Learn From Home

Reports that the way we work, the way we shop, the way we learn, etc. will be changed forever because of the global pandemic are likely overblown.

But a number of existing trends will be accelerated, including remote work, and remote learning.

Working remote

HR Departments have been in the spotlight during the past two months, as they worked with global employees to help them go remote in response to shelter in place orders around the world.

Many made the initial mistake of trying to replicate office life at home, with endless zoom calls and even surveillance software. Over time, most discovered that remote work required a different approach. Companies deployed new technologies, managers created new processes, and employees developed new skills as they all adapted to remote working.

 What we can learn from the global switch to remote working as we transition to remote learning… coming soon.

Learning remote

Just as working from home requires a new set of skills and processes, so does learning from home. Giving a classroom trainer a zoom account won’t deliver effective remote learning.

Fortunately, we’ve spent the past ten years perfecting the art and science of remote language learning, so we’re here to help you make the transition.

5 Reasons Why The Time Is Right to Take a Look at Remote Language Learning. 

1. The times will continue to demand remote learning 
While we don’t know for sure how long the various shelter in place orders around the world will remain, the prevailing wisdom is that this pandemic will continue to impact the way we work and the way we learn for some time to come.

2. Your people will start to demand remote learning 
Although a lot of workers will be happy to return to their office environment, there is already evidence that more workers are realizing the benefits of remote work. Even when we return to normal, an increasing percentage of your workforce is likely to want to work from home and learn from home.

3. You can learn from those who are already fully remote
Those forced to work remotely for the first time, soon realized that they could learn from those for whom working remotely was their standard operating procedure. Fortunately, the same is true for remote language learning. Many of your peers and their employees have been enjoying the benefits of remote learning for years.

4. You can build on new remote skills to develop global team skills 
As employees become more adept at remote working, the potential to realize the benefit of global virtual teams working together is enhanced. But the ability to work remotely is only part of the equation. By up-skilling your workforce with language learning and intercultural training, you can translate your employees’ remote skills into global team skills.

5. It’s never been easy to evaluate remote language learning
Despite the pressures of the global pandemic, our own global virtual team has recently introduced a brand new approach to remote language learning.
