Teletraining Law and Legal Definition

Teletraining is instruction that makes use of telecommunications technology such as satellites, television, computers, and fiber-optic networks. Teletraining traditionally is related to distance learning. It is often live instruction conducted in real time.

Teletraining is becoming widely recognized as an effective training delivery strategy in government, academia, and industry. Using teletraining, the classroom is no longer constrained to four walls holding all participants and instructors. With this alternative delivery strategy, the instructor can reach more staff on more subjects more cost-effec-tively. Its successful implementation, however, requires new skills and attitudes.
