Synopsis

Today's trainers must know about WBT (Web-based training) if they want to keep up in their industry. With Creating Web-Based Training, they don't have to be programmers to create and use WBT. Step-by-step instructions show readers how to create simple yet effective WBT projects without hiring a multimedia development team. Clearly written with a minimum of jargon, the book explains it all:
- Web design basics
- where to get easy-to-use Web-authoring software and how to use it; authoring text; adding color, images, links, navigation, audio, video, and embedded programming; and posting WBT pages on the Web or an intranet.
- Training
- designing WBT for specific training objectives; using interactivity effectively; choosing and producing media; and estimating cost factors. The book includes a CD with WBT samples and templates, which make it easy for trainers and educators to get started - on the Web!" "

Excerpt

The authors wrote this book on the premise that there is no better learning environment for most topics and situations than a classroom. Face-to-face interaction with an instructor and peers enables a student to get answers to questions and immediate feedback for a rich understanding. Alas, it is not a perfect world. Other methods of instruction have been tried, many successfully, of which Web-based training (WBT) is the latest. So, the question is not whether wbt is better than classroom teaching or whether it will replace instructors. the question is, Where, when, and for what types of training is wbt effective? This book provides information that will be helpful to you in answering this question. However, you are the one who will have to make the decision—do you use wbt and how?—based on a whole range of considerations specific to your particular situation.
