Lifelong learning is the key to any successful career, even if you’re willing to keep your options open to any and all opportunities. Now, as a global pandemic continues to force most of the world indoors, there’s never been a better time to invest in the most efficient way to ensure lifelong learning still happens no matter what’s happening outside.
As knowledge continues to be power, the world has seen a shift – and increased demand – for online courses. And if this isn’t the time to sign up for some proper eLearning, then when is?!
Enter 4K Academy, Malta’s leading eLearning provider.
Long regarded as the golden standard for the island’s virtual training resources, 4K Academy is making it easy for individuals and businesses alike to use their downtime to their advantage and sharpen their skill set.
The easy-to-use platform has a wide variety of courses, including Business Skills, ICT & Microsoft Office, Project Management, Skills for employment, Languages, Financial Management, Compliance, Health and Safety, Social Care and Hospitality.
It’s all about upskilling; whether that means making sure you’re further protecting yourself from redundancy or enabling your workforce to be even more flexible, being armed with more knowledge is the way of the future.
But why eLearning? What’s so good about it?
Gone are the days of traditional lesson attendance being the sole way of attaining knowledge. As life has gotten faster – and our internet connections stronger – a new way of learning has evolved.
Even without a global pandemic shifting the very fabric of our everyday life and forcing us to adapt, the benefits of eLearning are immense and undeniable.
No time (or money) wasted on travelling to in-person sessions, much more flexibility time-wise, highly customisable, quicker and easier to deploy as a whole package since it needs way less logistical planning, higher engagement levels and retention rates… the benefits are endless. Add COVID-19 to the equation, and it’s a no-brainer.
Working with experts and large eLearning publishers to bring a unique (and constantly expanding) catalogue of about 2,300 digital learning products, 4K Academy has got your back.
Want to enhance your career? Need to improve your employment prospects? Yearning to develop your skills? Just looking to learn something now? 4K Academy has it all.
In their own words, “No matter who you are, we’ve got what you need.”
It’s also a great platform to use if you’re looking to bolster up your entire business’ workforce, meet your current training needs, or even plan for the future.
At the end of the day, it’s all about expertise and flexibility.
Sounds good. Can’t I just watch a bunch of free YouTube tutorials though?
Yes… but no.
You can learn pretty much everything on YouTube for free, but you’re not going to be doing a good job of it. At all.
The information is scattered among thousands of contradictory or unreliable videos, and dozens of hours later, it doesn’t really end up adding up to much.
eLearning, on the other hand, is all about curating the important (and correct) information for a specific, promised end-goal, rather than throwing an overwhelming and headache-inducing mishmash or random information at you.
You’ve got learning interaction that’s embedded in the courses themselves, additional downloadable resources to add to the learning experience, continuous education being provided, CDP-approved by accredited publishers… and no long and drawn-out content with some up-and-coming YouTuber begging you to like and subscribe every couple of minutes.
Besides all that, you’re also looking at a highly engaging course that, while giving you independence and the opportunity to tailor-make your training experience, also offers constant support running parallel.
In other words, watching YouTube videos isn’t eLearning. Not by a long shot.
And as if all of that wasn’t enough, 4K Academy is now offering a 15% discount till the end of April 2020 to those who sign up for courses using the coupon 4K15OFF!
That’s right; if you’re signing up for any of the online courses offered through 4K Academy, you will get a nifty 15% discount.
So whether you’re looking to improve your personal skills or that of your company, this is the perfect opportunity to invest in upskilling.
These unprecedented times might’ve caught us all off-guard, but they’ve also presented us with unprecedented opportunity.
Small businesses can make the most effective and productive use of their workforce. Businesses can develop the skills they need to effectively compete with each other and provide customers with high quality products and services. And beyond all that, great reputations for training and development can be nurtured and focused on, improving your company’s credentials for the future.
And all of this can be done through the power of upskilling online.
COVID-19 has changed the way a lot of things need to be done.
As for the way we learn, though, this can truly end up making things better.
So make the most of it now… and let 4K Academy show you the way.
