Distance learning


Distance learning is becoming more and more important because it meets the critical training needs of organisations.


The design of training and coaching programmes meets severe constraints:

  • The need for companies and organisations to ensure the coverage of key roles;
  • The search for efficiency in training investments;
  • The effectiveness of training programmes in the specific organisational context, which increasingly requires co-design skills;
  • The need for tools and technologies able to accompany training efficiently.

Distance learning (FAD) helps to overcome these constraints and has several advantages:

  • It does not require a physical location and does not present logistic constraints;
  • It is compatible with smart-working;
  • It makes it easier to match training plans and key role coverage;
  • It requires lower investments;
  • Allows participants to stay connected to the teacher regularly;
  • Facilitates the distribution of teaching materials and the communication between participants, even when located in
  • different locations and different countries;
  • It enables the participation by people in smart-working or people who, for various reasons, are temporarily unable to go to work.

We are also aware that distance learning can have some drawbacks:

  • It makes the empathic teacher-participant interaction, typical of classroom training, more complex;
  • It can represent a barrier for people less used to technological solutions.

Our distance learning solutions take into account the different factors involved when designing and selecting the tools to be employed:

  • the needs of companies and organisations in general;
  • the advantages and disadvantages of distance learning offer;

Below are the tools that we use regularly:

  • a software solution for the distribution of e-learning courses (Learning Management System, LMS) that is easy to use and capable of generating detailed reports;
  • a catalogue of e-learning courses capable of:
    • support the development of key competences;
    • provide the basis for further strengthening in classroom sessions or videoconferencing;
    • allow the participant to study individually, without the presence of the teacher and the other participants.
  • videoconferencing tools that will enable managing distance learning sessions effectively:
    • participation tracking;
    • communicate effectively, in audio and video;
    • share multimedia content;
    • create groups among participants, manage exercises and role-plays;
  • discussion groups that provide several advantages:
    • Count on the assistance of the teacher during the study;
    • Discuss specific topics with the teacher and other participants;
    • to deal with aspects related to individual experiences;
    • maintain a uniform view of the issues covered;
    • access to content quickly.
