eLearning for Onboarding
Meet Luigi, a puzzle enthusiast. Luigi loves nothing more than a good jigsaw puzzle, but he’s not as good at putting them together as he thinks. He accepted a new challenge – a 3000-piece puzzle in one weekend! But when he starts to piece it together, he realizes it’s not as easy as it seems. He’s determined to finish it, but he’s missing one crucial thing: clear and easy-to-understand instructions.
“Where there’s a will…there’s a way…(or…50 relatives, rather) what? Okay, focus, Luigi. Find your zen! I’m so smart I don’t even know. catch yourself sometimes,” he gushes trying to find humor in the situation.
“I mean seriously, how hard can it be? It’s just a bunch of little pieces that have to fit together, right?” Luigi says soothingly as he begins sorting through the puzzle pieces.
But as he begins to piece together the puzzle and frantically search for the missing “male corner piece,” he finds himself increasingly frustrated. The instructions are confusing and he can’t find the right pieces to fit together. It’s like trying to understand a physics textbook without a teacher.
Let’s not kid ourselves, he’s not exactly a modern-day Archimedes, but he’s determined to finish the puzzle, no matter how many times he has to turn the instructions upside down and inside out.
“Where’s that peaty corner piece with the red and yellow flowers? I know it’s around here somewhere,” Luigi muttered to himself, inadvertently uttering a few old Italian swear words.
He’s stuck trying to decipher the ancient hieroglyphs known as instructions and still can’t find the pieces that fit together. It’s like trying to solve a physics equation without a calculator – no, that’s not happening!
But with eLearning, Luigi could solve this puzzle like a pro in no time.
As with Luigi, building a product or service for customers or clients can be a complex and overwhelming process, especially when it comes to products or services that have multiple features or require a certain level of knowledge to use. And like a puzzle, if the customer can’t figure out how to use the product, they can give up or return it.
But imagine if he had access to an interactive step-by-step e-learning tutorial to guide him through the process of putting together the puzzle – it would make his life so much easier and less frustrating!
What is eLearning and how can it help with onboarding?
Like Luigi with his jigsaw puzzle, customers can feel overwhelmed and frustrated trying to set up and use a new product. Whether it’s hardware or software, the key to successful onboarding is clear and understandable instructions – and that’s where eLearning comes in!
eLearning, or the use of technology to deliver education and training, can be a game changer when it comes to acquiring customers or clients for your products or services. It can provide clear and concise instructions for customers to follow, just like Luigi’s puzzle box with a picture of the finished puzzle on the box. With eLearning, customers can learn at their own pace and in their own time without the fear of making mistakes. This can be especially useful for complex products or services that may have a steep learning curve.
eLearning can provide the clear and concise guidance customers need to navigate the complexities of a product and help them discover its beauty.
“Wow, this eLearning is a game changer. I finally understand how all the pieces fit together,” Luigi says as he finishes the puzzle with a devilishly satisfied smile.
eLearning for hardware vs. Software products
Imagine Luigi trying to put together a cityscape puzzle, but instead of clear and easy-to-understand instructions, he’s stuck with a confusing manual written in a foreign language. It’s like trying to connect customers to a hardware product without clear and detailed instructions.
The traditional method would be to dig through a thick manual full of confusing technical gibberish and tiny illustrations. But with eLearning, he could simply log into an LMS or website and find interactive tutorials and videos. It’s like having a virtual expert sitting right next to him, taking him through the process step by step.
But you might be wondering, how exactly do you use eLearning to acquire customers for a product? It depends on whether your product is hardware or software.
Let’s start with the software.
Discover the power of software simulation in eLearning.
With a safe and controlled environment, a branching scenario guides you and transports you to a simulated environment that mimics the interactivity of real software.
By simulating the experience, you get to test drive your software in a controlled setting, making your software faster and smoother.
Onboarding is a piece of cake with eLearning and you will get to know everything in no time.
Using similar simulations, you can give customers a hands-on experience with your product or service. This can be especially useful for complex software that can have a steep learning curve. With simulations, customers can experiment and learn at their own pace without the fear of breaking anything.
Now let’s talk about the hardware.
eLearning has come a long way from traditional charts and textbooks. With the development of technology, eLearning has moved towards immersive and interactive learning experiences. Today’s eLearning hardware offers engaging tools such as drag-and-drop activities, 3D simulations, explainer videos, and interactive animations that make learning a dynamic process.
These hands-on interactive features bring learning to life, making learning accessible, engaging and fun. Nothing beats an enthusiastic fan base!
Simplify your learning curve with clear instructions. Your tech-savvy customers/clients will love you for it and will easily adopt your multifunctional products or services in no time.
Think of it as giving Luigi a virtual puzzle where he can make mistakes without ruining the final product and even get hints and tips along the way.
This is the power of eLearning in onboarding customers to both hardware and software products; this makes the process less frustrating and more efficient.

When it comes to onboarding customers to a product or service, eLearning offers countless benefits. These stand out:
