VIRTUAL CLASSROOM—EDUCATION ANYWHERE
The next generation of instructor-led training has arrived! Business Objects introduces Virtual Classroom offerings for select classes through Business Objects education services. Instructor-led training is a powerful resource for the process of learning. Undoubtedly, having an instructor deliver content, answer questions, and provide coaching greatly benefits students. As well, the opportunity for hands-on practice during the class is an irreplaceable part of learning.
The new Virtual Classroom from Business Objects provides you with an online training option that’s just as effective as classroom training. It provides the same hands-on experience of a traditional classroom, as well as real-time access to instructors:without the need to travel to a central location. This means less time away from work and a lower overall cost for education. We are providing business objects authorized training and resource solutions through our team of Business Objects certified and globally recognized professionals to meet the corporate requirements.
ENGAGING, INTERACTIVE, HANDS-ON LEARNING
Virtual Classroom uses a combination of text, graphics, and animation to explain concepts visually. The Virtual Classroom instructor interacts with students, frequently asking questions and viewing student progress. Two-way audio allows for classroom-like question-and-answer interaction. Students can also send questions to the instructor through an online chat tool.
In addition, a virtual lab environment lets students see demonstrations and practice procedures. These hands-on activities enable Virtual Classroom participants to test, explore, and practice with the actual software they’re learning to use. Just as they would in a traditional classroom, students enter an online lab and perform activities. The instructor can view each student’s virtual machine to provide guidance and coaching. Business Objects VirtualClassroom has two components:
Presentation—Instructors present educational content through video, demonstrations, white boards, PowerPoint, Word, and PDF documents. Students can communicate with the entire class or one-on-one with the instructor as needed.
Virtual Lab—Students can perform classroom activities as if they were sitting in a physical classroom. Local y installed Business Objects software is not required.
