Virtual Classroom Learning

Virtual Classroom Learning

Most of our courses are available for virtual delivery and whilst they are always different a face to face course they can be just as effective depending on your personal circumstances.  We run our Virtual Classroom Learning or VCL as we call it using various pieces of software.  We select the software depending on the Learning Objectives that are required for the course or on a Private course we may also be able to use software to suit our clients needs.  We use everything from GoToTraining, Teams or NewRow to name but 3 for our VCL courses to act as the classroom and then proprietary software such as Mural and Remote Desktop to bring the magic.

Regardless of the classroom and software required you will get a full Getting prepared guide a couple of weeks before the course to test all of your Tech!  All of our Virtual courses also share these common features and benefits:

Video Link

Delegates will see and hear the Trainer via a video link. The Trainer can also see your webcam as a delegate.

Two-way screen sharing

Screens shared will differ depending on course content. Be it a PowerPoint presentation or, for Technical courses, the screen showcasing and demonstrating the software. Trainers can share their screens, but also request that the delegate shares their screen too, creating the ultimate in two-way connectivity.

Two-way control

In addition to simply sharing screens, the Trainer can give a delegate the ability to control the Trainer’s computer or equally request the control of a delegate’s computer. It’s the virtual version of leaning over your shoulder and taking control of your mouse for a second to help you out. Connectivity shifts to interactivity.


Who doesn’t love a bit of drawing? With virtual classroom learning, artistry need not end. The trainer can draw on the screen that they are sharing, highlighting important points to all delegates or drawing over their slides. In addition, the trainer can also give a delegate the ability to draw on the screen for all to see, just like they would hand over a whiteboard marker in the classroom.

Polls & Tests

As well as engaging with the delegates verbally, the trainer can use interactive polls and tests. The easiest way to think of polls is like a “Who wants to be a Millionaire” Ask The Audience. After delegates have taken part,the trainer can either use that information to influence their ongoing delivery or to share the anonymised results with the class. Tests are exactly what you’d expect. A series of questions which the trainer has set. Delegates can go through these at their own pace and once again the Trainer can then see the aggregated results and share with the class if they so wish.

Breakout Rooms

It is the virtual version of wheeling your chair over into the corner! Just like in a traditional classroom, delegates can collaborate on a document or discuss a topic set by the Trainer. The Trainer can jump in and out of each breakout room as they wish, just like they would walk around in the physical world.


The delegates have the ability to send chat messages to the trainer, vice versa, or classroom wide. These messages can be especially useful if a delegate is having an issue that the trainer needs to be made aware of, or if the trainer notices that a delegate is struggling in some way.

Tea, Coffee & Biscuits

Sorry there are some things that even we simply cannot do virtually. But rest assure you will have regular breaks, maybe more regular than in the real world, to keep you engaged and ready to learn more. Might as well be comfy if you’re at home!
