  • The course will be split into multiple sessions, with short breaks in between so you can stay focused and refreshed.
  • Throughout the course the learning professional will use an electronic whiteboard, which will transmit all the notes directly to your screen.
  • You can ask the learning professional a question at any time, either by simply speaking aloud through your microphone or by clicking the virtual ‘raise-a-hand’ button on the interface.
  • Towards the end of the course there will be plenty of time for detailed Q&As with the learning professional, just as if you were physically in the classroom.
