What is the HRD Corp Computer Based Training (CBT) programme?
This programme enables employers to purchase learning management systems, and develop courses to retrain and upskill their workforce.
It is perfect for employers who can’t afford to release their employees to attend outside training. If you don’t have the resources but still need your staff to keep up with industry trends, this programme is ideal. It allows employers to provide an alternative to training onsite.

Computer Based Training and How It’s Changing the Way We Learn
Introduction – What is Computer Based Training?
Computer based training is a type of online training that uses a computer to deliver instructional content to learners.
It can be delivered in many different ways, but the most common delivery method is through a web browser. The learner completes the course on their own time, at their own pace and in any location with an internet connection.
Computer based training courses are often interactive and engaging, which makes them appealing to learners who might otherwise not have been interested in learning about the topic. It has also been shown to be more effective for retaining information than traditional classroom methods.
Some disadvantages of computer based training are that it does not provide learners with human interaction or feedback which can make it feel less personal and less motivating for some people.
The Evolution of CBT and the Future of Learning
Computer-based training (CBT) has evolved significantly over the years in response to the changing needs of learners. CBT is a type of learning that uses computers and other digital technologies to deliver educational content, often in the form of online courses or interactive modules. It has become a popular method of training in many industries, as it allows learners to access information and complete coursework on their own time and at their own pace.
The evolution of CBT has been driven by the need to accommodate a wide range of learning styles. It is important that we are able to cater to all learners because not all people learn in the same way. Some learners may be more visual, while others may be more auditory or kinesthetic. CBT has evolved to include a variety of different learning aids that cater to different learning styles.
One of the key ways that CBT has evolved is through the use of multimedia elements such as videos, pictures, and animations. These elements provide visual learning aids that can help learners understand complex concepts and retain information more easily. For example, a video showing a step-by-step process for completing a task can be much more effective than a written instruction manual.
Another way that CBT has evolved is through the use of sound effects and music. These elements can create an immersive learning environment that helps learners engage with the material more deeply. For example, a course on customer service might include background music that simulates the noise of a busy restaurant, helping learners develop their listening skills in a realistic setting.
CBT has also evolved to include games and other interactive elements that make learning fun and engaging. These elements can help learners develop their skills in a way that is enjoyable and rewarding. For example, a course on math might include a game that rewards learners for correctly solving equations, encouraging them to keep practicing and improving.
Overall, the evolution of CBT has been driven by the need to cater to different learning styles and provide engaging and effective learning experiences. As technology continues to advance, CBT will likely evolve even further, incorporating new technologies and techniques to provide even better learning opportunities. In the future, we can expect to see even more immersive and interactive learning experiences that make it easier and more enjoyable for learners to develop the skills they need.
How does HRD Corp help employers get going with CBT?
Employers can get started with CBT by selecting a CBT software platform that meets their needs. There are many different options available, so it is important for employers to research and compare the features and capabilities of each platform before making a decision.
Once a CBT platform has been selected, employers can begin creating and uploading training content. This may include videos, presentations, interactive modules, quizzes, and other materials. The CBT platform should provide tools and guidance to help employers create and organize their training content in a way that is effective and engaging for learners.
Once the training content has been uploaded, employers can begin inviting employees to access and complete the training. The CBT platform should provide tools to manage and track employee progress, including assessments and quizzes to evaluate their understanding of the material.
CBT vs. Instructor Led Training – Which is Best?
Computer-based training (CBT) is an effective method of training employees on a wide range of topics. It is flexible and can be accessed at any time, making it ideal for employees who are on the go or have busy schedules. CBT is also self-paced, allowing learners to progress at their own speed and review material as needed.
CBT has also evolved to include a variety of multimedia elements, such as videos, pictures, and animations, which provide visual learning aids and help learners understand complex concepts. Additionally, CBT often includes sound effects and music to create an immersive learning environment.

Cost Comparison Between CBT and Instructor Led Training
The cost of CBT and instructor-led training can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the length and complexity of the training, the number of learners, and the specific tools and technologies used.
In general, CBT can be a more cost-effective option compared to instructor-led training. Because CBT is self-paced and can be accessed at any time, it can be completed by a larger number of learners without the need for additional instructors or trainers. This can help reduce the overall cost of training.
CBT also typically requires less infrastructure and equipment compared to instructor-led training. CBT can be accessed using a computer or other device with an internet connection, making it possible to provide training to employees who are located remotely or in different parts of the world. This can reduce the need for costly training facilities and equipment.
However, the cost of CBT can vary depending on the specific platform and tools used. Some CBT platforms may require a subscription fee, while others may be available for free or on a pay-per-use basis. Additionally, some CBT platforms may require the purchase of additional tools or licenses to access certain features or functionality.
In contrast, instructor-led training typically involves a higher upfront cost, as it requires the hiring of instructors or trainers and the use of dedicated training facilities and equipment. However, instructor-led training can provide a more personalised and interactive learning experience, which may be worth the additional cost for some organisations.
