In Class Training Verse Online Training
Online training allowed me to work where and when I wanted. This can be perceived as a good thing or a bad thing. If a student is disciplined enough not to get distracted by working at home or in a coffee shop than I would suggest online training. However, I found myself leaving my computer and doing chores around the house. With online training there is no one to be accountable to. There also isn’t a chance for a discussion of what you have learned or to ask questions. There is no human interaction. Although online training has many benefits, I don’t believe it is the best way for me as an individual to learn.
In class training also has downsides and benefits as well. For the in class training I had to battle traffic and bad parking. I also have a long commute to get to class. Lastly I went to the wrong classroom and ended up being late to class. Due to these issues, I missed the first part of class and a valuable learning opportunity. However, I was able to catch up due to my peers and teachers help. With in-class training I can ask questions and talk to my peers.
I preferred in-class training verse online training. In-class training allowed me to learn better. When deciding between in-class training and online training I think it’s important to know yourself. Each person is an individual and will learn differently.
