Web-Based Training (WBT)

Web-based training (WBT) is a form of online learning that is delivered through the internet. It is also known as e-learning or online learning. WBT allows learners to access training materials from anywhere, at any time, as long as they have an internet connection. This makes it a flexible and convenient way to learn, especially for those who cannot attend traditional classroom-based training.

As an e-learning designer, I specialize in using the industry-leading software Articulate Storyline 360 to create engaging and interactive WBT courses. These courses can include a variety of multimedia elements, such as images, audio, and video, as well as interactive knowledge checks to ensure learners are retaining the information.

It can be used for a wide range of training needs, from onboarding and compliance training to professional development and skills training. With WBT, learners can learn at their own pace and on their own schedule, making it an effective and efficient way to learn.


Is it necessary to have training materials ready to commission an e-learning?

As an e-learning designer, I can create courses without training materials. However, having existing materials can aid the design process, providing a starting point and ensuring alignment with organizational goals.

Existing content can also be repurposed, saving time and resources. If no materials exist, I can work with your organization to develop content and a course that meets your needs. Ultimately, the process is tailored to your goals and I can provide a customized solution.

Can you design an e-learning template for our organization?

Yes, I can definitely design an e-learning template for your organization. E-learning templates provide a consistent and structured design for your online training, making it easier to create effective and engaging e-learning courses.

In addition, having a well-designed template can help your organization create future e-learning products more efficiently and effectively. It can also serve as a foundation for building your own e-learning team, allowing you to develop and produce e-learning courses in-house.

During the design process, I will work closely with your organization to understand your specific needs and goals. By following the principles of instructional design and universal design, I can create an e-learning template that is tailored to your organization's unique requirements.

Can you create an e-learning, that is accessible for people with disabilities? 

I can create an accessible e-learning course for all learners, including those with visual, auditory, and motor impairments. Using best practices and accessibility standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, I will ensure that the course is designed with clear language, alternative text for media, captions and transcripts for audio, and keyboard navigation. An accessible e-learning course ensures that everyone can benefit from the training, regardless of their abilities.

Advantages of using a WBT


WBTs are accessible from anywhere with an internet connection, so learners can complete training at their own pace and on their own schedule. This can reduce the need for costly travel and accommodation for in-person training sessions.


WBTs can be less expensive than traditional in-person training because they eliminate the need for classroom space, printed materials, and trainers. Additionally, WBTs can often be reused and updated as needed, reducing the need to create new training materials from scratch.


WBTs offer a standardized approach to training, ensuring that all learners receive the same information in the same format. This can be especially important for compliance training, where consistency and accuracy are critical.


WBTs can incorporate a range of interactive elements, such as quizzes, simulations, and multimedia, to engage learners and reinforce key concepts. Interactive elements can help learners retain information better than passive learning methods.


WBTs can be used to train large numbers of learners simultaneously, making them ideal for organizations with a geographically dispersed workforce or a large number of employees.


WBTs often provide analytics and reporting tools, allowing administrators to track learner progress, identify areas for improvement, and evaluate the effectiveness of the training program.
