The first phase of digital technology for education and training simply involved putting courseware into electronic format — first on CD ROM, and eventually online. Soon, various other strategies developed for supplementing online courses, manuals and textbooks with the ability to communicate with instructors through email and forums.
This led to development of real-time, live online training solutions with the power of a synchronous event — where geographically dispersed participants could share knowledge and a classroom experience from their own desks, cubicles or another remote location.
While conventional Web conferencing tools can support e-learning, organizations have discovered that the needs of organizational learning are very specific: To interact strategically in a way that will foster interactivity, build skills and add value.
An online training platform needs to address this particular set of needs with a suite of tools designed to enhance the ability of educators to simulate an actual classroom. Supporting features include: Content development, a library for storage, annotation and chat tools and pre- and post-class preparation with detailed reporting.
Objective: This white paper will provide a comprehensive overview of the needs of live online training and how they can be effectively addressed by a specific set of features and tools within an online solution.
