How is this course taught?
This is a live online classroom based course. Just like a physical classroom environment, a live teacher presents the course. S/he uses diagrams, draws on a virtual board which you can see, presents material, and engages the class. You can ask questions and get an instant response. These are not pre-recorded lessons. You can interact with the teacher and other students. You will be able to see your teacher as they will have a webcam on them. Watch the video below to get an idea of how it works.
What do I need?
You will need access to a PC and an internet connection with a speed of at least 2MB per second. If you have broadband, then this should be more than enough. You will also need a webcam, set of speakers and a microphone to see, hear and speak with your tutor. If you have a laptop, all of these should be built in. If you are unsure about anything, please feel free to ask us.
