Live Online Courses
What is 'Live' online learning?
Live online courses are internet-based real time events. They are organised in a live virtual meeting room where delegates and trainers meet to communicate via voice, video and screen sharing. Live online classes require delegates and trainers to be online simultaneously, at a predefined time, as specified in the email invite sent by the trainer.
Typically the courses will be delivered via Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
Benefits of Online Learning
Live Online courses offer a lower cost training option, allowing organisations to further their training budgets and to pay for only the training they need.
- You only pay for what you want to learn
- Its convenient and flexible
- Short sessions, your whole day is not taken up
- You learn immediately, no need to wait for a course or indeed travel to one
- You can learn from your office or from home or anywhere you fancy
Whilst online sessions can’t totally replace traditional learning methods, it can be a good medium for the delivery of effective training (especially in a geographically dispersed organisation, or when Covid-19 strikes!).
Get the most out of Online Learning
- Make a plan. Write down what you want to accomplish. Discuss your training objectives with your managers and colleagues if appropriate.
- Update your PC. Ensure you have the latest versions of all the software you will need e.g. Teams, Zoom, plug-ins etc.
- Diarise. Schedule specific times to spend on your courses and commit to these appointments.
- Get help from your friends. Learning in groups is more fun.. Sharing ideas can extend your learning and increase retention.
- Avoid distractions. When learning get rid of distractions (e.g. email, mobile) and close the door. If you work in an open area use headphones.
- Chill; enjoy. Relaxation can help you concentrate and increase your learning.
- Make notes. On key points, questions, or ideas you want to remember or explore after the session.
- Break regularly. You can only concentrate for so long before becoming distracted.
- Share your knowledge. Share what you have learnt with colleagues or friends. Teaching others helps you retain what you have learnt.
