The challenge of maintaining a skilled workforce is a tremendous one in our fast paced knowledge economy.
While quality staff training is incredibly important, the need for convenient, budget and time saving methods is becoming increasingly imperative. One of the trends or options in this regard is Virtual Instructor Led classroom Training (VILT). According to a white paper by iLinc video and audio conferencing firm, VILT allows students to join courses from the convenience of their own homes or offices, reduces travel budget and even reduce the carbon footprint associated with travelling.
VILT can be very engaging, interactive and valuable if done by its experts. Esri, the geographic information systems firm indicated the significant difference between quality VILT and tedious virtual power point presentations with questions at the end.
Red Education’s VILT is delivered by instructors not only experts in their respective fields, but also experts in the delivery techniques of value-add VILT. These instructors well understand the need for interactive, engaging and quality driven virtual educations. Red Education’s VILT courses are aided with the frequent use of virtual white board techniques. White board drawings done during the virtual sessions further explain complex concepts and achieve full student comprehension.
Full lab access is available to students during the Virtual Instructor Led Training sessions. Our instructors assist students with all their lab issues in the same manner as they would do in a physical classroom. The labs are available to students 24/7 for the full duration of the VILT course.
VILT can in many aspects present further interactivity options to students. Red Education uses a virtual classroom technology that is best of its class. This technology allows all students to ask questions at the same time using the chat panel. Shy students who might have avoided asking questions in a physical classroom can comfortably ask their questions and get their answers privately in their chat panels. A student can virtually raise his/her hand for a question or even ask his/her question at any time using his/her phone or microphone.
Red Education endeavors to offer its valuable clients flexible training options. VILT is available to your organization side by side with our industry recognized physical ILT.
