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 programme that Learnit uses for this is Zoom.
To learn more about how this programme 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 obligatory but is recommended. If you cannot or do not want to download the programme, we recommend that you participate in the training via Google Chrome.
→ 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. In addition, we only ask you for the most necessary data; the name that appears on the screen and the e-mail address to which the invitation to the meeting is sent. In this way we try to guarantee your privacy. For further questions or concerns about privacy we can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recommend that you 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 programmes on connection strength, possibilities and user-friendliness. As far as we were concerned, Zoom was by far the best.
