Is eLearning worth the investment?

Nov 01 2016



eLearning is a major investment for any organisation. It’s critical it achieves its intended benefits and a return.

Let’s consider two case studies for insight on how Canopi clients are achieving benefits and sustainable returns.

Case Study 1

Royal Life Saving’s online First Aid Course was first launched in June 2009. A refreshed version of this course will be released early 2017. That’s a shelf life of nearly six and half years with an original investment of around $40,000. Over that time 45,000 people have enrolled in the course; an average cost of $0.90 per enrolment. With such a small cost per enrolment, RLSSA NSW has been able to build a sustainable business model around the course to ensure there is a ready source of funding for their community advocacy programs. We reckon that’s a pretty amazing return on investment and an awesome way to keep maturing their community education capability!

Case Study 2

Another Canopi client offers an advocacy course for community officiating which is currently being revamped and is due for release early next year. The original course was launched in 2008 with an investment of about $90,000. Since then, there have been about 75,000 enrolments into the course. Canopi supports the course with hosting and delivery services, bringing the total cost per learner to about $2.40. Top quality, multi-media, interactive, anywhere, anytime training for the cost of bottled water. Not bad at all!

We think both these clients should be very proud of their return on investment and demonstrated leadership in Australian digital sports education.
