Enhance your Virtual Classrooms with Trainingportal
13 / 05 / 2020
Virtual Classrooms are an efficient and effective alternative to face-to-face training. They are live, low cost, flexible, and social.
Presenters can stimulate debate and decision making, interject, offer guidance or step back and let the group work things out for themselves. Sessions are recorded and can be made available as an ongoing training resource for all attendees. Face-to-face training activities can be re-purposed and combined with new, engaging training experiences and collaborative learning environments.
Attendees are empowered to participate by posting their opinions, questions, and responses in chat boxes, in real-time, and without interrupting the presenter. The sessions can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, on your preferred device, and with no overhead costs for training facilities, travel, accommodation, and expenses.
‘Trainingportal works seamlessly with Virtual Classrooms, providing online communication, management, certification, and tracking to complete the end to end virtual package.’
