If you are responsible for hotel management training, you likely find yourself repeating the same segments of instructions on a regular basis as you train new recruits or hire at multiple locations. One way to streamline this training, and possibly increase its effectiveness is to consider an eLearning approach to your delivery. This will allow you to prepare training one time and have it available for your recruits whenever you need it.
Training that is the result of "learning conducted via electronic media, typically on the internet" is considered to be eLearning instruction. While the electronic means do sometimes eliminate the need for classroom training, they are by no means simply passive approaches to learning. Using a blended learning approach, you can incorporate many methods of instruction and degrees of interactivity within your content.
Storing eLearning Content
Once you begin considering eLearning options, you will likely question how you will store it so that your learners can access it as needed. Fortunately, some companies have already solved this problem for you. There is special software called a learning management system (LMS) which allows you to house your eLearning content in one location. Students can then access this material and complete assigned courses. Furthermore, this approach to training allows for oversight, tracking, and completion of assessments within the course. Any tests or compliance items that are required by your company can be fully tracked within the confines of your LMS. Reports of results are available at the touch of a button. It's an easy and helpful solution for hotel management training.
