Remote training courses (live Instructor-led online) are taught by an instructor one-to-one or with a small number of people (usually 4, typically up to 8).
- Participants and the trainer interact with each using virtual desktops and video calls.
- Most courses are exactly the same as their classroom equivalent, including the course duration, content and student materials.
- In the case of computer courses, each participant has their own remote desktop where they can perform exercises with the assistance of the trainer.
- It is very often a more efficient way of teaching than traditional classroom.
