Digital learning benefits your employees by giving the flexibility to learn at a time and a place of their choosing - a major benefit for a remote and dispersed workforce.


You can communicate training, ideas and concepts, quickly and easily to all of your employees and you can deliver your material across your extended enterprise – something we helped the Scottish Association of Mental Health achieve.

Self-directed learning

Moving workforce learning online means your employees can take a more self-directed learning path. They’ll benefit by feeling more engaged and empowered. And it’s also more likely they’ll remember information since they can use it soon after the learning takes place. Something we are helping Morton Fraser achieve.


Another benefit is that digital learning will save you time and money. Expenses normally associated with traditional classroom-based learning don’t apply to digital learning. Depending on the size of your organisation, this could dramatically reduce your overall learning and development costs. Discover how we helped the British Council.


Using a Learning Management System (LMS) makes it easier for you to track (and report on) participation and engagement, to help you demonstrate the value of your training, something eCom has done for many clients. An LMS will also help you demonstrate compliance.
