The advantages of online training over classroom training are:

·       Time saving - you save a lot of time which otherwise gets wasted in travel. Less hassle.
·       Flexibility - the online schedule is flexible and can be tuned as per your college or office timings. In-person training is normally fixed and less flexible.
·       Recordings - online classes can be recorded easily and the session recordings can then be viewed again and again, life-long. The in-person training can’t be recorded easily.
·       Less cost - online classes involve considerably less cost due to saving of time & money spent in travel, rent of physical classrooms, other infrastructure or set-up costs, and so on.
·       Sharing of assets - it’s easy for the tutor to share notes, material, assignments in an online class.
·       Visibility & understanding - normally a physical class involves a whiteboard and students sitting at the back might not be able to see or understand what the tutor is writing or saying. In an online class, the tutor’s screen is visible on your laptop and hence it’s same for all students and easily understandable. Also, the voice of the tutor is much clearer in an online class as your laptop’s headphone is used to listen.
·       Group Chat - In an online class any student can ask questions or write her/his views in the common chat forum provided by the live meeting software. This is not possible in a physical class.
