British Austerity Helps E-learning

Two thirds of U.K. public-sector learning and development and training professionals expect to improve the level of service they can deliver to their organizations, thanks to an increase in e-learning and collaborative working.

New Brightwave research finds that 88% plan to increase their use of e-learning in order to meet new Government cost-reduction targets. A further 58% predict more collaborative working and 49% will reduce classroom-based training to help cut costs.

The projected increase in the use of e-learning has continued, rising by 76% over the past two years. At the start of 2009, only half of L&D professionals expected to increase the use of e-learning, whereas 88% currently anticipate an increase. In addition, more L&D professionals expect to collaborate — rising from 42% saying they expect to take this approach in 2009, to nearly 60% who currently expect more collaborative working.
