Two ways of Creating Your Own Online Courseware

As a teacher, do you still share the skilled knowledge with your students by the teaching method face to face? As a trainer, do you deliver the practical information by letting the trainees attend your class in a room? Traditionally, you may think students should go to classroom to gain the knowledge, while trainees join a class to learn more about the skills. However, when a teacher has thousands of students, and a trainer has piles of details to show, do you choose the traditional way to share your knowledge or details? If you say yes, then I have to tell that is time-consuming. Actually, online courseware learning is the exact one to share your courseware efficiently.
