What is eLearning?

Everyone knows what eLearning is, right? Wrong! While the word means electronic learning, that’s where the similarities between most eLearning and Amatrol’s version end. Most electronic learning exists because traditional learning materials, such as books, were converted to an electronic format for convenience.

What are the Advantages of eLearning?

Amatrol eLearning boasts many advantages over more traditional forms of technical training. For example, it’s:


Amatrol eLearning represents the most comprehensive, complete technical training solution available today. The Amatrol library consists of hundreds of courses with thousands of hours of in-depth technical training, and it’s always expanding.

No one else offers the depth and breadth of technical training that Amatrol does. Schools and businesses can benefit from courses across 16 different technical topic areas.


Amatrol eLearning features a competency-based instructional design that focuses on skill development directly related to the core competencies relevant to modern industries. Each course begins with foundational knowledge and builds to more complex topics.

Amatrol courses also take an active problem-solving approach that teaches key troubleshooting skills that learners will need on the job. In addition to foundational knowledge, Amatrol courses build hands-on skills by focusing on the practical application of knowledge to real-world scenarios learners will encounter in the workplace.

Amatrol’s eLearning consists of interactive multimedia curriculum that appeals to multiple learning styles, including auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. No two people learn the exact same way, and Amatrol courses are designed to be a superior learning experience for all types of learners.

Rather than simply reading an electronic version of a textbook, users of Amatrol eLearning experience visually-appealing graphics, 3D simulations, animations, and videos. Auditory learners will also appreciate the voiceovers of all text. Kinesthetic learners will reinforce their knowledge via interactive quizzes and exercises.


Amatrol eLearning offers unmatched flexibility for both students and instructors. Its modular design breaks down topics into manageable segments, each with objectives, activities, skills & self-reviews. This allows learners to set their own pace through the material.

Amatrol courses are available to learners anytime, anywhere with Internet access. This 24/7 access makes Amatrol courses perfect for individuals, classes, or a blended approach. Flexibility is important, and Amatrol eLearning lets students learn in or out of the classroom and with or without an instructor present.


Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser.

Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.

Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion.

Does eLearning Work?

Not only is Amatrol eLearning easy-to-use and cost-effective, it’s simply a better way for students and workers to learn foundational knowledge and build hands-on skills relevant to industry.

For example, the Research Institute of America found that eLearning retention rates (25%-60%) far exceeded those of traditional, face-to-face training (8%-10%). When you give Amatrol eLearning a try, it’s easy to understand why it’s so effective.

Amatrol puts learners in control of the learning process. They can set their own pace, learning whenever and wherever it’s convenient for them. Self-reviews allow learners to identify areas where they need more focus before moving forward.

The interactive multimedia format of Amatrol’s eLearning also appeals to learners with different learning styles. Whether you’re an auditory, visual, or kinesthetic learner, Amatrol eLearning includes features that let you learn in the style that suits you best.

As learners progress through an Amatrol eLearning course, key foundational concepts are repeated. The competency-based instructional design of each course also engages learners in active problem solving tied to real-world, practical applications.

Learners never ask, “When will I ever use this?” With Amatrol eLearning, it’s clear how foundational knowledge relates to hands-on skills learners will use on the job. That’s why Amatrol eLearning is the proven, trusted technical training solution of so many schools and businesses.

Can You Build Hands-On Skills with eLearning?

When it comes to technical training for modern industry, the importance of building hands-on skills cannot be understated. That’s why Amatrol eLearning’s competency-based instructional design focuses on building industry-relevant skills.

While Amatrol eLearning can effectively be used by itself, Amatrol manufactures a wide variety of training equipment designed to complement its eLearning courses to provide learners with hands-on experience with real industrial components they will encounter on the job, such as programmable logic controllers from Rockwell Automation and industrial robots from FANUC.

However, it’s not always possible to provide access to hands-on training equipment to multiple students simultaneously. Fortunately, more than 20 Amatrol training systems include Amatrol eLearning with Virtual Trainers that replicate the look and feel of real equipment.

Learners using Amatrol Virtual Trainers can perform the same hands-on skills they would on actual equipment. Amatrol’s Virtual Trainers are obviously a great alternative when hands-on equipment is in use or otherwise unavailable. However, they are also perfect for learners to practice on before performing hands-on skills with real equipment.

Is eLearning Available for Certification Preparation?
