Which is better – online courses or being in the classroom?
Based on student feedback, online courses are a better way to learn the information. Video instruction and be re-played as many times as needed. Regular quiz segments ensure that students are learning and retaining the information. Students are able to work at their own pace – 8 hours of in-person training often leaves students with their heads spinning with too much information while the online courses allow students to take in the information at whatever paces suits their learning abilities. When taking online courses, students still have access to instructors for one-on-one question and answer sessions if they are having difficulty with any of the course subject matter.
