One of the key benefits of a career in the IT space is the constant challenge and excitement of working in a rapidly developing field. Whilst this can be a lot of fun, it can also be difficult to keep in touch with new thinking and technologies through classroom or seminar based learning, especially when trying to fit personal and professional development. Online webinars can be a great way to keep in touch without taking up too much of the working day. In this week’s edition we’d like to highlight some online learning resources as we celebrate the launch of the new-look IT Metrics and Productivity Institute website and webinar platform at www.itmpi.org and www.itmpi.org/webinars. Our range of free, PMI accredited webinars cover a range of business and technology topics through the year from a panel of recognised thought leaders in the IT world. If used as part of a structured professional development or training programme online learning resources can significantly reduce the cost of training and development in any organisation, but e-Learning does need to be part of a wider, planned structure with definite business goals in mind. Simply inviting people to “do some online learning” isn’t going to benefit in the longer term. An e-Learning strategy is only part of an organisation’s wider training and professional development plan, but can be an extremely cost effective way of delivering the learning, knowledge and refresher training needed for staff at all levels to get to, and stay at, the top of their game.
