Employee Training Moves to the Virtual Classroom
Organizations looking to provide critical IT and business skills training to their employees are increasingly turning to the virtual classroom. As virtual classroom technologies have improved, and business has grown more fast-paced and geographically dispersed, virtual classroom training has emerged as a more cost-effective and flexible solution than traditional classroom training. Environmentally-conscious organizations have also recognized the virtual classroom as "green training," since it eliminates the need for travel and reduces paper production and waste.

Skillsoft is a leading provider of virtual classroom training, corporate courseware, digital books, and other online training programs. Skillsoft's virtual classroom solution gives you a better return on your investment by getting more people trained in less time than would a conventional classroom approach. Our flexible class scheduling makes virtual classroom training easy to fit into, even with the most hectic of schedules.
Skillsoft offers virtual classroom instruction in a wide variety of information technology platforms and business skills development topics, and new courses are released each month. Skillsoft's engaging, highly interactive virtual classroom instruction presents learners with three mutually supporting elements on their computer screens:
- On the periphery of the screen, live audio-video streaming is provided by the instruction team leading the class. Skillsoft's virtual classroom training is typically led by teams of two instructors, since team teaching has been shown to improve student learning and retention.
- In the center of the screen, multimedia presentation materials are selected by the virtual classroom instructors. These may include text, graphics, and animation to support the learning process, as well as interactive elements like quizzes and exercises.
- Also on the periphery of the screen appears a roster of students attending the virtual classroom, accompanied by a chat function that enables students to communicate with each other and with the instructors in real time.
For added flexibility, Skillsoft also offers recorded "encore" presentations of its virtual classroom lessons, in addition to the live versions.
