Green Tip: Let elearners telecommute
If you have a learning management system (LMS), you can take advantage of its tracking features in a way that helps reduce the learning carbon footprint. Allow learners to take the training from home - you know when they are online and if they accessed or passed the course. Does it really matter if they 'elearn' from home or from work? Plus, it could have a very positive impact on learners who have to commute long distances. Telecommuting helps the environment and gives employees more control over their life, especially if they are given a choice. It doesn't work for everyone, but when it's possible, it can make a difference.
- Inside Training offered a telecommuting template a couple of weeks ago.
