WHY ONLINE TRAINING

There is a shift towards a more interactive, collaborative approach in online training where the instructor’s role is changed to … “the guide on the side.” Online distance learning meets the needs of an ever-growing population of students who cannot or prefer not to participate in traditional classroom settings.

These learners include those unable to attend traditional classes, who cannot find a particular class at their chosen institution, who live in remote locations, who work full-time and can only study at or after work, and those who simply prefer to learn independently.

The minimum requirement for students to participate in an online course is access to a computer, the internet, and the motivation to succeed in a non-traditional classroom.

Online courses provide an excellent method of course delivery unbound by time or location allowing for accessibility to instruction at anytime from anywhere. 

Learners find the online environment a convenient way to fit education into their busy lives. The ability to access a course from any computer with Internet access, 24 hours a day, seven days a week is a tremendous incentive for many of today’s students.

IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT: 

• Increased responsibility for learning belongs to the student. 

• Motivation for learning comes from successful completion of your Q & A and other assignments.
