Among the most prominent eLearning delivery techniques are computer-based training (CBT) and web-based training (WBT). CBT is a kind of education in which students attend computer-based training courses. CBT courses are usually delivered on a CD or DVD and are designed for asynchronous delivery. WBT courses, on the other hand, are delivered via the internet in both synchronous and asynchronous modes.
The finest feature of WBT is also one of its drawbacks. Not every country has access to high-speed internet. CBT programs may be more convenient for people from Third World nations. It is quicker to install software from a CDROM than to wait for a WBT application or page to load.
People with occupations that need them to travel to other locations, on the other hand, will find WBT more beneficial and handy since they will not need to carry their own PCs with them. WBT material is accessible from anywhere, including personal portable devices such as cellphones, computers, and tablets. WBT is particularly beneficial since learners from many regions may exchange their opinions and information about a course subject. Some abilities, such as learning a new language, will be more successful if the student can connect with other learners via chat rooms or discussion boards.
