The Difference Between ILT, VILT, and Online Learning

by | Jan 18, 2022 | General, Learning and Development | 0 comments

There’s three different ways to train someone. I discuss the differences between them.

Instructor-Led Training (ILT)

  • An instructor is teaching you something
  • You have to be there in real-time
  • The instructor must keep learners’ attention for awhile (usually an hour or more)
  • Instructor has to think about what to bring and where to set up tech equipment
  • Have to work around schedules
  • Learner can ask questions and get fast response

 

Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT)

  • Instructor and learners are on their own computers
  • Learning takes place in real-time
  • Can record session for learners that missed the training
  • Have to work around schedules
  • Interaction is a tad challenging if learners aren’t tech savy
  • Learner can ask questions and get fast response

 

Online Learning

  • No instructor teaching in real-time
  • Learner can walk through course on his/her own
  • Learner’s questions may take a couple days to get a response
  • If course is a podcast, learner can listen to it while walking, in the car, on a train, etc.
  • Works around the learner’s schedule

 

What other pros and cons can you think of that I haven’t stated here?
