When organizations consider training options for their employees, they have to consider offering an e-learning training format or an instructor-led training format. One major factor in determining which format to use is cost. Cost factors include course development, instructor time, instructor salaries, preparation time, classroom/conference room costs, travel expenses, material costs, and employees' time. Other factors that are sometimes not included are the instructional efficiency and the speed of delivery training. Instructional efficiency is where all of the information delivered leads to learning that improves performance.
