VAIRKKO’s Certification Cloud has always had a feature that allowed administrators or managers within the system to create Compliance Rules. These rules were a way to measure an employee’s adherence to a set of rules whether required by a governing and oversight agency, or what is valued within an organization. Once compliance rules are set up, it takes a click of a button to measure every employee against the standard to ensure a company is meeting its compliance targets.

E-learning has taken the business world by storm. Originally adopted by educators all over the world, online learning and training has since been adapted to meet the needs of on-the-job training and continued education within an organization. E-learning is still a relatively new concept in both the education world and business world alike. With many sceptics and late-adopters of the learning management platforms, there is still some convincing to do before it is as necessary to a businesses survival as having some sort of cash flow - which, let’s face it, is necessary.
Will E-Learning Replace Offline Learning in a Classroom Setting?
Businesses have been pretty slow to adopt e-learning for their organizations when considering the introduction of technology to the learning process. In the early 1920s, machines were introduced to take tests that helped with grading - think the scantrons of today - and yet, it took another 80 years for organizations to really use these types of tools for the betterment of their companies. While the widespread use of the internet, relatively low costs of personal computers, and ease of use with present-day learning management systems have definitely increased the adoption rate for internal training and an abundance of on-the-job education opportunities, there is still a long way to go.
