SEBASTOPOL, CA--(Marketwired - December 05, 2016) - O'Reilly Media announces the addition of live online training courses to Safari, the company's learning and training platform. Available exclusively on Safari, the training courses are presented online, in real time, by an expert instructor from O'Reilly's unparalleled network of innovators and master practitioners. Access to all training courses is included in Safari memberships, at no added cost to members.

The new online training offers both the personal attention and immediacy of instructor-led training and the attend-from-anywhere convenience of an online course. Designed to encourage and support team learning, courses include group exercises and discussion tools that allow students to chat with the instructor and each other.

"Given the pace of change affecting every business today, training is a necessity, not a nice-to-have," said Laura Baldwin, president of O'Reilly Media. "Our online training courses offer companies the best of both worlds. Any employee with an internet connection can attend a course, which saves time and travel costs. But because it's happening in real time, attendees benefit from the focus and reinforcement that only a live instructor can provide. Your staff won't get stuck in the middle of a Safari online training course, because the instructor is right there to answer their questions."

Supporting materials for O'Reilly live online training courses are drawn from Safari's comprehensive, multiformat collection of learning content and include formative assessment to give students ongoing feedback as they progress through a course.

"As they help build their company's future, working professionals never stop needing to acquire new knowledge and skills. Our courses cover the gamut of crucial and emerging topics and go far beyond the basics," said Paco Nathan, O'Reilly's director of learning. "And unlike on-demand video training, our live online courses require students to be fully present and engaged. They learn with the direct supervision of an expert instructor, so they get real-time feedback and immediate answers to their questions."
