Types of Training Solutions We Offer
Envision offers various custom training solutions depending on
your training needs. Each has advantages and disadvantages, so
let's take a closer look at them and consider how to determine
which will be the best fit for you.
Custom training solutions fall into three general categories,
based on how the training is delivered. They are:
- Web or Computer-based E-learning
- Live, Instructor-led Training
- Virtual Classroom
Often a blended approach is used, with some parts of the training
solution delivered in one way and others in another. It all depends
on what is best for the situation.
Envision also specializes in training for software applications
which can be delivered in any of the above ways.
What is Customized Computer/Web-based E-learning?
Customized Computer / Web-based e-learning is the creation of
learning content intended for delivery on demand to participants
regardless of time or location, at a pace driven by the participants
Computer or Web-based e-learning is often utilized when self-paced
learning is appropriate, when there is a need to train large numbers
of people or people who are geographically dispersed, or when the
expertise to deliver instructor-led training is not available everywhere
it is needed.
What is Customized, Instructor-led Training
Customized, Instructor-led Training is the creation of learning
content intended for delivery in a traditional classroom setting
with an instructor guiding a group of participants. Despite the
growth of e-learning, instructor-led training is still the most
popular type of training.
What is Customized Virtual Classroom Training?
Customized Virtual Classroom Training is the creation of learning
content intended for delivery in a virtual classroom over the Web
(e.g., a Webinar). This online learning environment tries as much
as possible to copy what goes on in a classroom, even though it
is delivered over the Web.
The participants are not together physically in one place, but
they are all online at the same time and gain the benefit of the
virtual presence of the instructor as well as the other participants.
What is Customized Software Application Training?
Customized Software Application Training is the creation of learning
content specifically intended to train users on a software application.
Such training can be delivered as an e-learning solution, as instructor-led,
in a virtual classroom, or via some blend of all these approaches,
which often works best. There are many ways to approach training
for software applications based upon the importance of the software
to the organization, its complexity, and your willingness to invest
in interactivity. Please visit the Training
Solutions for Software Applications section of our Web site
for additional information.
Now let's see how to go about choosing
the best type of training solution.
