Death may the ultimate leveler. Short of that, though, it's the Internet that's creating a level playing field. This is true in many areas but it is particularly in the area of training and education that the web has enabled professionals to learn, get certified, and obtain accreditation - all without traveling.
Our very own Rob Wagner has teamed-up with Salma Michor to write Distance Learning for Professional Development in Regulatory Affairs [PDF link] for the current issue of RAPS Focus.
Salma and Rob examine the advantages, disadvantages, and effectiveness of today's approaches to distance learning: webinars, audio conferences, and self-paced learning modules. The authors do a nice job examining geographic differences in uses and attitudes towards distance learning.
If you are a trainer, developer, or distance learner, take a look at their excellent article [PDF link].
