I feel online training works well if the tools used are interactive and easy to use. Online training and education does work if done right. Using tools such as live sessions, group chatting, and integrated file uploads make it seamless and convenient to learn or train online. Sites such as www.edufire.com
, and www.sclipo.com
These sites offer some great tools to make training online work. Some are innovating with great features such as a video and powerpoint mashup tool or flexible platforms to customize courses and training from Udemy, a brand new site just launched. Check it out.
