How will I obtain my courseware?
Students attending Live Online Training virtual classes will receive their courseware prior to the start of class. Courseware format will be either digital (distributed via email) or printed (arriving via mail).
What is the deadline for registration in order for courseware to arrive?
Registrations deadlines vary. Courses with digital courseware can accept registrations up to the last business day before class. Courses which require the delivery of printed course materials require more advance notice. (Generally speaking 3 business days before class is sufficient. Later registrations are possible in most cases, with the student being notified there is a chance courseware will arrive after the start of class.)
Can students listen to the instructor’s presentation over the Internet through their computer speakers?
You can connect to the audio conference via VOIP connections (like Skype). Please be aware that some service charge fees may apply, and that voice quality over VOIP is highly dependent on the stability of your internet connection.
What technology does Live Online Training use and what does the student see when they log in?
Live Online Training is powered by Windows Server 2012 terminal services and Adobe Connect. Students will be provided with a confirmation email containing a link to the Live Online Training log-in website. Students will find a simple and straight forward interface that allows them to attend their class.
How can students ask questions when attending a Live Online Training class?
Students can ask questions of their instructor (or classmates) in the same way they would be able to if they were sitting in class. Adobe Connect also provides an instant messaging feature that allows seamless two way transfer of web links, text, and other data between student and instructor.
How do Live Online Training students complete the labs when they are not physically in the classroom?
Students remotely control a computer in our classroom. They will be able to complete all labs that the live students are assigned. The instructor can also connect to the Live Online Training student's lab computer remotely to provide assistance.
