E-Learning for the Workplace: Creating Canada's Lifelong Learners - Cisco Systems (2001)

Cisco Systems, a world market leader in networking technology, uses its own Internet networking solutions to train and develop its employees.

Cisco designs, develops, tests, markets and releases many new products each year. Relying solely on traditional classroom training to get employees up to speed on new products would be ineffective and inefficient.

Instead, to streamline professional development, Cisco designed and implemented a comprehensive e-learning strategy called the Cisco Learning Network (CLN). Through the Internet, Cisco has been able to deliver training to its global workforce more reliably than ever before.

Key strategies in the CLN include content-on-demand training that allows participants to access training whenever and wherever they want; live Internet broadcasts and rebroadcasts to users in multiple sites; online seminars providing a cost-effective integrated audiovisual format with built-in accountability and measurability; virtual classrooms and remote labs that provide access to equipment and training too costly to replicate locally for every learner; and simulations delivered over the Internet to help employees understand complex topics.

With the CLN, quality is consistent and content can be updated quickly and easily. As well, travel expenses and classroom scheduling costs are greatly reduced.
