The most common eLearning delivery techniques are computer-based training (CBT) and web-based training (WBT). CBT is a kind of education in which students complete computer-based training courses. CBT courses are often packaged on CD or DVD for asynchronous delivery. WBT courses, on the other hand, are delivered synchronously and asynchronously through the internet.
WBT’s strongest feature is also one of its most significant drawbacks. High-speed internet is not available in every country. CBT programs may be more convenient for those living in Third World nations. It is quicker to install software via 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 won’t need to carry their own PCs with them. WBT content is accessible from any location, including cellphones, desktops, and tablets. WBT is especially important since it allows learners from various regions to exchange their opinions and expertise about a course subject. Some skills, like as learning a new language, will be more successful if the learner can connect with other students via chat rooms or discussion boards.
