From increased inclusivity to better flexibility, remote learning offers a range of benefits – and its growing popularity shows no sign of slowing.
Given the demand for this style of learning, we’ve introduced a range of remote courses, delivered in real-time via Microsoft Teams across our Healthcare, Commercial and Defence portfolios.
We’ve caught up with our Customer Service & Sales Advisor, Krissy Devall, for her view on remote learning and what she feels the greatest benefits are for delegates.
How have you seen remote learning evolve over the past 18 months?
Since the beginning of lockdown, we have seen a real demand for this style of learning which is still ongoing. As the virtual learning environment as a whole has evolved over the last two years, so have our Teams courses, in order to meet the specific needs of our learners. We’re proud to offer delegates the exact same experience that they would receive in the classroom, including a full set of training materials delivered to their chosen location.
What do you consider the greatest benefits of remote learning for delegates?
Remote learning provides a long list of benefits, but above all I feel that it offers the accessibility of time and place. Delegates are able to train from their ‘comfort zone’ or location of choice, meaning they don’t need to take into account travel or accommodation expenses – which is always a plus!
How have delegates responded to this style of learning?
Overall, the feedback has been really positive. The courses that we deliver on Teams are solely for classroom-based learning courses and have been set up to run exactly how they would in person. Our trainers deliver these courses live to groups of 5-10 people maximum, which is great for communication and collaboration. There are also additional staff on call if any technical support is needed.
