Corporate Training Goes Online: Loud Class Leverages WizIQ to Boost Productivity
Corporate training is a $200 billion industry and online training will soon gobble up a large share of this, which is evident from 2011 data: 77% of organizations were using eLearning (Statistic by IBIS Capital) as compared to only 4% in 1995.
It’s an open secret that more and more organizations are dumping traditional, instructor-led training for online sessions to reduce training costs and boost employee productivity.
Loud Class, the biggest ESL training institute in Korea, is one such organization that has happily switched to online workshops for its teachers. The institute employs more than 1300 teachers in 170 centers, spread across the length of Korea. These teachers in turn provide English language skills to 45000 students.
Loud Class believes in providing the best-in-class training to its teachers. However, bringing all these teachers located in different centres to central headquarters was a huge drain on resources as well as teachers’ time.
Loud Class thus began searching for an online training solution that would help them mete out powerful, live, face-to-face, and engaging sessions. After trying a few other platforms, Loud Class finally zeroed in on WizIQ and its award winning virtual classroom WizIQ Virtual Classroom to deliver the most effective online training sessions. Since switching to eTraining, Loud Class has reported high levels of attendance, quality training sessions, elimination of travel costs, and positive feedback from the trainees.
