At Legacy Business Cultures, we frequently receive calls inquiring about online learning options we have available for our workshops. While we do deliver elements of our courses online, we believe that there is no substitute for the kind of learning experiences that can only be achieved in the classroom.
The following are reactions from Sindy Warren, principal of Warren & Associates LLC and an Associate Partner of Legacy Business Cultures, and Paul Meshanko, President & CEO of Legacy Business Cultures, when asked about their opinions on the benefits of classroom vs. online learning for the courses they facilitate.
Sindy Warren states the following about why she feels live training is more effective:
Paul Meshanko states the following regarding his opinions about online vs. live classroom teaching for soft-skills development:
Our approach at Legacy Business Cultures is to offer exceptional classroom training that allow our participants to experience learning in ways that can only be offered through live in-person interactions with our facilitators as well as other participants. However, we also utilize online courses as supplemental resources in order to help reinforce our training outside of the classroom. This blended learning approach has proven to be more effective than limiting our clients to one training method or another. We value highly the experiences and collaboration that can only be achieved in a live classroom and also see the tremendous benefit that online learning serves to help reinforce our training after the classroom experience is over.
