eLearning Outsourcing Benefits

We all do a fair amount of shopping every now and then, don’t we? Well, let’s ignore the routine ones. Think of how you usually analyze any high value commodity, the background analysis, comparisons, and of course the main part-understanding the benefits that particular commodity offers.

Now, don’t go wondering where we are heading towards with this. Yes this is a blog about the benefits of eLearning outsourcing indeed. It’s just that outsourcing has many aspects that bear resemblance to the usual aspects of shopping. eLearning outsourcing has gained prevalence over the years. And just to be clear most organizations outsource just some part of their eLearning requirements, while some outsource most of it- but that again depends on the kind of industry and many other aspects. But why do they opt for outsourcing? Take a look at the 6 key benefits (associated with some aspects considered while choosing any commodity) it offers and you will know.

1. Functional Focus (how it helps?)

If you were to put it in layman’s terms going for eLearning Outsourcing makes it easier for you/your organization to focus on your primary functions. Say you are a training company then providing training services rather than creating training content is your primary function and outsourcing content development and hosting gives you the flexibility and freedom to focus more on enhancing the core functions.

2. Expertise (what it gives?)

In case of eLearning providers, their primary function is content creation, developing innovative LMS etc. for which they need to have a well-trained team with high level of experience, understanding and expertise in eLearning. This expertise comes to your aid when you outsource, and you get a dedicated team that focuses solely on creating the best learning solution for your organization.

3. Competitive Edge (the 20% extra!)

For any organization staying ahead of the curve is amongst the top priority, and for this staying updated is a must. Outsourcing eLearning not just brings you innovative solutions but also keeps you updated with respect to the latest changes in technology, provides better ways to engage employees, ensures employee retention to a great extent and most of all keeps your organization one step ahead in the race.

4. Time & Quality (will it save time and what about the results?)

Experience, expertise, manpower do matter when it comes to creating and delivering high quality eLearning. Outsourcing eLearning to the right vendor not only gives good output but also saves time at all major steps and ensures that your organization meets all the necessary targets through on-time delivery.

5. Monetary (%saving?)

Of Course cost saving is an evident benefit of eLearning outsourcing. It saves the cost of recruiting, training and maintaining an in-house team, additional costs involved in technology acquisitions, team scaling etc.

6. Future-proofing (will it last for long?)

This is a long term benefit of eLearning outsourcing. Not only do you get innovative solutions that are ahead of the times, on working together for years the vendor understands the cultural requirements of your organizations and aligns the learning solutions with them. Outsourcing also helps in case of expansions both in regional or global level, by scaling the eLearning team and meeting the requirements accordingly, and you are free from the hassles of hiring, training, or retaining them.

However, no matter what perks it offers the shift towards eLearning outsourcing needs great deal of consideration. Everything from the actual decision, to selecting the right vendor, and also understanding how supportive the eLearning vendor is etc. add up to a successful eLearning outsourcing ventures and then come the benefits that we discussed about.

So, here we are at the end. Hope this post gears you up for Happy Shopping …oops! Happy eLearning Outsourcing.
