It’s here! It’s finished! Our Virtual Classroom is now up and running and integrated into our online Learning Zone. We’ve been working hard over the past six months or so with our Web Design guys, Design by Distraction, and Web Conferencing guys, Mizaru.
Local company Design by Distraction have pulled out all the stops and totally redeveloped our online Learning Zone. Our learners now have access to: programme materials, videos; audio materials and cultural tips related to their programme. It not only looks good but is also really user friendly.
Middlesborough based Mizaru has produced a first by providing a tight integration for WordPress with the Adobe Connect system, allowing users direct access to rooms and recordings through the use of a Single Sign-On (SSO) mechanism. This means that users need only sign in to Optima's Learning Zone and they gain automatic entry to the award-winning web conferencing platform, creating a robust, easy and secure solution to our Virtual Classroom needs.
The Virtual Classroom offers learners a variety of features including:
- Interactive whiteboard allowing the trainer and learners to collaborate on documents
- Share Pod allows learners to view training presentations, watch video content and upload their own content for the trainer or peer group to review
- Recorded sessions build a knowledge repository allowing learners to reference and review sessions.
This is also a great facility for those unable to attend sessions due to their business commitments.
We hope that these new developments will have a massive impact on our business. We are already working with overseas markets but are looking to increase our client base and have already had some great feedback regarding our online delivery.
Why not try it out for yourself. Just get in touch and we’ll give you a taste of our Learning Zone and Virtual Classroom.
