Will converting an existing face-to-face training to an online course reduce its time duration?
Yes, almost always. The time reduction is about 50%, so if you have a one-day classroom training, it should take half a day to complete online. However, this time reduction varies widely from one course to the other (from 20% to 80%).
It is necessary to analyse the type of your content since converting a classroom training to an online course is not about transferring content, it’s about transforming it. What works in a classroom setting will not necessarily work online. Learning needs must be carefully analysed to identify the most suitable online delivery method for the learners.
