The Internet is changing not only the way we communicate, buy things, and share pictures of cats, but also the way we stay up-to-date on new procedures and policies in the workplace. When it comes to staying current on certification or improvements to existing systems, video training sites are taking charge.
Instead of hiring a lecturer to come in and bore their employees for an hour or more, many employers discover videos get the job done just as well, for a fraction of the cost, and without halting office-wide productivity. The pertinent parties are sent a link to the proper video training sites to watch whenever they can. And the IT department is happy too, since the employees do all the video training online, hence nothing to load onto the office hardware.
Universities ad colleges have been on the forefront of video training courses for years now, offering purely online courses as well as supplementing regular classroom assignments with video training sites for skill-intensive areas of study, such as nursing, computer programming, and a variety of trade skills.
And many people turn to video training sites for the sheer joy of learning. Retirees and empty-nesters can fill the days with a new skill, brush up on an old one, or explore an avenue of study they always wished they’d had time for. Online training videos are also perfect for people who are too busy making ends meet to go back to a formal school, but who wish to eventually pursue a different career path.
Whatever the reasons, online video training sites offer people the opportunity to learn at their own pace, revisit a “lesson” whenever they like, and further their education in spite of a hectic schedule. And with technology changing nearly every day, who knows what new ways we’ll learn tomorrow?
