Can Virtual Training Labs Be a Better Alternative for IT Training?

Today’s globally competitive world means that organizations need to digitalize every aspect of their business. According to a recent article in the Harvard Business Review, Great Businesses Scale Their Learning, “In a world that is more rapidly changing and where our needs are evolving at an accelerating rate, the institutions that are most likely to thrive will be those that provide an opportunity to learn faster together.”

While many IT Training Managers understand that cloud based training makes sense because it allows cost-effective, scalable training of learners around the world, some are still hesitant to go forward because they are afraid of losing the frontal in-person teaching experience.

This perception is one reason why we partnered with Training Industry to query research of IT training users first-hand about their opinion on the effectiveness of virtual training labs and how they believe this cloud based training mode stacks up when compared to classroom training.

We invite you to join us as we share the results of this exclusive research for the first time during a webinar with Training Industry on Wednesday, June 21.

CloudShare customers rave about their ability to satisfy partner and customer requests for training at a moment’s notice – even if their subject matter trainer is in Europe and their learners are in Asia. They also save all the hassle and costs of arranging flights, hotels, and physical classrooms. In addition, they can easily provide real-world scenarios and environments for effective learning, regardless of how complex the software or network requirements and are able to communicate with learners and help when needed. While you might say of course your customers would say good things such to be objective sources, the new research that will be presented is based on an unbiased anonymous survey of IT training users sourced via Training Industry Magazine who were not aware that we commissioned the project.

See you there!
