Your experiences of the live virtual classroom so far…


A survey of TrainingZONE members reveals the majority are comfortable with the idea of using collaborative technology to deliver learning.

90 per cent of those taking part in the Poll thought that using technologies to create a virtual classroom was a positive development. A quarter of those who responded said they were already using technology such as chat rooms and teleconferencing for training courses, and were happy with how the technology involved was performing.

However, a further third said they were interested in using the technology to create a live virtual classroom environment, but felt that it wasn't currently good enough to give a proper experience for the user and tutor.

20 per cent felt that finance was a barrier to the take-up of collaborative tools, agreeing with the statement that using a virtual classroom would only be useful for large corporates with deep pockets. A futher 10 per cent said that other methods of online learning, such as CDROMs and straightforward web-based courses, were more effective.

If you're interested in using collaborative tools in your training delivery, TrainingZONE can point you in the right direction.
