Initial findings from running this training model (in UK context) are that there is value added from the clients’ point of view.
|Value of accessibility – useful where access is limited perhaps because of geographical location or disability or child/elder care commitments|
|Value of anonymity – useful for client to try something new without committing to it – particularly appropriate at points of transition e.g. towards redundancy, towards the unfamiliar|
|Value of reliability – response should always be the same given the same input – the computer doesn’t have moods or human fallibility|
