Our instructor-led online training is not a video feed from an onsite classroom, where the remote students are an after thought. It's live training with a live instructor focused exclusively on the remote students.
Webucator's instructor-led online training solution solves the most frequent problems individuals encounter when looking for training from their local training centers:
|Webucator's Instructor-led Online Training||Other Companies' Instructor-led Online Training|
|Overall Experience||The only students in the class are those who are connecting live online. Everyone in your class is connected via a live web conference, even your instructor. The class is designed and structured exclusively for online delivery.||Most students in the class are at a physical location. The training facility has developed a method to enable distance students to participate online in what is primarily an onsite class. You will probably be watching a live video feed of an onsite classroom.|
|Travel||You can attend our online classrooms from your home or office.||You often have to travel to the training center and participate from a computer there.|
|Class Size||Class sizes are small (typically between 2-6 students), allowing for lots of interaction between students and the trainer.||Classes tend to have higher attendance numbers, with some students in the onsite classroom, and some students viewing an online video feed.|
|Class Format||The instructor is working closely with you at all times.
Follow along as the trainer shares his or her desktop and explains concepts. Then, complete an exercise on your own computer. Then, review the exercise with the trainer.
With a small class size, trainers are able to ensure that everyone fully understands the exercises. Trainers have time to walk you through exercises, discuss solutions, and answer your questions. If you have a question or need help, you can easily share your computer screen with the Instructor.
|The instructor presentation is a live video feed from the onsite classroom. Students participate by viewing slides, whiteboards, and practicing with concepts.
The larger class size and need to work with both onsite and online students can make it challenging for the instructor to ensure that everyone understands and completes the exercises.
|Course Offerings||Webucator offers a wide variety of training through this format including Microsoft, Java, Adobe, Google, Ruby on Rails, jQuery, and more!||Many companies are unable to deliver on Microsoft, Java, Ruby on Rails, jQuery, and other topics through the instructor-led online format due to the technical set-up required or specialized nature of the topic.|
|Participation & Assistance||Using a microphone/headset, you can listen to and speak with your trainer at all times, so getting involved is really easy. Simply ask a question using your microphone. If you prefer to submit questions or comments to your trainer via chat, you can do that too.
With your permission, your instructor will be able to see your screen to guide you through the lesson.
|With most other instructor-led online options, you can speak out loud using speakerphone, or share your work with the trainer
|Cancelation Policy||Webucator never cancels classes for low enrollment.||Most other training companies will cancel if there are not enough students.|
|Retakes||Unlimited retakes! Come back and participate fully!||Most other training companies classes do not have an unlimited retake policy.|
