Simulations (cont.)

Advantages

 Eliminates the need to travel to a

central training location.

 Meaningful—gets trainees

involved in learning, and are

emotionally engaging.

 Simulators provide a consistent

message of what needs to be

learned.

 Can safely put employees in

situations that would be

dangerous in the real world.

 Results in positive outcomes as

shorter training times and

increased ROI.



Disadvantages

 High development costs.

 Trainees may not be comfortable

in learning situations that lack

human contact.

with a threedimensional learning

experience allowing

them to experience

presence.



Disadvantages



 Allows trainees to

Simulations (cont.)

Advantages

Virtual worldscomputer-based,

simulated, three

dimensional

representation of

the real world

and a place to

host learning

programs or

experiences.



 Imitates an actual workplace

without any harm.

 Provides a place to meet with

trainers, managers, or other

employees who can serve as

teachers.

 Useful for teaching

interpersonal skills.

 Motivates learners by making

learning fun and interactive.

 Enhances transfer of training.

 Used for e-learning,

collaboration, and meetings.



Disadvantages

 Lack of ease of use for

first-time users.

 Potential risk of a

difficult keyboard and

mouse interface.

 High investment of

time and money

required for

programming content.

 Lack of evidence

supporting its

effectiveness for

learning.

Mobile Technology and Training

Methods: iPods, PDAs

 Mobile technology consists of:

Wireless transmission systems (Wi-Fi and

Bluetooth)

Mobile devices (PDAs, GPS, RFID, etc.)

Software applications

Challenges:

Ensuring employees know when and how to take

advantage of the technology.

Ensuring employees can connect to a variety of

networks irrespective of their location or mobile

device.

Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS)

 They are instructional systems that use

artificial intelligence.

 Three types of ITS environments:

Tutoring

Coaching

Empowering

Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS)

(cont.)

 Different from other new training

technologies in several ways:

Has the ability to match instruction to

individual student needs.

Can communicate and respond to the student.

Can model the trainee’s learning process.

Can decide, on the basis of a trainee’s

previous performance, what information to

provide.

Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS)

(cont.)

 Different from other new training

technologies in several ways:

Can make decisions about the trainee’s level

of understanding.

Can complete a self-assessment resulting in a

modification of its teaching process.

Distance Learning

 It involves two types of technology:

Teleconferencing - synchronous exchange of

audio, video, and/or text between two or more

individuals or groups at two or more locations.

Interactive distance learning (IDL) - latest

generation of distance learning, which uses

satellite technology to broadcast programs to

different locations and allows trainees to

respond to questions posed during the training

program using a keypad.
