Going Virtual With Online Training During Challenging Economic Times

Tuesday, April 3, 2012 12:00pm - 1:00pm EDT  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Jeffrey Rohrlick

Federal government employees are challenged to increasingly skip the classroom to receive training. Despite the current travel and budgets cuts Federal agencies need to train a growing younger generation workforce and pass on institutional knowledge from the large percentage of retiring Federal employees effectively.

  • More flexibility and convenience - Online courses also expand the flexibility for remote workers/executives to study when it’s most convenient, use tools they’re already using and train just enough when they need it.
  • Better, richer communication and community building between learners and instructor as well as among learners - Through wikis, message boards, and other synchronous and asynchronous discussions, participants not only share knowledge but get to know one another.
  • More engagement opportunities including rich media, social media connections
  • Online resources provide continuous learning opportunities via connections with experts and sources – Q&A and learning community continues after the learning event.
