The results of studies have shown that the ability to understand and perceive certain subject matters in various ways and in a different environment delivers positive effects. This is what learning points are based on, as they trigger various ways of perceiving information in individuals. Learning points also have other advantages and benefits: they help to increase knowledge about new developments which only certain target groups know about, they promote knowledge, places or organisations where they are placed. Learning points help further develop the knowledge of individuals and they connect knowledge at various levels in a simple, yet effective way. Viewing a teaching point can be combined with a visit to an organisation or the surrounding area where the teaching point is placed; it represents a special experience to individuals or groups of people.
