Assessing the effectiveness of computer-based training


Modern technology has made possible the use of distance learning on a large scale, by means of remote terminals linked by telecommunication land lines to a central computer system. Barclays Bank in GB has been developing such a system for the last four years for several of its internal training courses. With a staff of nearly 50 people spread across 3 locations, such a system has tremendous potential. The benefits to the bank, over the tradition- al 'training course', are readily apparent: each student receives the same message, less time is spent away from the place of work, fewer training personnel, reduced cost of travel and accommodation.
