The e-Learning has crossed borders and no longer seeks simply revolutionize education but seeks to innovate the corporate level and especially the training of employees. For this reason, at IEBS we are committed to this methodology, to offer the best practices through innovative learning that moves away from traditional and traditional methods. Since this is the only way to offer an education 100% adapted to current times.
As a result of this, companies have begun to bet on e-Learning for the training of their workers due to the advantages it brings to the organization: lower cost than the traditional one; more flexible hours and without the need to travel; more dynamic, entertaining and practical for professionals and with a methodology that allows easy execution thanks to the Internet.
However, although the emergence of business e-Learning is unstoppable, we believe that companies still have to gain experience in its application . To date, there has been no investment in quality online training and a substitute for what it really has to be has been being delivered, simply by posting old corporate training documents on the Internet or leaving traditional training aside immediately.
This is why the IEBS pedagogical model focuses on the student and their learning experience. We want to avoid the classic model centered on the teacher, the content and the exams, with content prepared and updated by the teachers themselves, considered experts in their sector, as well as 100% practical learning.
Furthermore, e-Learning does not have to clash with other training and it is necessary to assess when to apply one model or another or when to combine them to achieve the only thing that has to matter: quality training for workers that meets their needs and competencies .

What is business e-Learning?
Corporate organizations tend to take care of the selection and hiring of workers, they seek to have the best professionals on their staff; however, they often neglect the training of their employees. An ambitious company will always want its workers to continue developing their skills, to be more effective or to know their functions better. This is what e-Learning is about, integrating human capital management with knowledge management.
In recent decades, large companies gave expert seminars, which cost them large amounts of money, with traditional classes that did not motivate workers and that ended up boring rather than training.
Was there a solution? Yes, the answer was in e-Learning. An online educational method that reduces costs, allows the training process to be analyzed and quantified, to be taught with the most innovative methods and tools and, in short, is to bet on training that corresponds to current times: modern, digital and effective.
It is here where IEBS saw the need to create IEBS In Company – Training for Companies , a learning model that is focused on the most modern management techniques and that are transforming society, professional activities and organizations.
Because at IEBS we believe that human capital is the most important part of a company, therefore, it is essential to have a motivated, dedicated and updated team. Only in this way, the success of a company can be guaranteed.
Proposals to apply e-Learning in the corporate sphere
1 # Self-training
The objective is for the student to learn on their own and on their own, that is, they are monotonous. The problem is that with this type of training plan both the completion rate and the student’s commitment are low.
2 # Webinars
They inspire the employee and inform him of new trends, techniques or tools. They are popular because they motivate the employee “edutainment” and have the advantage of being low cost and allowing them to be distributed over the network without the need for anyone to travel, as in the case of a classic face-to-face seminar.
3 # Collaborative Online Classes
They require commitment and time from employees but their results are excellent. They allow to teach the employee a competition or train a skill. It is a type of training that is based on practice and perseverance.
4 # Online Pills
This format was created to keep employees up to date on trends such as tutorials and guides for the use of tools, techniques and software. It looks like the previous one but there is no interaction with the teacher. They are characterized because they are video courses and short-duration tutorials, “microlearning”, which seek to help the worker to solve a problem immediately.
5 # MOOC
They are massive open and free courses. These types of courses have many applications in companies and more and more are developing MOOCs to train their employees or communicate key values and competencies.
It is a format that allows to extract the knowledge of an organization, document it and train large volumes of employees at a very low cost.
At IEBS we also bet on MOOCs as a learning method, such as the most prominent of e-Sports , a trend that is the order of the day.
6 # Adaptive learning
They are still under development although it will allow to increase quality and reduce costs through artificial intelligence and automation.
It is an evolution of the self-training model. The content adapts automatically to the pace, capacity and progress of the student automatically through Machine Learning.
Practical cases of e-Learning in companies
