The negatives of virtual training
While virtual training has its advantages, there are also disadvantages. If you overlook these concerns, they can eventually take a toll on your business.
- Because virtual training is online, there’s always room for glitches in security, network, and bandwidth malfunctions. You have to just be prepared for the occasional hold-up
- Some learners may need basic technical training before they can arrange access to the platform apps used
- Some may need support for an internet connection or a new and heavy-duty laptop, or computer
Even though these access issues may be stating the extremes, they need to be considered, as they can block involvement or add frustration for some staff, which defeats the purpose of training.
