Training – the internet changes everything

 With the Internet becoming increasingly more powerful, a growing number of corporate employers are turning to the web for employee training. Through customized online learning courses, members can now transcend the four walls of a traditional classroom and learn at any time and any place, effectively redefining the landscape of education. Here we explore the growth of web-based training in the workplace.

Training on computers is something that many companies have been doing for a long time. There have been very successful companies built from software- and video-based training methods that enhanced the traditional classroom model and opened up opportunities for off-location training.

Today and into the near future, the Internet appears to be the clear choice for all or part of major corporate training programs. It’s easier to deliver, less expensive to maintain and update, and allows for interactivity and course re-direction that other methods have never enjoyed. It is projected to become a $110 billion per year industry within 5 years.

This infographic from our friends at Mindflash clearly portrays where we are and where we’re going in the online training world.
