About This Site

The Web-Based Training Information Center (WBTIC) is a private site, not affiliated with any company or institution. WBTIC offers no services and offers no products for sale, and it accepts no advertising. WBTIC was first established online in December 1994 and has been in continuous operation ever since.

WBTIC is the creation of Tim Kilby, who coined the terms Web-based training (WBT) and Web-based performance support system (WBPSS) when the Web was in its infancy. Tim's professional experience includes technical direction, computer systems analysis, user interface design, media production, instructional systems design, and classroom instruction. He has been actively involved in the design and production of computer-based training and Web-based training for over twelve years.
