Need Suggestions for Providing Asynchronous Group Training
I'm curious about whether anyone else is running into the issue of group training online using asynchronous courses. Let me explain.
I develop online training for my company's clients, who are all in the automotive industry and don't spend their days at a computer. There's a lot of mandatory training they have to complete and we offer it asynchronously. However, because of the nature of the industry, it's tough for our clients' employees to sit down individually and complete their training. Our clients want to be able to offer the online training to groups of their employees at a time. That way it's still trackable and the course delivery is consistent (versus when offered as an instructor-led course).
However, as you can imagine, using the courses as they're currently developed doesn't work very well because they're designed for individual interaction (following best practices). I cringe at the thought of developing "plug and play" training just so it can be shown to a group. Has anyone else faced this challenge? If so, how did you handle it? I'd love to hear suggestions about how to provide some sort of group training online without sacrificing the best practices of individual online training.
