E-learning creativity training: 7 things you need to know

How to use digital e-learning to develop your team’s problem-solving and innovation skills

Did you know that after a decade of successful face-to-face creativity training, we’ve developed our new creativity e-learning courses  during lockdown and our clients are reaping the benefits of working this way.

E-learning is often praised for its flexibility, cost effectiveness, and time saving. It’s ideal for those who don’t like traditional instructor-led classes – but it works just as well with them – known as blended-learning.

If you’re wondering how creativity e-learning could work in your business – we have listed seven benefits below. So which will be most useful to your business?

7 benefits of e-learning for creativity and innovation training

Our number #1 Enable learners to rerun courses over again if required– sometimes getting creative techniques and tools right first time isn’t easy, and not everyone will pick up what was intended in one workshop or webinar. Fortunately, creativity e-learning gives staff another chance to review information at their own pace until they grasp concepts thoroughly and retain knowledge better over time.

At Now Go Create we are finding that our e-learning programme is working brilliantly in conjunction with our workshops and face-to-face training to embed the skills and behaviours needed to innovate.

#2 Work flexibly with teams no matter where they are based– we know that businesses today may employ distributed teams across multiple locations. Traditional offline methods won’t suit every situation so having a mix of online training alongside face-to-face sessions can help ensure that all team members feel involved and included whatever their location. If people cannot attend in-person sessions a webinar can enable groups to develop at the same pace.

#3 Provide more personalised training – whether people want ‘on demand’, self-paced e-learning via their mobile device, or they prefer classroom tuition from an instructor, the strong message is that learners should be able to adapt depending on their learning style. Get more value from your investment by giving people the creative tools they need to learn on their own terms and allow for varying interests levels and aptitudes.

#4 Reduce training delivery costs – As e-learning reduces or eliminates travel time, it can hugely reduce your training delivery costs. Your staff don’t need to spend time travelling to an external venue, plus you don’t need to pay for it. Trainers are freed up to concentrate on what they are paid for – teaching. Plus, you can access a global audience, your training can be sent to international staff at a fraction of what it would cost to fly them in.

#5 Make training fun – while delivering specific skills and instruction is vital for learning objectives, it can be equally important to capture attention and engage learners. This is great for building retention and ensuring all staff enjoy what they are doing. If your current training is a little flat, have a look at how e-learning can be part of your training solution.

#6 Use analytics to measure performance – analytics allow you to compare results from e-learning with offline learning or classroom sessions.

  • For example: did staff learn faster with e-learning or offline learning?
  • Is training easier to retain for e-learning or offline learning?
  • Are certain functions repeated regularly in your business, which means making an e-learning course could save time and money?
  • Answers to these questions can help you to decide if you should invest further in your e-learning program.

#7 Be compliant with changing working flexibly legislation– with changing legislation around flexible working hours there are challenges regarding legal requirements regarding offsite training. Having e-learning options mean managers can track compliance (or non-compliance) easily wherever team members are located.

Think about updating how you deliver training within your organization and see if e-learning is right for you.
