move to digital learning provides more people with greater access to the best instruction from top instructors, with content that is fresh, thorough and up to date.
