asynchronously or not in real time or a combination of both. Besides these, there are many

technologies and combinations of technologies that can also serve to deliver WBT courses.

respond and use logic to tackle the course on this learning mode. They feel in greater control

and assume more responsibility. This learner-centred approach is more productive than logging in

a certain number of hours while training.
