An online training is a training that is given live in a digital classroom, together with a trainer and fellow course members. This is not E-learning! The program Learnit uses for this is Zoom.
To learn more about how this program works and how you would use it as a student, we have made an instruction video for students.
Besides the instruction video mentioned above, we would also like to show you in other ways how online training at Learnit works, because in addition to the instruction video for learners, we have also made a webinar in which we go into more detail about the Zoom software, which you can watch here. We also made an animated video that explains in a few minutes how Zoom works for learners at Learnit, you can watch it here.
→ Internet, audio and a webcam.
Preferably a laptop or computer, but participation via a telephone is also possible.
This is not required but recommended. If you can't or don't want to download the program, we recommend to use Google Chrome to participate in the training.
→ Zoom and other similar online video chat programs have been bad news in the past because of privacy issues. Learnit of course keeps a close eye on this. To prevent any problems as much as possible, we make sure that all our online training rooms are encrypted and that only people who register for this are allowed to enter the room. Furthermore, we only ask for the most necessary data; the name that appears in the screen and the email address where the invitation to the meeting is sent to. In this way we try to guarantee your privacy. For further questions or concerns about privacy we can be reached at email@example.com.
We recommend to sit with your screen towards a light source (window or lamp). This means that the light shines into your face and not from behind. Make sure that the light is not too bright. For the audio, we recommend using headphones with audio, this sound is often much better than the sound that comes from a laptop.
→ We have extensively tested which software would suit us best. We tested a number of programs on connection strength, features and user friendliness. As far as we are concerned, Zoom came out on top by far.
