E-learning has the power to increase information retention rates by up to 60%

Although the inforgraphic below does not specifically look at the use of e-learning in the UK it is an interesting snapshot of the US and global situation. Of particular interest to those of us who are involved in training is that e-learning has the power to increase information retention rates by up to 60%. This is a statistic that hasn’t commonly been published in the past, but is significant in the drive for increased retention and achievement of qualifications. The most likely reasons for this statistic are that:

  • users can self-assess whether they have understood and retained the information they have been given in a non-threatening environment. They can re-engage in the learning as a result of their self-assessment, without threat of bringing attention to themselves
  • learning can be re-visited as often as the user feels they need to for the duration of their access to the e-learning and reptition is a good way of remembering facts. Of course it is them important to turn knowledge into competency
