Online Training Courses and Meetings



We've been working on a new system that will allow us to deliver Live online training courses.  The system allows those attending to view the trainer and well as any other people who are in the online training room via webcams and microphone.  They can talk to the trainer, talk to each other as well as view slides and other documents that the trainer wants to share.  The trainer can also share their computer desktop should the course be of a technical nature.

The system can also be used for online meetings or conferences.

We are considering two things for it.  1.  A way for us to deliver live online training courses and 2. for other people or training providers to use the system to deliver their own training courses or hold online meetings.

The site is pretty much live and we're just going through final testing.  I don't want to post the link as I don't want to be seen as openly advertising it - you can PM me if you would like the link and a password to give it a whizz.

I guess the question I have is do you think there is a market for Live Online Training Courses?  I know a handful fo people do offer them, and a lot of people offer online conferencing but wanted to get a feel of whether people would consider it taking short training courses online.

I would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. re inventing the wheel?

    hi David,

    Sorry ….but how does what your offerring differ from the multitude of webinar, live training stream and meeting providers already out there for a number of years??

    ciscos Webex, Fuse, Gottomeeting or gotowebinar, videoseminarlive, and DimDim to name a few do all that you have listed as benefits of the system you have been working on.

    We ourselves have used DimDim for our live online training courses, which allows the tutor and classroom to be viewed, the tutor, audience and remote audience to interact, share slides, comunicate by voice and text…and even allows for the session to be recorded and posted online at a later stage.

    This is not new system.

    There is an interested market for training course to be delivered this way (saving in overheads like venue hire, travel accomodation costs for delegates…and linking in with just in time training) However,our experience has found the additional benefit of recording and referencing or replaying the course later (for those that couldn’t attended or due to timezones) is the biggest benefit. It is also worth noting that these types of mediums for training delivery are just another alternative.

    I hope you have a USP for your system or haven’t explained a key feature as unfortunately it sounds like your re-inventing the wheel.







  2. thanks
    Thank you for your response.

    I’m aware of all of the providers below but was much more interested in the market for online courses.

    The system we have build is made up of open source software which cost us nothing so I guess the real benefit for us personally is not paying another provider to use their service.
    Allowing others to use it was only an idea really and I’m not looking to compete with anyone, but its good to know there is a market for line online training.

    Thanks again Lee
