E-learning is both the present and the future

A course platform is the very basis for effective e-learning. This is where you share all the professional content with the participants and carry out knowledge level testing. On our platform, you post all the material you want to use and we take care of technical operation and maintenance

The solution is based on “drag & drop” so that you decide which elements you want to include and how the layout should look. Everything automatically adapts to the participant’s own screen, regardless of whether a mobile, tablet or PC is used.

There is little doubt that effective e-learning on course platforms is a large part of the future for courses and training. The generation that is now young people is already used to much of the school teaching taking place at home via the internet. Although flexibility in everyday working life is already quite widespread, the generation that is on the way will expect these opportunities to be available in everyday working life, when they will enter the labor market in not many years.

This means that a good course platform is not only useful for professional updating of employees, it can also help to attract new talented people in the future. Many of the most desirable people are concerned about what kind of professional development opportunities the company can offer.


Advantages and disadvantages of e-learning

Effective e-learning on course platforms is simple, so it is easy to implement this just to keep up with the times. Therefore, it is wise to familiarise yourself with the advantages and disadvantages of this type of learning.


1. Costs

Participants have access to the platform via all types of devices, as long as they are connected to the internet. This cuts costs for renting premises, transport, electricity, internet access and required facilities. Everything happens on the participant’s own screen.

In a business that has several departments, it will be possible to reduce transport costs related to courses and seminars quite considerably.

2. Efficiency 

The course is created once and can be reused as many times as desired, instead of having to carry out physical teaching again and again. This is effective e-learning. Both course host and participants also avoid commuting to and from the course location, as you can log in from wherever you are at any time. It also means that the participants can attend the courses when it suits them and therefore have full focus during the time they spend.

3. Forward looking 

There is no getting away from the fact that more and more communication takes place digitally. You talk to friends, shop, watch TV and read news online, so it seems obvious that effective e-learning is also the future. 2020 was the year it really took off when everyone was going to start home school and home office. Many a course has been ruined by poor technology and planning. That is completely unnecessary when there are course platforms like ours.



Although experience suggests that online students become more self-disciplined, it is easy for disengaged students to slip away.

Interactivity in the platform and carrying out tests works effectively against this. Among other things, we have developed a quiz solution that can easily and playfully take the participants through a check of their knowledge level.


The internet creates distance between participants compared to being present in a course room. This is why we have arranged the course platform for interaction between the course instructor and participants. Participants can, for example, enter questions that the course leader can answer directly.
