"By 2019, 50% of all college students will be engaged in eLearning. Today, almost 4.6 million students are studying at least one of their courses online. eLearning is big business - $56 billion and set to double by 2015. Corporations are using eLearning as their second-most important method of training staff for the simple reason that it cuts operational costs by 50 to 70 percent. Not only does eLearning save money, it also saves time. Online classes tend to be around 25 to 60 percent shorter than traditional, instructor-led classes." - SOURCE: CertifyMe.net

“Corporations that change their training strategy from instructor-based learning to online training experience cost savings of 50 to 70 percent. Do the math. Five years from now, where will all the profits be. Where do you want to be?” said a CertifyMe representative.
Online training is also popular with employees. Combined with hands-on experience, it is the most popular method of delivering training.
