Use the digital Scotland strategy to implement e-learning today

Use the digital Scotland strategy to implement e-learning today

The Scottish government recently published a digital strategy entitled: A changing nation: how Scotland will thrive in a digital world.
Within the digital strategy, which should ensure all Scottish people and businesses are comfortable embracing digitisation, are supporting options for businesses to make the most of digital technology.
If there’s one key area of digitisation that could benefit almost all organisations, it’s e-learning. Given the support available from this strategy, now is the time to look at implementing effective e-learning strategies for your organisation.

How to make use of the government support options

The key support option on offer is the Digital Development Loan programme:

  • Interest-free loans
  • Between £5,000 and £100,000
  • Available to SMEs across all sectors
  • To help “adopt and optimise new digital technologies” 
These loans can be used to implement the technology to deliver e-learning and online training – Learning Management Systems (LMSs).
What is a LMS and why do you need one?

What is a LMS and why do you need one?

A Learning Management System (LMS) is a digital platform from which you can administer, deliver and report on e-learning and online training.

Digitising training removes the need for your learners to be all together in the same place at the same time, reducing both the administrative headaches and the associated costs of in-person training. A successful LMS would be cost-effective, boost the efficiency of your training and make tracking things like compliance training and continued professional development simple.
