Short for Web-based training, a generic term for training and/or instruction delivered over the Internet or an intranet using a Web browser. Web-based training includes static methods -- such as streaming audio and video, hyperlinked Web pages, live Web broadcasts, and portals of information -- and interactive methods -- such as bulletin boards, chat rooms, instant messaging, videoconferencing and discussion threads.

Businesses often use Web-based training to educate employees. The instruction can be facilitated and paced by the trainer or self-directed and paced by the trainee.

Contrast with distance learning and computer-based training.
