If you’re in the business of training and communication, then you know all too well how difficult it would be to translate your message into actual learning and into that change that you are trying to create. For e.g. if you want to learn to change oil in the car, you will not want to spend more time in reading a manual or taking a workshop, instead you will want an expert to show you how to do it. This is where E Learning plays its role by letting you integrate Video, PowerPoint text, audio narration and interactive exercises and games. The learners are allowed to see, hear, read and try what you are trying to teach them. The advantage of ELearning is that the training is recorded and this can be used multiple times and for multiple purposes.
