In today’s fast-paced business world, organizations are turning to e-learning to provide training and development opportunities for their employees. E-learning allows employees to learn at their own pace and on their own schedule, and it can be a cost-effective way for companies to provide training for a large number of employees. However, one of the key challenges with e-learning is ensuring that employees are actually engaging with the material and making progress towards their professional development goals. This is where reporting becomes important.
While most LMS systems offer only limited insight into the learners’ actions within a course, learning experience designers are not limited to using only what their LMS has to offer. The User Flow Analytics tools allow any e-learning developer to start collecting course usage data and produce reports on the users’ actions, clicks, events, locations, devices, browsers, and much more.

Benefits of Reports in a Storyline Course
There are a number of benefits to reporting in e-learning for corporate training and development. For one, it allows managers and trainers to track employee progress over time, which is particularly important in an online setting where it can be difficult to gauge how much an employee is actually learning. This data can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of different e-learning materials and training strategies, which can help to improve the overall quality of the e-learning experience.
Another benefit of reporting in e-learning is that it can help to identify employees who may be at risk of falling behind or not completing the training program. This information can be used to provide targeted support to these employees, such as additional resources or one-on-one instruction, which can help to increase their chances of success.
Finally, reporting in e-learning also helps to keep management informed about their employee progress and performance. This is vital to ensure that training programs align with the organization’s goals and provide employees with the necessary skill sets to meet the company’s objectives.
In conclusion, reporting is a crucial aspect of e-learning in corporate training and development as it enables managers and trainers to track employee engagement, progress, and performance, and make necessary adjustments to provide a better learning experience. It also enables them to be aware of employees who are falling behind and provides them with additional resources to stay on track. Having this data can help managers to evaluate the effectiveness of the e-learning materials and adapt them accordingly to improve the employee success rate.
