Available now - virtual training sessions and webinars
The Coronavirus outbreak has caused organisations, understandably, to be reluctant to arrange face-to-face training sessions for the time being. As an alternative, therefore, we can offer two different types of training which participants can access remotely.
- Virtual training sessions
Virtual training sessions
Virtual training sesions are the closest thing to real, face-to-face training sessions. Participants access the training “room” via their own device (computer, laptop, tablet, mobile phone etc) over the internet.
Typically you might have up to 12 participants on any one session. As long as each participant’s device has a microphone and an internal camera, then everyone can see and hear everyone else. Only the host (ie the trainer from St Thomas Training) needs to have an account. Everyone else just logs in to the unique link that they are given via email.
The host (trainer) is live, so he or she can interact in real time with participants. The trainer can share files with participants, and can display various resources such as a PowerPoint presentation, or a video clip, or something else from a different screen altogether (eg from their own tablet or mobile device). Participants can speak and ask questions just as they would in a face-to-face training session, or they can submit written questions or comments via a chat box. The trainer can also split participants into breakout rooms where they can discuss an issue in small groups for a few minutes, before they return to the main training room.
We can issue participants with electronic certificates and feedback forms at the end of a session if you wish.
A webinar is more like a presentation. Again the host (presenter) is live, and again the participants access the “room” by clicking on a link. You can have more attendees for a webinar than for a virtual training session (we suggest up to 30, but talk to us about your requirements).
Attendees can see and hear the presenter on their screen. They can communicate with the presenter by clicking a button to “raise a hand” and then they can either ask a question via a chat box, or the presenter could switch on that attendee’s microphone temporarily to hear their spoken question.
Please contact us on 02380 970 914 or firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal discussion. We will be very happy to hear from you.
