They See Advantages over others
Most e-learning companies have IT background and limited training background, thus they fail to understand the science of training. They would have good technology understanding, but E- Learning is not only about technology alone. The major role is about the content, context and knowing the audiences. Thus the course ware and content plays upper hand role over technology.
PeopleSide Consulting has completely different approach. This advantage is because the company comes from training background and has now developed technical capabilities. The company develops the solution around the Learner and content, while many of the competitors develop solution around the technology; this restricts learning and has gap in knowledge transformation, the reasons why e-learning programmes would fail.
The company proudly holds an excellent ability to design and develop e-learning solutions to suit most modern LMS technology, HTML5 based technology, having engagement tools like gamifications, simulations, Real time content search and FAQs with audio and video content.
Challenges that Overcomed by the Organization
Two major challenges the company had faced, is most of the times client companies are not able to make quick decisions, while the work is in progress companies delay giving their feed backs and do the reviews. This many a times causes delay in delivering entire project. And on the other hand stakeholders from client companies are not updated with change in technology, like authorizing tools, animation tools, and other production tools. Technology in this sector changes very fast, as this industry is growing globally and at fast space. Thus managing this space is critical from the course ware production point of view and investments.
Major issues for the companies in this field are talent & skilled workforce. We as a country have huge potential to be leader in this segment, and become development partners for course development, content development and learning production for Global markets, which will also create huge employment opportunities in India.
Future Executions of PeopleSide Consulting
The industry has a promising future, many organizations, education sector will have to adapt this change and move to technology based learning. The skill gap and bridging skill gap in limited time frame will force industry to make use of technology. Have right content and right delivery technical platform, being innovative, cost effective will play a key role.
