SAP Education has traditionally delivered most of its training courses in a classroom setting. Students – who we call 'delegates' - sign up weeks, sometimes months in advance to take five days out of their schedules and to travel – sometimes overseas – to take the training at a time and a place dictated by SAP! While classroom training will always have a place in a learning programme, SAP Education is committed to providing access to training wherever and whenever our customers and partners need it. Indeed, other blogs have been written here on SCN about the need to adapt training methodologies to
suit the growing demand for learning via non traditional methods.
In March 2013 SAP Education commissioned the research and consulting firm, Pierre Audoin Consultants to conduct a survey to analyse the trends
in the area of enterprise software training. The survey was conducted across different regions to provide a greater understanding of the trends in diverse cultures and geographies. The initial results of these findings are very interesting, and both SAP Education and Pierre Audoin Consultants are looking forward to providing details in a webinar to be held on 29th May.

We look forward to joining you on the 29th May for what promises to be a very interesting and informative session
Training 'Beyond the Classroom'
Over the first few months of 2013, SAP Education has been running a series of sessions/webinars around the theme of training Beyond the Classroom. It has been our aim with these sessions and related blogs to highlight the varying nature of the tools and practices available from SAP Education which are designed to help people learn at a time and a place that suits their needs.
For easy reference, here’s a brief sampling of what SAP Education has on offer:
The SAP Learning Hub offers fast, easy access to up-to-date learning materials for consultant training on the go. It contains all SAP Education training materials in one hosted solution allowing access to e-learning, Online Knowledge Products as well as hundreds of course manuals.
eLearning courses are another way SAP allow you to learn at a time and place that suit you. From interactive web-based introductory courses to detailed Online Knowledge Products, there are courses designed to suit the needs of nearly everyone. Our new eLearning Subscriptions offer libraries of elearnings to individual users for a 12-month period and we have an expanding range of SAP Learn Now courses designed specifically for the iPad which offer the convenience of learning offline wherever you can take your tablet.
eAcademies are an extension of SAP Education’s elearning courses and bring together system access and detailed online courses to provide a platform for learning SAP solutions in depth and preparing for SAP certification.
Of course, there are times when learners do want the guiding hand of an experienced instructor but would prefer not to travel. Or perhaps our customers may have attendees in multiple locations they want to bring together into a single session. For such scenarios a good option are Virtual Live Classrooms, which provide comprehensive training from SAP experts using seamless over-the Web connectivity.
