Photo of Distance Learning / Online Career Training CoursesWhile traditional training approaches work for many, effective online training requires a new teaching philosophy, which needs to:

- Use technology as much as possible
- Show students the big picture
- Package learning into bite size chunks or modules
- Use games and gaming principles (after all they've grown up on games)
- Be dynamic - use varied and blended methods (discussions, teams, case studies, projects, papers, texts, the internet...)
- Provide opportunities for creativity and allow for strategic thought
- Demonstrate expertise that earns respect ("just because you're the teacher doesn't mean I can't get a better answer on the internet")
- Provide continuous feedback (24/7 not 3 hours a week)
- Create time for debate (facilitate teamwork & discussion rather than spoonfeed)
- Define expectations clearly and
- Align individual goals with the success of the organization.
