5 Remote Training Tools to Engage Your Remote Employees

As remote work becomes increasingly prevalent, it’s crucial for companies to find effective ways to train their employees remotely. In this article, we will present five remote training tools. We will discuss their potential benefits and drawbacks. Each tool offers unique advantages, and the best one for a particular situation will depend on the needs of the trainees.

However, as we have previously highlighted in our article “Strategies for Implementing Remote Employee Training,” engagement and interaction are key to success in remote employee training. In this article, we will delve into the specific tools available to support these strategies and enhance remote employee training.

1. Video Conferencing: Real-time Interactions with Remote Employees

First, video conferencing. This tool allows you to connect with your trainees in real-time, creating a sense of community and building relationships. Imagine, your customer service team can hold regular team meetings and training sessions, all while working remotely. Pros of this method include real-time interactions, but it may require additional equipment and infrastructure.

2. E-Learning Platforms: Flexible Training Materials at Your Fingertips

Discover the benefits of e-learning platforms for remote employee training. Bookboon Learning, for example, offers a variety of training materials such as ebooks, podcasts and virtual classrooms that employees can access at any time. Utilize Bookboon Learning to provide ongoing training. The platform offers flexibility and 24/7 access. Additionally, it allows you to track and monitor employee performance, making it easy to keep track of progress.

3. Webinars: Cost-effective One-way Training for Large Audiences

Third, webinars, they offer real-time interactions between trainers and trainees but in a one-way format, where the trainer delivers a presentation to a large group. A marketing company can use webinars to provide training on the latest digital marketing strategies to its clients. Pros of this method include cost-effectiveness and large audience reach, but it may not be suitable for hands-on or interactive training. On Bookboon Learning we offer Live Virtual Classrooms, watch one by former BBC producer Esther Stanhope for free.

4. Screen Sharing: Hands-on Learning for Remote Teams

Fourth is screen sharing. This tool allows trainers to share their computer screens with trainees, making it easy to demonstrate software or other digital tools. A software development team can use it to provide training on a new program they are working on to remote team members. Pros of this method include hands-on learning, but it may require specialized software or hardware.

5. Gamification: Interactive and Engaging Training for Remote Employees

Finally, gamification. This tool utilizes game-like elements, such as points and badges, to make training more engaging and interactive. A language learning app, for example, can use it to make learning a new language more fun. Pros of this method include interactive and fun learning, but it may not be suitable for all types of training.

In conclusion, these five remote training tools offer a variety of benefits for your remote employees’ learning experience. Choose the one that best fits your needs and watch engagement soar. Remember, the key to effective remote employee training is engagement and interaction.  Keep in mind the pros and cons of each tool before making a decision.
