Podcasts allow the same training message to reach a large number of people, across a variety of platforms, such as i-phone, Blackberry or memory sticks -- where people may not have easy access to internet connectivity.
For example, Farnham Castle recently produced a tailored podcast series for staff on an oil rig, ensuring everyone could benefit from the intercultural programme created. Podcasts can also be accessed through company intranets allowing employees to receive valuable information and advice at a time to suit their own schedule.
Due to the elimination of the cost of venue hire and travel expenses, remote training has far less impact on any training budget, allowing essential training to become as accessible as possible. From an environmental perspective, using technology in this way also reduces the impact related to unnecessary travel which should also be a concern for every member of society in today's world.
Remote training has many advantages for the expatriate and the developments in technology over the past few years have begun to allow this new and exciting method of training to deliver. Moving to a new country is exciting, and yet at the same time can be stressful and challenging. The right training delivered at the right time, can help the smooth integration into a new culture and now this can be accessed remotely from anywhere across the globe.
