Also known as computer-based training (CBT), distance learning, or e-learning, online training is a form of instruction that takes place completely on the internet. It involves a variety of multimedia elements, including graphics, audio, video, and web-links, which all can be accessed through one’s internet browser. These elements are used in lieu of traditional classroom components.
In addition to presenting course material and content, online training gives students the opportunity for live interactions and real-time feedback for such things as quizzes and tests. Interactions between instructor and students are scheduled and also conducted via an online medium, through such methods as chat, e-mail, or other web-based communication.
To use online training, students should have a basic knowledge of computers. This should include, but is not limited to, the ability to use a mouse, which involves knowing the difference between left-click and right-click; the ability to open and close documents and web pages; and the ability to navigate a website and web pages. Those with no computer experience at all, may have trouble using our online training and, for their own benefit, may want to enroll in a basic computer training class before using any of our online courses.
