The article presents an interview with Steve Zahm, co-founder and vice-president of DigitalThink. When asked on what a company should look for when choosing an online training company, Zahm responded that they should look for true Web-based training. True Web-based training is effective because it does not require any additional infrastructure investment. Students should simply have a computer that is connected to the Internet and can run a Web browser.
