Self-Paced Courses

Self-paced offerings provide a convenient and cost-effective way to reach a large or globally diverse end-user community. We offer self-paced offerings in Web-based training (WBT) and self-paced virtual class (SPVC) formats.

Web Based Training (WBT) Courses

WBTs are modularly designed with a blend of multimedia, interactive labs, and assessments that are scored. Courses are available by download or on CD-ROM, and can be installed to your local machine, on a LAN or intranet, or on a Learning Management System (LMS) web server. The IBM Learner Portal offers a hosted solution, where customers will receive a login upon purchase, will log into a WBT online, take the course and receive a certificate of completion.


Recordings or vignettes are multimedia instructor-delivered presentations and product demonstrations. These offerings are useful as short tutorials on in-depth topics, knowledge refreshers, and new features training.

Self-Paced Virtual Classes (SPVC)

SPVC’s are identical in training content to the instructor-led training classes except that customers can learn at their own pace. Using a training manual and virtual lab environment, SPVC learners read the training content and work through the demos and workshops on their own. This is ideally suited for people who prefer to learn on their own, at their own pace or are in a geographic location that makes ILT courses impractical.
