Whether it is protecting the environment, regulating an industry, distributing benefits or preventing fraud, government agencies need cooperation and compliance from an educated public to be effective. Accomplishing this education is often challenging due to the schedules and geographic location of the people the agency is trying to reach.
These challenges are inspiring progressive government leaders to turn to eLearning. With eLearning, agencies can efficiently reach targeted segments of the public with consistent training content. In addition, they can track which members of their target successfully complete the training. In some cases, they may even mandate training before providing access to benefits.
Through our experience, we have learned some best practices for government leaders who want to use eLearning. These practices include the following:
Over my years of experience with learning technology, I have seen progressive government leaders use eLearning to reach teachers, municipal water system operators, farmers, police officers and many other segments of the population. With eLearning, they are able to ensure that consistent, high-quality training is conveniently available. In addition, they can track which members of the targeted group successfully completed the training.
