What can be done to give digital education human qualities?
Why can digital education positively impact any organization?
My name is Maciej Czerniawski. I’ve been building professional digital education tools for organizations for years. Many of our clients perceive them as the most intuitive they’ve encountered.
Our mission is to bring the most intuitive mobile learning solutions to as many people in the world as possible.
We will achieve this goal – thanks to the ecosystem of educational platforms based on e-LEA Technology created by our company and cooperation with Partners and educational experts.
All the time we are open to comments and suggestions on what to do even better. If you ask me whether the platform based on e-LEA technology is perfect? The answer is that there are no perfect solutions and our platform is no exception. However, it is created in such a way as to meet the expectations of intuitive use by both the authors publishing educational materials and the users undertaking their studies.
The Guide page is designed to answer the question of how to take a systemic approach to education in organizations such as universities, companies, institutions and schools.
Thanks to e-LEA technology we are able to support any organization for which education is important.
For universities we launch, intuitive and modern educational platforms (LMS) which, importantly, meet all legal requirements for remote education. Live lectures in a form of so called virtual classroom, video, audio, video materials, exams, quizzes are available 24h on any device. We believe that our task is to make the learning process with the use of the platform based on e-LEA technology as user-friendly as possible. Thanks to the user-friendliness of the solution, students are more than 60% more likely (according to elearningindustry.com) to look at the educational materials. We also provide tools to attract more students or generate additional income for the university and the authors by distributing the materials outside the university. I will be happy to talk about this during individual consultations, to which I invite you.
Enterprises expect internal education on the correctness of the implementation of corporate or product processes and extended education on soft competencies. Thanks to our support in realization of internal trainings and trainings on hard competences as well as delivery of the platform we efficiently meet our clients’ needs. As a result of cooperation with experts in soft skills we are also able to deliver trainings prepared by leading trainers in the country.
Enterprises also expect hard data. Apart from the fact that the platform is used successfully by universities it has more advanced educational features than even what enterprises expect. This can only help in making a positive decision to implement a platform based on e-LEA technology. The hard data is the result of economic calculations performed together with our clients. They show that if digital learning were applied to just 75% of training projects, budget savings should amount to more than 50% of the amount invested in training and employee development. For a company employing 1000 people, savings can range from PLN 300 thousand to over PLN 1 million per year.
A few more interesting facts:
Since 2010, the number of employees changing employers due to a lack of skills development opportunities has increased by 170% and 55% of business managers say it will be impossible to innovate due to a lack of team knowledge. (according to elearningindustry.com).
Research conducted by ASTD the American Society for Training and Development shows that the 25% of companies that invest the most in employee education and development on average earn 24% more company revenue and 218% more revenue per employee compared to the 25% of companies that invest relatively the least in employee education and development.
Implementation of a learning platform is a natural process that will increase the profitability of the company and will not limit innovation and reduce employee turnover in the company. On this occasion, I encourage you to contact us and in just a few days your company can have the most friendly platform for team education and systemically solve the issue of team education.
Read more about the systematization of the process below.
We are open to presenting e-LEA startup platforms. It’s just one hour for an online meeting and it can positively impact the future of any university or business.
So where to start?
- has the highest cost efficiency ratio
- automatically verifies the level of assimilation of educational material
- It’s flexible
- it’s available anywhere you want
- allows you to learn at your own pace
- Enables learning on any device
- offers a lot of ready-made training courses
- ensures optimal use of: time, natural resources, energy savings of 90% and reduces Co2 emissions by 85% (according to the results of an open university study in the USA – elearningindustry.com)
- has a “pause, stop, repeat” function – for easier understanding of complex educational material
- increases engagement in the learning process through gamification features
- encompasses the entire educational process from need to knowledge acquisition and verification.
- adapts to the individual needs of each organization
- gives prestige because the educational materials are provided by recognized experts
- is the ideal solution for education during strict sanitation.
Optimization of the educational process
Based on the results of research published by Elearning Industry, it is known that modern methods of education in the broadly defined e-learning provide equally favorable, if not more favorable, results of knowledge acquisition than traditional forms. People using digital solutions for education remember 60% more information than those using traditional forms of communication.
Traditional forms used to be the main way to educate students or employees. However, this form has its limitations. These are: a relatively high level of costs compared to other forms of education, quantitative or time limitations. More and more often, there is an argument about the difficulty of verifying the effectiveness of the knowledge acquired in this way, as the results are difficult to measure.
An interesting fact is the process of forgetting – illustrated by the so-called „Ebbinghaus’ forgetting curve”. It shows that already an hour after the transfer of information, 50% of it is forgotten, and another 25% within the next day. If the educational material is not repeated, then within a month just over 20% will be remembered.
The practice shows that not many educators look into the educational materials after the training or lectures. One of the reasons may be the lack of systematic verification of the level of knowledge. We know how it works with students whose “memorization curve” increases dramatically before the exams themselves. However, for both students and employees, it is possible to apply automatic system solutions on the educational platform, which will periodically verify the level of knowledge. This can only help.
For companies, you need to verify learning progress. Simply "giving" knowledge is not enough
Most employers say they do not have the tools to verify the level of learning of their employees. This, in turn, causes employees to have no extra motivation to learn and simply do not do it. The conclusion is – just giving knowledge does not work. Employees need to know that their level of learning will be verified and that good performance can not only help them develop, but can also be appreciated by the employer and have a significant impact on the course or development of their career.
Make access easy. Get efficiency without overloading
Take advantage of reliable tools.
Effectively engage in learning
Reach the educational optimum
As Benjamin Franklin said – “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. “
The functions described above correspond to the needs defined during conversations with entrepreneurs and university employees in Poland, Germany, and the U.S. over the course of 2016-2019. The functions responsible for knowledge acquisition are based on research results and educational trends corresponding to the expectations towards education of students and employees. All of this came about from the hard work, passion, and desire for excellence that accompanied our team as we built the educational technology and ecosystem of e-LEA (e-lea.pl). I have been personally involved in the creation of this solution for years and I believe it will bring a lot of value to every organization that uses it.
