|Techniques used to carry out training and development, such as training courses, job aids, coaching, and mentoring.
There are learning methodologies that are computer based (on-line learning) and that can be presented as follows :
- Synchronous learning: Real-time, instructor-led, online learning in which all participants are logged on at the same time and communicate directly with each other and the instructor through the computer.
- Asynchronous learning: This is a partially self-paced learning model where learners access programs on-line at different times. This type may have the participation of an instructor or facilitation via bulletin boards and/or chat rooms or email.
- Self-paced learning: The learner studies material on-line and does not interact with the instructor.
