Learning a new skill online usually feels impersonal, because you're listening, practicing, and adjusting by yourself. Webucator, on the other hand, immerses its students in a true classroom environment—even though all of them might be sitting at home with their laptops. Its course offerings focus on technologies, programming languages, and business skills, encompassing everything from Adobe InDesign tips to sales and marketing strategies.
During public virtual courses, instructors teach in realtime by mirroring their display on the student's computer. The connection goes both ways: as students participate in exercises, they can grant the instructor access to their screen display, and receive close guidance. Students wear headsets that were mailed to them upon their registration, so asking questions and pretending to be an airplane pilot are encouraged. Classes are also reliable—they cannot be canceled due to low enrollment.
Webucator's self-paced classes, written by the same instructors as the live seminars, also strive toward interactivity. Their lessons and quizzes are accessible at any time, and help students to monitor their progress throughout the training.
