Can entrepreneurs benefit from online learning?

By Samantha Garner | May 10, 2010

web video small business trainingWhen it comes to getting well-rounded small business training, what best fits your lifestyle – business courses delivered in a classroom or via online video modules? Entrepreneurs lead busy lives, no matter what stage of entrepreneurship they’re in. Canadian small business courses have traditionally been taught in classrooms, but online learning is becoming more attractive each year.

Is online learning right for you?

A certain blog post by Clive Shepherd has been giving us food for thought lately. The post is titled Online learning is more efficient than face-to-face training – discuss. In it, Shepherd outlines the ways in which he feels online learning is more efficient: it uses fewer resources than face-to-face training, is more conducive to learning at one’s own pace and students don’t waste time or money traveling to a classroom.

At GoForth Institute, we’d heard similar feedback from entrepreneurs themselves. They told us their time and money were valuable to them. They wanted convenience and affordability without sacrificing quality. That’s why GoForth Institute offers online learning for entrepreneurs that can be accessed from any computer – anytime, anywhere. It’s engaging, comprehensive small business education that’s designed for the entrepreneurial lifestyle.

Online learning integrates technology with great education

Personally, we love the thought that something as convenient and inexpensive as online learning exists to make entrepreneurs’ lives easier. We know some people still prefer classroom learning, but for entrepreneurs who are starting a home-based business, live in rural areas or simply don’t want to change out of their pyjamas – we support you!

What do you think – do you prefer web-based training over classroom environments? Do you feel online learning is more efficient? As an entrepreneur, what specific things do you value in online learning? Tell us about your experiences!
