Virtual Classrooms, often described as synchronous online learning sessions, are accessible to anyone who has a computer, tablet or smartphone.

45

Engaging and Interactive

Learners are engaged in active listening and interact with our professional facilitators – and with other learners – to enjoy the same benefits from socialising, discussion, taking notes, experimenting and completing exercises.

334

Time Saving

Virtual classrooms are perfect for time-poor workers wherever they are – in their offices, even from their homes or internet cafe. This means huge savings in travel and accommodation costs and less time spent away from work.

51

Mixed Skills

Because the quality of any learning experience is heavily influenced by the people with whom it’s shared, Virtual Classroom brings colleagues with mixed skillsets together so just as in the classroom, everyone benefits from the workplace knowledge of someone else.

37

Scalable

Virtual Classroom programs are eminently scalable – both up and down. Courseware is easy to update and costs nothing to distribute, and gone are the logistical headaches of hiring more trainers, finding additional teaching space and timetabling in more courses.

Easy Courseware

Courseware is delivered in easy-to-digest, easy-to-apply chunks, either our proven learning materials that are ready to run or customised to your organisation’s unique requirements.

Popular

And importantly, Virtual Classrooms are popular with today’s worker! That’s because they are technology-based, convenient, interactive, collaborative and peer-assisted. What’s not to love?
