While the term might make you think of the IT training industry and skills such as computer programming, data analysis and software development, technical training also encompasses the teaching of basic business skills such as sales, business writing, customer service, math and project management.
Technology Base Training is a computer-based training methodology that includes web-based, intranet-based, DVD- and CD-based training on any topic.Technology-based training uses computer-based tools to enhance the training process, typically by involving trainees actively rather than passively. For survey research, technology-based training is usually used to build and sharpen interviewer skills, particularly skills required for successfully interacting with survey respondents. Traditionally, interaction-skills training relied on peer-to-peer role playing or passive learning through videos. Technology-based training, in contrast, facilitates self-directed learning with rich media sources and abundant learner-assessment and remediation options.
Learning Objective are course materials delivered in small bites by breaking large blocks of content into modules, which allow learners to:
- search and complete finite units in a short amount of time,
- gain competency quickly,
- brush up on a skill once they’re back on the job, and
- quickly scan a course module list and find the lesson they need without wading through pages of unnecessary content.
Technical Training teaches the skills needed to design, develop, implement, maintain, support or operate a particular technology or related application, product or service. Related Content: Meeting the Needs of the Modern Technical Workforce Using Blended Learning.
