I am currently on work experience at eLamb, and they have asked me to write a few lines on my experiences of taking eLearning courses.
As a student in Leeds, I have had a couple of jobs in the hotel industry to help fund my living costs and through this I have come across e-learning courses on topics such as [orange]alcohol laws[/orange] and [orange]general health and safety[/orange].
My experience of eLearning is that it is very text heavy and time consuming, which naturally makes me tempted to skip through the tasks and not fully understand the information.
I probably shouldn’t admit to that but eLamb told me to be honest!
Skipping through the training could be prove to be very costly if the information was ever needed whist I was working, for example learning how to handle intoxicated guests and making sure I am serving over 18’s only…which I do!
In regards to eLearning, I believe there should be a much more exciting approach to doing these tasks, which the guys at eLamb are constantly working on with their [orange]custom made[/orange] eLearning courses and [orange]off the shelf[/orange] courses.
I should finish off by saying the eLearning courses I have completed to date have not been created by eLamb, if they had been I am sure they would have been really fun and interesting!
