Training with Web Seminars

The other day I was talking with a friend who conducted software training for his company. He was complaining about the amount of travel he had to do all the time and all of the logistics that were involved. Of course, I extolled the benefits of web conferencing and told him it could not only save him a bunch of money but also keep him sane. After talking with him for a bit, I decided to come up with this table that will help highlight the advantages of web conferencing over traveling (or what I refer to as "The Old Way").

I have sent this table on to my friend. I hope it convinces him that web conferencing can help him balance his training schedule more effectively. Being a former software trainer myself, I understand that sometimes there is a need to be face-to-face. However, the majority of the times you do not need to get on that flight and make that hotel reservation. You can simply roll out of bed, stroll over to the computer and begin training with your virtual participants. I would love to hear from you about anything I missed that makes web conferencing advantageous over traveling.
