Computer training is said to be popular to computer-related studies that’s why it is also used to teach almost any conceivable computer subject. Any course of instruction whose primary means of delivery is via a computer is what they called as computer training
or computer-based training (CBT). It may be delivered via a software product installed on a single computer, through a corporate or educational intranet, or over the Internet as Web-based training. With online computer training, it seems to teach people how to run a particular computer application, such as Microsoft Excel, or to learn a computer programming language, such as Visual Basic that is why many often take this as an advantage.
Trainee’s control over the content, sequence and pace of training is how they define learner control. It is where trainees can choose their own pace for learning progress. Accordingly, it might be possible for trainees to control sequence of instructional material, the content of instruction and the amount of instruction during training. Having a greater control over their learning experience, is what trainees would benefit. Doing training online might be more comfortable and less shy since they might not have to admit that they might not understand something or feel embarrassed about their pace or their performance. However, one of the downside of an online computer training, and this might definitely rise to a problem is that it might be difficult to engage in a computer-based training if the employee does not have access to a computer.
