Content
Content
 Online modules contain interactive slides, graphs, and animations. Quality is maintained and materials can be accessed from any internet ready location at any time.  Textbooks and videos and paperwork can deteriorate in quality, and ensuring material is current can be impractical. Updating the material is less than ideal.
Consistency
Consistency
 Web based training remains the same across locations and time. The information can be accessed immediately, with no variation from instance to instance.  Instructor led training can vary across instructors and from instance to instance. Assuring the consistency of the material is very difficult. How do you know everyone is getting the same training?
Retention
Retention
 Employees are required to actively participate in the learning process, answering questions required to advance in the training. Employees cannot tune out the content, and preserve the information more effectively when learning at their own pace.  Employees are passively listening to a classroom lecture, or tuning out mundane videos and presentations. Poorly designed and executed classes can anesthetize workers; they either quickly forget or ignore lessons.
Tracking
Tracking
 Managers can create tracking and progress reports including specific criteria. Trafficschool.com's system allows multiple administrators in multiple locations access to information. No paperwork is required, though it is always available.  Tracking is conducted on a small scale and requires a large number of reports and time spent to inform supervisors and management. Data can easily be lost or misplaced.
Implementing
Implementing
 TrafficSchool.com can customize programs to meet your company's individual needs. This includes implementing company specific curriculum, rollout of training program, and troubleshooting.  Organizing and coordinating of the distribution of requisite training materials can be problematic and cumbersome, especially with a geographically broad workforce.
