“When it comes to learning media, books, CD-ROMs and videos are still the most popular methods with our customers, although many companies are now looking to replace their video libraries with DVDs and e-learning continues to grow” revealed Alun Harvey, Open Mind’s managing director.
“Interestingly, this suggests that self-paced learning is still growing in popularity – although many videos and DVDs are also used by trainers, and the ‘traditional’ training course is still alive and well within ‘UK plc’!
