Software deployment, installation, configuration, data acquisition, setup of the IT-infrastructure and the reorganization of the in-house workflows: A Software Rollout is a special challenge for every company. A lot of employees need to be trained while doing their daily work. First of all it´s important, that the staff has an positive and open-minded attitude towards the new software solution. Lack of acceptance can lead to big problems when a company tries to launch a new software that changes the way people work.
A tailored blended learning concept can be very helpful in this case: The scalability of e-learning elements ensures that many users can be trained at once in a cost-saving way. To enable an ideal handling, the blended learning concept has to be attuned to the software deployment plan. This ensures that the employees are used to the new software by the time of Go-Live.
Interactive elements and practical examples like simulations allow learning through first hand experience. This is far more effective than simple text-based information or ex-cathedra teaching. Simulations also decrease potential inhibitions of people to interact with the new software. Another advantage: False data input can cause trouble in the original software – that is not a problem in a simulation. Also, the feedback that users receive in the simulation helps to decrease the error rate after the software deployment.
The flexibility of e-learning-Courses makes learning independent from time and place.
What´s also important concerning updates and other news about the software: The content of Web Based Trainings can be updated easily. And they are more attractive to a software-newbie than a manual with hundreds of pages of text.
In combination with face-to-face-training by competent trainers, e-learning elements are a powerful tool to train users in a new software. Mostly it does make sense to first teach the basics with the help of Web Based Trainings. This creates a homogeneous group of learners. In face-to-face-trainings complex questions can be answered and deeper knowledge can be communicated.
