Virtual training sessions
When COVID caused the first UK lockdown in March 2020 we were very quick to adapt to virtual delivery, using mainly Zoom or MS Teams. We continue to deliver training virtually today, in response to customers' preferences, even though most of our training has reverted to face-to-face delivery.
Virtual training is NOT the same as e-learning. For virtual training there is a "real" trainer delivering the session in real-time, interacting with the participants.
1. Virtual training sessions
Virtual training sessions 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 15 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.
We can issue participants with electronic certificates and feedback forms at the end of a session if you wish.
A webinar is a presentation to a large group, rather than a training session. The attendees can see and hear the presenter and can type questions to them using the chat function. But the attendees cannot see, hear or interact verbally with anyone else.
