Implementing Complex Web-Based Training Strategies with Virtual Classrooms.
Helic, Denis; Maurer, Hermann; Scerbakov, Nick
Current training strategies implemented in online Web-based training (WBT) sessions are rather simple strategies. They lack a number of typical classroom training strategies, such as: composite training strategies, the possibility to customize and adapt training strategy, and collaborative training strategies. This paper presents a novel WBT tool called Virtual Classrooms, which was implemented to support such aspects. The intention was to mirror at least a small part of the typical classroom experience into online training sessions in a WBT environment. Virtual Classrooms are implemented as part of the modern WBT system called WBT-Master. (Contains 14 references.) (Author)
