Advantages And Disadvantages Of Virtual Classroom
Disadvantages of online self-study training are: it requires self-discipline from students; it is impersonal, and some students need personal interaction with their instructors in order to learn; constructive feedback can be limited; and too much time on a computer can be harmful and cause poor vision, strains and other physical issues (Noe, 2016).
Online self-study training is that it is not suitable for complex jobs that require hands-on experience like installing or fixing equipment. This training method is not appropriate when complex analytical, conceptual, or interpersonal skills need to be taught. Online training is appropriate when employees’ jobs require them to learn a standard set of facts or procedures (Noe, 2016). Activists dislike reading, writing and thinking alone and would not do well in an online training setting that requires a lot of self-discipline. They work well with others and need to be in a group setting. Independent learners will find online training suited to their needs. Visual/Verbal learners like to study alone in a quiet setting. They visualize information in order to remember it. Online self-study training is appropriate for these learners because most of the information presented is in writing
