eLearning tasks increasing

tts and eLearning Journal present Benchmarking Study at the tts Forum
(PresseBox) (Heidelberg, ) 57 percent of companies want to increase their budget for eLearning over the next three years. That was one of the findings of the eLearning Journal Benchmarking Study 2015 powered by tts, which surveyed 695 companies in German-speaking countries. Corporate leadership has the biggest say on investments - mentioned in 41% of cases - but personnel and functional departments as well as direct managers have an influence on how the learning budget is used. The results of the survey were presented at the tts Forum, which took place on 11 June 2015 in Heidelberg.

IT training at Number 1

In terms of the focus of eLearning, Microsoft Office, SAP and other IT topics are in front (mentioned by 65%), followed by product training (60%) and compliance training (55%). In these areas tts is especially active, for example through Guides for Office 2010 and 2013 as well as Office 365/Online. Content is being produced autonomously in 64% of the firms with the help of authoring tools. Here too, tts offers the right tool: tt performance suite accompanies authors from concept to publication via all phases of eLearning creation. Numerous templates save lots of time in the production process. A further advantage: the authoring tool can be directly integrated into the Learning Management System (LMS).

According to the survey 61% of the respondents use a commercial LMS, because they value consultancy and service. The higher expenditure compared with an open source solution is only a factor for 23% of respondents. As a full-service vendor tts offers, with SAP SuccessFactors, a high-performance LMS and works with customers from requirements analysis through to rollout.

The overwhelming majority of the organizations surveyed (70%) are implementing their LMS as a content platform for the provision of web-based training (WBTs). 56% import external content via the SCORM standard. In 54% of firms learning successes are also checked and controlled via the LMS.

Informal learning gaining ground

Employees are overwhelmingly learning informally - this was also confirmed by the Benchmarking Study. Consequently half of all organizations are providing informal learning via coaching and learning partnerships. To relieve the pressure on key users and mentors, tts has developed a performance support solution, which helps employees in their "moment of need" to find the right solution with just two clicks. They then get not only the information relevant to what they need to do, but are led through the individual work steps graphically in the context of the current task.
