In this day and age, everybody and their mother seem to offer online training courses. Enterprises that want to train their employees seem to be spoiled for choice, with thousands of eLearning shops and tens of thousands of available courses on all possible topics. But then another issue arises: will it be pre-developed or custom eLearning course development?
Given this over-abundance of eLearning material, does it really make sense for a company to develop its own custom eLearning courses? Wouldn’t opting for some off-the-shelf material be the fastest and cheapest solution?
Indeed, it might be. But what’s fastest and cheapest isn’t always also good for you (if it was, McDonalds would be the perfect diet). Nor does the fastest and cheapest option necessarily have the best return of investment. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.
