What is web-based training?

 • Web-based training (WBT) is e-learning that

           platforms
       –   Presents content in a structured way to allow self-directed, self-
           paced learning
       –   Includes meaningful interactivity to enhance learning, such as
            • Learning checks and quizzes
            • Simulations
       –   Can include rich media to further enhance the learning experience
            • Audio
            • Video
       –   Uses HTML and JavaScript as the primary authoring tools
