CBT and WBT: A Comparison

CBT
  • Installable/downloadable to learners' hard-disks
  • Allows course access without Internet/Intranet
  • Learners can track their progress
  • No bandwidth concerns
  • Convenient for traveling learners
  • Does not allow community-building and score comparison

WBT

  • Course accessed using a virtual address or location using the Intranet/Internet
  • Learners can track progress and compare result with other learners
  • Bandwidth and net access speed are the primary design factors
  • Convenient for traveling learners with Internet/VPN access
  • Provides tremendous scope for community-building, for example, tutors, chats and web-seminars
