When we think of learning, many, in fact, almost all of us think of sitting in a classroom and having a trainer or teacher impart the lesson content. Face to face learning has been our reality, but now, things are changing. Not to mention, they may have already changed. School children are waking up in the morning and logging into their Google Classrooms, university students are signing up for their e-Books, and organisational employees are signing into Zoom meetings and training sessions. In alignment with these, a typical face to face train the trainer program has now been converted into a virtual program that can be completed from the comfort of one’s home. Interestingly, almost 67% of the organisations have shifted to virtual organisational training, and 82% of the organisations plan to develop more digital learning material in the upcoming years. Nevertheless, many of us are still unwilling to permanently embrace virtual training as a face to face program is still perceived to carry an additional human touch, social interaction, and a general ambience that augments the learning experience. That said, virtual training has also been evolving and improving, and has been soaking up new advantages that a face to face train the trainer program perhaps cannot deliver. Let us take a look at some of the reasons why virtual training is better than face to face training:
It is worth noting that virtual training and face to face training are not on competing terms. Each has their own sets of benefits and drawbacks. For instance, a face to face session provides the room for collaborations and discussions that subsequently escalates the exchange of ideas. Similarly, the idea of belonging to a learning space and witnessing a human touch tends to make face to face learning more effective in certain aspects. Despite these, organisations are certainly making the move to virtual training as we become more particular about saving time, saving the planet, and most importantly, get accustomed to the work from home culture that has been induced by the pandemic.
