“Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I will learn.” This is the basic fundamental behind one of the most innovative and successful mediums of imparting knowledge to multifaceted audiences – eLearning. Widely used by universities, educational institutes and corporates, eLearning has now become one of the most successful platforms today. The ‘anytime, anywhere’ concept of learning with the use of collaborative tools is the latest mantra today. But in spite of umpteen benefits its way, there are a large number of unseen and tough challenges that pose to become a hurdle for the implementers, to execute a smooth and successful learning curve. Elements like tools shortage, rigid structure of learning, lack of in-depth reports and dashboards to assist all relevant stakeholders about the success of the learning activities are few of the problems that are faced. This is where Business Intelligence Services act as a great savior in making eLearning an indispensable ingredient in the success of any business. With a large number of key areas experiencing the power of BI, this magical medium acts as the apt medium for collecting, monitoring and analyzing the audience’s performance in eLearning environments.
While the eLearning courses are organized looking at the organizational goals and their company strategies, the top management is always interested in knowing the effect that the eLearning courses bring on the skill set and attitude of its employees and hence collection of the entire set of information prior to and after training sessions is a must.

Business Intelligence Services, being a part and parcel of major business domains, proves to be the ideal medium to extract, store and utilize the heaps of information at each stage of the entire eLearning venture.
