With the surging exposure and familiarisation of digital technologies in every corner of the world, consumers today can instantly access virtually unlimited information anytime. That immediate convenience has radically changed people's acquisition of new knowledge. This gives rise to a recently popular concept that provides learners with bespoke and self-paced learning—on-demand training (ODT).
What is on-demand training?
On-demand training (ODT) is a strategy that focuses on active and interactive learning and problem-solving1. ODT involves customised solutions for trainees to educate themselves more autonomously at their own pace anywhere and anytime, meaning wherever and whenever it is most convenient for them. Such an active approach has learners value their roles in their personal learning process and facilitate knowledge retention2 3.
On-demand training can also be referred to as just-in-time training, or asynchronous learning, and has long been adopted by many organisations worldwide4. However, remote working popularisation due to the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly accelerated ODT growth.

Benefits of on-demand training for businesses
Even if employees fail to participate in your company's instructor-led training programs, they could still search the Internet for information.
ODT can be customised to suit each business as well as individual’s needs. It emphasises one’s experience and expectations of learning, thus providing the right people with the right information. It can be considered an ethical learning method thanks to the diversity and inclusion it brings to employee training.

Traditional one-on-one or instructor-led training can be expensive and time-consuming. Besides fees paid to institutions and/or instructors, companies also have to pay for costs, like travel and accommodations, material costs, facility and equipment rentals, human resources, etc.
Not to mention, long training hours can even reduce employee productivity and interest in learning.
ODT programs, on the other hand, are customisable on-demand digital solutions. Companies can cut most of the unnecessary costs while ensuring employees still get the adequate training they need.
One encourages microlearning trainees, which is a method of learning believed to have appeared during the early 2000s5.
In essence, microlearning means breaking down content into small and repetitive chunks to increase the effectiveness of learning rather than suffering through long hours of lectures, webinars, workshops, and so on6. Learners can join the training process when necessary.
As a result, microlearning can help with knowledge retention, better engagement, motivation determination, collaborative learning, and overall performance improvement7.

Better training management
Large corporations struggle to keep up with the number of employees they currently have, let alone knowing what types of learning each individual has done and what else they need.
Your employees may become irritated as a result of the repetitive classroom training.
As a technology-based approach, ODT assists business leaders in training tracking, in-depth management, and operational risk reduction, including missed deadlines and outdated certifications.
