Online learning classes allow employees, regardless of their location, to participate in training opportunities through computers or devices with an internet connection.
These classes are perfect for groups that have employees in multiple locations, do not have access to classrooms, or who cannot bring everyone together in the same place at the same time. Classes may be totally online or part of a blended approach. In blended courses, some of the class is held in a classroom and some takes place online.
