It allows learners learn at their pace and the training progress is tracked by the computer, hence assigning grades instantly. In simple terms, it is a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning.

and Asynchronous (self-paced, online courses/courseware) are both going up a little, but actually shows slower rate of growth than classroom.
