IGLESIAS, Mar  and  SALGADO, Jesús F.. Effectiveness of occupational training through videoconferencing: comparison with classroom training and individual differences. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2012, vol.28, n.3, pp.183-188. ISSN 2174-0534.

This article reports on a research in which a comparison is made between the effectiveness of classroom training and training through videoconference. The sample consisted of 561 adults that participated in training courses for entrepreneurs in both training modalities. The results were analyzed according to the first-level of effectiveness in Kirkpatrick´s model of evaluation of training effectiveness. The results show that both training modalities were very well appraised by the participants, but there are differences in the instructor appraisal, who resulted slightly better assessed in the case of classroom training. Finally, the implications of the results are discussed and new research and potential moderators of effectiveness are suggested.

Keywords : effectiveness; classroom training; individual differences; videoconference.
