10 reasons why charities should use eLearning

- Advertisement -

TEN charities, including St John Ambulance Cymru and Shelter, have shared the lessons they’ve learned from using eLearning, in a recently published report. The free white paper is packed with top tips and an action plan to help charities take a digital approach to support the skills of their staff and volunteers.

There are lots of reasons for charities to use eLearning, which go way beyond just cost, consistency, speed and accessibility. Tim Drewitt has interviewed 10 charity learning practitioners, to examine how they’re benefiting from using digital resources as part of a blended approach to developing skills.

The report is packed with practical examples of how charities are reaping the rewards of using online learning. For example, Toria Acreman, Internal Training Manager at St John Ambulance Cymru, has found eLearning to be ‘invaluable’ for training staff and volunteers to face the coronavirus pandemic. Kris Medlang, Learning and Organisational Development Business Partner at Shelter, explains the importance of looking for low cost/high impact solutions when you’re spending charity money – and eLearning ticks that box.

All the charity learning practitioners involved share their top tips for successful eLearning. Author Tim Drewitt has also created an action plan to maximise the benefits.

Tim Drewitt commented:

“Whether you’re making the case to start your eLearning journey, or looking to enhance the investment you’ve already made, this report will really help.”

Martin Baker, founder and CEO of the Charity Learning Consortium added:

“Having eLearning at their fingertips has been invaluable for charities during coronavirus. Just take a look at the fantastic example in this report of how St John Ambulance Cymru is using eLearning in the battle to save lives.

“Charities have discovered that they can achieve far more than they ever imagined using technology. But eLearning is just a tool and it’s how you use it that counts, so I’m hugely grateful to Tim Drewitt for shining the spotlight on the inspirational work of learning practitioners in the sector.”
