Organizations are spreading their presence across countries and continents. This means, organizations will not only have to deal with culturally diverse and globally dispersed customers, but also with employees. While organizational training is important for all employees, it can be practically impossible to get all the employees under one roof. Even if you make it possible, you need heavy investment of both time and money, which might possibly exceed your training budget. Appointing trainers for each location can be a solution, but the sessions will not be consistent at all locations, and the cost of trainer will substantially increase for the same service. In such situations, computer-based online training or e-learning can be a viable solution.
Computer-Based Training or CBT, is in simple terms the use of computers to impart training. The ubiquity of computers and the need to train employees in quick time has led to the increased adoption of CBT in organizations world-wide.
E-learning is a specific type of CBT that is used for teaching or training employees. E-learning uses network technology to deliver CBT to employees spread across diverse locations.
