Why Classroom Training is Sooo Much Better Than #eLearning

In honor of Dave Letterman and an end of an era, my top ten list... 

Why traditional classroom training is soooo much better than eLearning:
  1. You can learn at another person's pace.
  2. Get to see what the beltway looks like at 8 am. 
  3. Stale donuts.
  4. Sit next to that annoying guy from Finance. 
  5. Get another 2 1/2 inch binder. 
  6. Leave at 4:30. Hey, does the beltway look the same at 4:30?
  7. Complete a level 1 evaluation and let them know the trainer was real nice, but the room was cold. 
  8. Because there's a good chance I can be told "to put my phone away."
  9. I get to take the class once and if I need to review it, well maybe there's another one soon. 
  10. Who doesn't love a slightly awkward icebreaker?
Feel free to add your own in the comments section.
