Online Training courses are designed to guide people through information and coursework, or help trainees to better perform in specific tasks. Some of these courses may even be a workplace requirement by law. As well as presenting course material and content, Online Training gives students the opportunity for live interactions and real-time feedback for things like quizzes, tests and surveys. Interactions between instructors and students are also conducted via an online medium through chat or email.
An Online Training system considerably reduces the travel, venue hire and catering costs that are associated with classroom-based training sessions, while subsequently increasing employee productivity.
A 12-year meta-analysis of research by the U.S. Department of Education published in June 2009, found that higher education students in online learning generally performed better than those in face-to-face courses.
This is a self-paced style of learning because everyone absorbs information at a different rate. The courses are available to learners for completion at a time that’s convenient for them, 24x7.
Online learning opens up opportunities for students who may not previously have been able to access these resources and instructors due to geographical, physical, political or economic constraints.
