Since its invention, the flight simulator has exemplified how technology can be
used to provide relevant and cost-effective training. In the 1990s, many companies have seized on this example and attempted to migrate and expand the concept into the private sector.

Left out of the mix were a majority of other organizations that, for reasons of cost or complexity, chose instead to dabble in distance learning but with little strategy or purpose. Today, using technologies such as the Internet, corporate intranets, CD-ROMs, and videoconferencing, employees are able to learn from around the world—and at a
fraction of the time and cost. The benefits don’t end there, as many studies have shown that new learning technologies increase learner achievement, forcing even the most traditional organizations to take notice. Technology-based training (TBT) is no longer a choice, but a competitive necessity.
