Classroom Vs Instructor-led online training

All of us are very comfortable with class room training and rightly so. Nothing can beat classroom training. But with our busy schedule, traffic/travelling time and weekend family commitments makes it very difficult to attend regular classroom training, thereby constraining our growth and upskilling opportunities.

Instructor-led online training is a viable alternative to classroom training with great technology support and built-in interactivity. A brief comparison is shown below:

Clasroom vs Online Training

Standardized and consistent Training experience

Techcanvass uses standardized courseware and teaching aids, which includes courseware, presentations, projects, examples & assignments. All of these are developed by experts and are made available to the trainers as well as the students.

So, even though trainers bring in their individuality, the consistency of courseware and content ensures that every trainer delivers the same high-quality content/learning experience to every student.

Nobody is perfect but we do believe that with regular feedbacks from the students and using that to improve our content and approach to the teaching, we are becoming better.
