Welcome to a new way of learning!

image

MCI LIVE is a revolutionary way to provide professional development training to your team! It is a virtual classroom subscription that enables everyone in your organisation to book on to a live virtual session as many times as they want. Professional development courses as well as desktop training are incorporated in to the exciting new MCI LIVE calendar. 

Each session is 90 minutes in duration and the sessions are facilitator-led making them highly interactive to encourage questions and discussion. This is a key difference to self-paced online course libraries because it enables the group to address individual questions and any challenges the learners may be facing. This is all done in real time.

To embed the learning – each participant receives a PDF Learner Guide to take notes during the live session and to keep as a quick reference guide.

Why MCI LIVE?

It is not always feasible to attend a full day of face to face training, or some may want to learn a single, specific topic. For some, it is a loss of productivity that leaves them with the difficult choice to either sacrifice time attending to critical outcomes or to not learn information which they know they need, now.

Organisations are seeking more learning opportunities that are closer to being in the ‘flow of work’ using tools that are easy to access and have direct relevance to their context. For many business outcomes that are enhanced or addressed by learning, a critical mass of learners is required in the organisation to realise the benefits. Face to face learning does not always get that critical mass due to time and cost constraints, and the organisation risks disengagement or employees without the right skills.

What's in it for the business?

  • People are time-poor and want information in a user-friendly and easy to follow format, without leaving their desks.
  • Increase skills, engage teams and build a culture of ongoing lifelong learning for everyone – not just a select few.
  • Track data to ensure a strong ROI.

What's in it for the participant?

  • Feel part of a community of learners and gain knowledge and skills from peers, colleagues and the experienced facilitator.
  • Learn in their own time OR show the virtual class on a screen as a lunch and learn session to enhance the learning experience with other team members.
  • A wide range of popular programs to choose from so that skills and knowledge – and how to apply them in the workplace – improve rapidly.
