Experience has shown that instructor-led trainings have some advantages that cannot easily be overcome by technology enhanced learning. Direct interaction with an instructor and among the group is often perceived as motivating and more personal. For small groups, in-class trainings can be more cost effective. On-line learning often requires a considerable amount of self-management and progress-monitoring from the learners. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are very sensitive to these issues…
