Web Based Training Benefits

Web-based Training (WBT) is coming of age. Bandwidth issues are being handled with wide spread availability of new data transmission capabilities, instructional design strategies and breakthrough software.

Outstanding learning outcomes are being achieved using "Accelerated Learning" design and instructional methods. As a result, people are now getting measurable benefits.

Learners benefit

  • Learning time is often dramatically reduced over instructor led training while at the same time getting results that are equal to and sometimes superior to classroom learning
  • You can learn at your own pace
  • Schedule learning when its most convenient for you
  • Have immediate access to courses for reinforcement

Trainers benefit because they no longer have to invest large blocks of group interactive time for participants to learn content. Rather, they can now use classroom time for high payoff activities such as Q & A, practice sessions and structured group interactions with participants who have acquired the foundation knowledge, skills and strategies to truly benefit.

Companies can save a fortune when WBT is balanced with the right support mechanisms such as access to experts and peers. Much of this can also happen over the Internet using:

  • facilitated chat rooms
  • monitored bulletin board style forums
  • live instructor interactions with Web-casting
  • Social media


  • travel costs are lower or eliminated - travel, hotel, meals
  • time based facilitator fees are lower or eliminated
  • knowledge development is documented with end of module tests so you know your money is being invested where you intended it to be.
