Over the last several months, schools and training programs have relied solely on eLearning and remote teaching tools. While the initial adjustment towards online learning may have taken people by surprise, the benefits of eLearning became clear as the process developed. While it may not be ideal for university students to take 100% of their courses online, there are undoubtedly applications for remote education tools.

eLearning doesn’t just sound good conceptually; it actually works. A research study was conducted by Work Learning on the effectiveness of eLearning, and the researchers concluded that, “Overall, these meta-analyses found that eLearning tends to outperform classroom instruction.” The study points to a number of factors, such as repetitious learning techniques and retrieval-practice methods, as to why online learning can be so effective.
While in some cases, such as in university learning, a blend of eLearning and in-class learning can be beneficial, not all types of information require in-person training. Every learning opportunity is unique, and it just so happens that learning the FMCSA clearinghouse rule is most effectively done online.
