Take training out of the office with the right remote training software
The number of employees working from home is rapidly growing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be disconnected from each other. Optimize your employee learning experience using remote training tools, and keep your teams in the know, wherever they are.
How online training software keeps your remote workers informed
When your employees aren’t sitting two desks away, keeping them up to date on new policies, products, and processes becomes a challenge.
This is where dynamic remote workforce training comes in:
Ease of use
The platform is easy to use both for learners, and for administrators in charge of managing virtual team training. After employees finish their assessments online, managers can build and download custom reports to keep track of results and performance.
Remote employee training only works if it’s easy for your workers to access. With virtual training software, your remote workers can log in and complete courses at their convenience from any location, at any time.
Reduce instructional costs
On-site training is neither convenient nor cost-effective for training remote employees. Why pay an instructor by the hour when virtual team training costs less money and reaches more learners? With remote training software, you can upload your teaching materials and easily assign training to employees the moment it’s needed.
Keeping remote employee engagement high when you can’t directly observe your workers is no easy task. But with an online training platform that supports a variety of file types, you can upload text, audio, and video to keep them interested. Turn on gamification, and let your employees compete against each other for points and ranking on leadership boards.
Enrich your remote team training experience with intuitive features
Let’s face it: remote employee training is a different ball game, and old-fashioned methods just won’t cut it. TalentLMS’s features were designed with remote workers in mind so that you can innovate your training.
You'll love using these features:
Just because your employees are working remotely doesn’t mean they can’t receive face-to-face training. You can schedule a classroom or webinar session and invite learners to attend. Instructor-led training (ILT) allows you to remain connected with your employees, regardless of distance.
Managing remote employee training can seem even harder than managing regular training. Optimize the process by setting up automated actions that suit your needs. You can remind employees of incomplete assignments and ILT sessions, receive periodic reports, assign, reset, and remove courses, as well as deactivate users.
Mobile LMS App
When your remote workers are on the move, their training needs to be, too. With the TalentLMS mobile app, users can resume in-progress courses, download and complete them offline, and stay in touch with in-app communication.
Don’t waste time sifting through disorganized lists of employees. TalentLMS lets you create branches and organize people into groups based on location, position, or any other label you need. Assign training across branches, or to specific groups based on individual needs.

Most common industries training remotely
For salespeople, product training is only half the battle. Help your reps reach and exceed their sales goals by providing them with effective soft skills training.
Ensure that, regardless of location, your people are all receiving the same training and are equipped to provide a consistently positive customer experience.
With constant product updates, bug fixes, and new features, your employees need a quick and effective way to stay up to date with the latest releases. The fastest way to stay ahead is to deliver this training remotely.
Compliance training, safety regulations, and up-to-date certification can be the stuff of nightmares for any HR team. But rest easy knowing you have a remote training LMS that automatically sends employees reminders before certifications expire, and keeps track of completion rates.
Take your remote work training even further with TalentLMS
The most essential training on the block. With our full-featured LMS, you can train hundreds (or even thousands) of employees fast in your company’s online university.
Optimize workflow across locations, or even between departments under the same roof. Increase collaboration and data collection, and smooth out the process of doing business.
Extended enterprise training
Strengthen brand awareness and generate more revenue by developing a network full of people who know your company and products like the back of their hands.
One of the things I like the best is that it is both an LMS and a content creator. I had a really hard time finding a program out there that combined both, as I was relatively new to the creating of digital training. Their suite was super easy to use which has helped us in training such a remote and spread out team!
How to train new remote workers
Over 66% of companies are encouraging remote work. To help employees who are working from home for the first time, here are some methods to get remote training right:
Vary the way you present information
In addition to standard presentation slides and PDFs, consider using audio, video, and conferencing for a more interactive experience.
Quiz briefly, but frequently
A short, once-a-week quiz for your remote workers takes less time and is more effective than a one-time, hour-long assessment. Employees don’t get bored, and the information stays fresh.
Minimize the learning curve
Make sure the training platform you choose has a minimal learning curve so that you can get your people set up and training in the shortest time possible.
Keeping track of performance is challenging when your employees work remotely. Show that you care about your team’s development with a platform that automatically measures course progress and successful completion. You’ll be able to identify where employees are excelling or lagging behind, and give them an extra nudge.
Make it fun
Working remotely doesn’t have to mean working alone. Use game elements and let employees compete for points (and bragging rights) even when they don’t share a common office.
Offer training on how to work remotely
90% of remote workers say they’re more productive at home than in the office. Help your employees who are working from home for the first time reach higher levels of productivity by creating a course on the best practices for working remotely.
