I recently exchanged emails with a student who said that her boss prefers classroom training to online training. The reason was that there are too many distractions in the workplace to effectively participate in online training.
Uh, wait a second here.
If the boss is OK with allowing an employee to leave the office to go to a classroom for training, why couldn’t the employee be allowed to take the online class from home or a public library?
That would produce exactly the same effect as classroom training with even more benefits (learning at the best pace for the student, the morale boost employees get when trusted to work from home for a day, etc.). Just because training is online doesn’t mean that you have to do it from your desk during the workday!
