How much time do you have? This is our response when somebody asks us what the benefits of online training are. Because when it comes to eLearning, the long list of training advantages could take at least an hour to explain.Yet, so many people still think online training is cold, faceless and automated. And the idea of training without an authentic human element, a real person-to-person connection, is too much to bear. But we know something they don’t: online training can go hand-in-hand with an Instructor-Led Training course.At this point, you might be wondering what an ‘instructor-led meets eLearning’ training program actually looks like. Well, this kind of blended training comes in different forms. Mostly, it’s about the tools and environment that you choose to use when introducing an instructor into your online training program.Today, the most common approaches are traditional classroom ILT training and Virtual Instructor-Led Training. We’ll look at each of these next.

Article | May 27, 2020

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with math, leaning heavily towards the latter. It was always something I was good at, but didn’t enjoy. Quite frankly, it still stuns me on a regular basis that I’ve ended up working for a math company. Let me try to parse this out by saying that math has been intrinsically tied to every definitive choice I’ve made, consciously or unconsciously. Flash backwards—I’m 4. My mom is teaching me long division, insisting that this is absolutely crucial for how I map the rest of my life. I assume this is how the rest of my peers spend their time, completely oblivious to the fact that other neighborhood children are outside, running around on playgrounds, doing cartwheels up and down their sunlit front yards.
