Questions

Distance learning or eLearning is a fairly old concept that has experienced a massive resurgence due to the variety of developments in computing and Internet technology. With distance learning, teaching and learning is carried out with the use of computers and the Internet, allowing a student to learn at his own pace right about anywhere he has access to a computer and an Internet connection.

The course is not designed to turn people into safety experts. However, all who choose to take it have much to gain in learning why health and safety are integral to what they do as industry professionals, and the benefits of being “informed” can extend to their own personal lives.

Within the context of health and safety training, eLearning can be considered as a relatively new methodology of delivering training. For students, eLearning affords them the opportunity to study at their own pace, according to their own schedule. Some students may breeze through a course whilst there are others who may need a longer time frame. Also, eLearning affords students to forgo certain costs like food and transportation allowances. For employers, the chief benefit is that it does not need to lose staff members for a few days. Other benefits of eLearning are:

  • Lower costs
  • Flexibility
  • 24/7 accessibility
  • Faster training delivery and completion
  • Fun, interactive and engaging training
  • Tutor support
