In our fast-moving times, where digitalisation and constant change have become the norm, the way we learn has also changed drastically. E-learning, or electronic learning, has undergone considerable development in recent years. E-learning is thus playing an increasingly important role, especially in production, in order to meet the demands of the market.

In modern production, the need for qualified skilled workers is becoming ever greater. At the same time, technological developments such as automation and AI are driving production into new dimensions. This requires a constant update of the employees' knowledge and also explains why e-learning is gaining importance in production in particular.

E-LEARNING FOR BUSINESS offers various methods of digital learning, from webinars to interactive courses. Thanks to various platforms and tools, such as GLOBAL TEACH®, it is now easier than ever to learn online.

In our new blog post, we, as an experienced E-LEARNING AGENCY, have summarised for you 10 reasons why e-learning in production is a wonderful way to develop employees.


  1. Flexibility: one of the most outstanding advantages of e-learning in production is the flexibility it offers. Employees are no longer tied to fixed training times or locations. They can learn whenever they have time, whether during a break, at home or even during business trips. This flexibility makes it possible to integrate learning into everyday life, which contributes to a better work-life balance and a more effective learning process.

  2. Cost savings: traditional training can be expensive, especially if external instructors have to be hired or employees sent to training locations. With e-learning, travel and accommodation costs are eliminated in production. In addition, once created, training content can be used multiple times and easily scaled, reducing the cost per employee.

  3. Up-to-dateness of content: Production technologies are evolving rapidly. With e-learning, production training materials can be updated in a timely manner to reflect the latest technologies and processes. This ensures that employees are always up to date and increases production efficiency.

  4. Personalised learning experience: Every employee has different backgrounds and learning speeds. E-learning platforms can track the progress and preferences of each individual on the shop floor and tailor content accordingly so that each employee gets exactly what they need.

  5. Consistent training standards: E-learning in production ensures that every employee receives exactly the same training content. This ensures consistent quality and ensures that all employees know and follow the same standards and processes.

  6. Increasing employee motivation: using e-learning in production, including gamification such as point systems or badges, makes learning a fun process. Self-directed learning gives employees the feeling of being in control of their education, which leads to higher EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT.

  7. Direct implementation of what is learned: E-learning on the shop floor allows employees to immediately apply what they have learned in practice. This promotes "learning by doing" and ensures that the acquired knowledge is actually used in everyday work.

  8. Data-driven progress monitoring: Learning Management Systems (LMS) provide detailed reports and analysis on the learning progress of each employee. This enables teachers and managers to quickly identify where retraining may be needed and what content is most effective.

  9. Integration into everyday work: microlearning, i.e. learning in small, easily digestible units, fits perfectly into short breaks or waiting times. This ensures that learning is not perceived as an additional burden, but as a natural part of the working day.

  10. Environmental friendliness: by eliminating travel for training, e-learning in production reduces a company's carbon footprint. In addition, the use of digital materials reduces the need for physical resources such as paper or ink, which helps to protect the environment.
