SunSystems End-User Training: Classroom or On-Demand?

Posted by Rick Yvanovich

Find me on:

Effective end-user training is crucial for the successful implementation of SunSystems, a powerful financial management system used by organisations of all sizes. While the software offers powerful features for managing financial operations, the system’s full potential can only be realised when users are equipped to navigate it efficiently.

With that in mind, it is important to consider the various types of end-user training available, their advantages and disadvantages, and how they can be tailored to meet specific organisational needs.

Training for SunSystems End-Users: On-Demand Training Vs Classroom – Which to Choose?

Types of SunSystems user training currently available

In the realm of end-user training, numerous options are available, but two prominent choices that stand out are on-demand training and classroom training. These training methods differ significantly in their approach and delivery, catering to diverse learning preferences and needs.

What is on-demand training?

On-demand training is a self-paced learning approach where end-users can learn at their own pace and convenience. On-demand training for SunSystems end-users is usually offered online, through a learning management system, or through a series of video tutorials. End-users can access the training materials anytime, anywhere, as long as they have an internet connection.

Advantages of on-demand training

  • Flexibility: On-demand training allows end-users to learn at their own pace and convenience. They can access SunSystems training materials anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
  • Cost-effective: On-demand training is more cost-effective than classroom training since it eliminates the need for travel, accommodation, and classroom rental expenses.
  • Customisable: On-demand training allows end-users to focus on specific SunSystems areas they need to improve. They can skip modules they are already familiar with and focus on areas where they need more practice.

Disadvantages of on-demand training

  • Lack of interaction: On-demand training lacks the face-to-face interaction that classroom training provides. This essentially means that SunSystems end-users may miss the opportunity to ask questions and receive immediate feedback from a trainer.
  • Self-discipline: On-demand training requires self-discipline and motivation. End-users may procrastinate and not complete the training if they do not have a set schedule or deadline.
  • Limited collaboration: On-demand training does not offer opportunities for end-users to collaborate and learn from each other.

What is classroom training?

Classroom training is a traditional approach to learning. As you can guess from the name, it involves a trainer and a group of end-users in a classroom setting. Classroom training for SunSystems end-users is usually conducted on-site, at the client’s premises or at a training centre.

Advantages of classroom training

  • Interaction: Classroom training provides face-to-face interaction between end-users and the trainer. End-users can ask questions and receive immediate feedback from the trainer.
  • Collaboration: Classroom training offers opportunities for SunSystems end-users to collaborate and learn from each other. They can share their experiences and best practices.
  • Structured learning: Classroom training provides a structured learning environment with a set schedule and deadlines. End-users are more likely to complete the training on time.

Disadvantages of classroom training

  • Cost: Classroom training is more expensive than on-demand training since it involves travel, accommodation, classroom rental expenses, etc.
  • Inflexibility: Classroom training requires end-users to be present at a specific time and place. It may not be suitable for end-users with busy schedules or those who work remotely.
  • Limited customisation: Classroom training may not be customisable to the specific needs of each end-user. The training may not cover areas that some end-users need to improve on, or it may cover areas that some end-users are already familiar with.

All in all, both on-demand training and classroom training have their advantages and disadvantages. On-demand training is more flexible and cost-effective, while classroom training provides more opportunities for interaction and collaboration. The choice between on-demand and classroom training for SunSystems end-users depends on your budget, schedule, and learning objectives.

You can also consider a blended learning approach that combines both methods to maximise the benefits and investment. Ultimately, the goal of training is to ensure that end-users can use SunSystems efficiently, and you should choose the approach that best meets this goal.
