What Benefits Does Online Training Offer?

Online training can offer numerous benefits in code of conduct training, including providing greater consistency in training delivery versus ILT or webinar training, where the quality of training depends on the instructor. The quality and consistency also may vary widely if numerous instructors are used.

Online training also allows learners to complete the training on their schedule. And it can easily include exercises and quizzes that help the organization learn about the learner’s experience and ensure they attain a certain learning sufficiency before completing the training.

And importantly, online training can easily include rich media elements, like scenario videos and exercises that best engage the learner.
