IT Training Online: Benefits of Remote Classroom Instruction
Online training has been around for a while and most of us have participated in eLearning at some point. Training is offered online for everything from basic software to technical certification programs.
Our Remote Classroom Instruction (RCI) is a bit different than most online training. RCI is not a webinar – RCI is live instructor-led training delivered online. RCI provides opportunities for valuable instruction to students who might have previously been unable to participate in online training. Let’s discuss some of the advantages and benefits of RCI.
RCI is Convenient
The biggest benefit of RCI is that our classes run more frequently giving you more choice of class dates to fit your schedule. Because RCI allows us to combine enrollments from many locations, we can run more classes and that means you will get your training when you need it.
RCI is Inclusive
With RCI, anyone can participate in online training without needing all of the required resources. ONLC has more than 300 locations across the country where you can attend training and not worry about hardware, software, network connectivity, or AV setup. It’s all taken care of for you before you arrive.
RCI is Nearby
Training centers are located in safe, easy to find locations and public parking is usually nearby at low or no cost to students. The training locations are also professionally staffed and contain break rooms and restrooms for your convenience.
RCI is Accessible
Another benefit of RCI is that everyone taking the class has access to the instructor. If you get stuck on a lab exercise or need individual help, the instructor can assist you using a screen sharing session and get you caught up. You can also interact with the instructor through a conference call and speak with them as if you were in the same room.
RCI is Engaging
Most of the time, the classes will average around eight students per class. Smaller class sizes ensure that everyone receives the right amount of access to the instructor. Also, because ONLC can combine students enrolled at different locations, they have a very low rate of cancellation. This way you can be certain that you’ll be able to complete your training when it is scheduled.
RCI is Productive
Training at one of the many ONLC locations will also get you out of the office so that you don’t have to worry about interruptions. When coworkers or management know that you’re at your desk, they’re more likely to ask you questions. However, when you are at an ONLC location, you are not likely to be interrupted.
RCI is Available Nearly Anywhere
If you do have all of the necessary resources, with RCI you can take training at your location. Sometimes it’s more convenient to stay at home than to have to travel to attend training.
