3 Benefits of Face-to-face Training

Over the past few years, e-learning has begun to rule the world of education even to the extent of replacing traditional classrooms. However, advocates of conventional teaching methods agree that a classroom is always better. So, before you book training room rental or classroom rental, you may want to know which one would be a better option for your training needs.

1. Cost-effective
Despite hundreds of voices claiming e-learning as more cost-effective than classroom learning, often the opposite is true. Nowadays, it is possible to rent a training room according to your requirements at reasonable prices. Also, most e-learning platforms ask for paid subscriptions for viewing the lectures after a few videos. The price of a good Internet connection and laptop is often overlooked. Also, another critical thing to keep in mind is the sedentary lifestyle that e-learning promotes.

2. Human interaction
While this may seem to be overrated, it is one of the most significant disadvantages of learning online. A fundamental element of practical life is effectively communicating with others. If you are a very learned doctor, psychologist, engineer, businessman, scientists but lack the tools of good communication with others, then there is no use of that education. Sitting in front of a computer and watching videos of even the best lecturers is useless without learning the tactics of interacting effectively with others.

3. Discussion
Discussing points with your peers or colleagues always has a plus point. You get to hear a variety of different perspectives and get to think over their pros and cons. You can have a debate with the instructor if you disagree over something that’s being taught. With an online e-learning video, you can just send a message to the instructor and wait for a reply. E-learning advocates claims that you can replay a lecture when you don’t understand something. This may seem like a significant advantage, but traditional classrooms cater to this as well, as you can ask ‘live’ questions during the lecture and note down important points.
