DiTEM – From the Perspective of a Micro-enterprise

DiTEM – From the Perspective of a Micro-enterprise

Exponential Training has been testing a new approach to help micro-enterprises throughout Europe to benefit from digitalisation. Towards the end of 2018, we launched a new e-learning course designed for micro-enterprises and now we are beginning to see the results and the impact of the course.

Why Should Micro-enterprises digitalise?

Managing Director, John Moore, said, “Exponential works with businesses from many different sectors and both large and small, but one thing they have in common is an interest in improving performance and productivity. Since launching the DiTEM course in the UK, nearly 100 managers from UK enterprises have registered onto the FREE six-module course. One of these was Charlotte Clark.  Charlotte works for Taskerly which is Virtual Assistant agency, and which knows the value of digital technology. With a growing and impressive set of clients many of which are based in the States, Taskerly relies on digital technology for communication, planning and coordination.

What did Charlotte say about the DiTEM course?

The course is split into easy-to-manage pieces, so students can complete whole sections in one sitting, instead of losing their place in one large run-on course. It’s easy to navigate your way to each of the sections and it’s easy to go back to the beginning.

It’s also great that the modules don’t seem to have to be completed in any order, so students can pick and choose the order that they study the content. If a student needs to learn how to do something quickly, they can log in and go straight to the module of interest and spend thirty minutes completing it. If someone has a limited amount of time to study, all modules state how long they will take so the student can find one to fit in the time that they have.”

There is content on a broad range of topics that will be useful to all online businesses, and they are all topics that new business owners might not have thought about or studied in great depth. None of the modules include so much information that they overwhelm the student, but instead there’s enough in there to cover the most important aspects to ensure business owners have the information that they need. Overall, the content is visual, easy to digest, and useful for new micro business owners starting their businesses in a digital space.”

Although the official pilot test phase of the project is rapidly ending, it is still not too late to register for a place on the course. Simply, contact john.moore@exponentialtraining.com, check out the DiTEM Course or visit the project website: https://www.ditem.eu/.
