When training is required, Karen Frankola (2002) writes that how the training is delivered is as important as the content. Converting classroom training to online training can save businesses a lot of money. IBM claims that $400,000 dollars are saved for every 1,000 classroom days converted to the Internet (Frankola, ¶ 4). E-learning consultant Jim Hollahan warns about making every course distance-based--it isn't for every learner or every topic. Often blended learning proves to be the best solution. Putting readings, case studies and assessments online prior to classroom training can create a more powerful and interactive learning environment.
The article goes on to remind readers that it is vital to ensure training is aligned to business objectives. If the training doesn't support, enhance or contribute to the business' objectives don't make it online--the time and money aren't worth it. If the training isn't aligned with business goals, it should be removed from the training schedule all together.
