Live Virtual Classroom
We deliver training courses using our Live Virtual Classroom (LVC), both public (open to anyone to attend) and privately on a date and time arranged at your convenience. They are designed to allow people geographically distributed to be trained simultaneously.
We have been delivering Agile courses using Live Virtual Classrooms for over half a decade to global organisations with distributed teams. Delegates receive a traditional classroom experience using Live Virtual Classrooms with an experienced practitioner without spending time and money on travel.
Benefits of LVC training include:
- Convenient – courses are delivered anytime, anywhere, making training more accessible.
- Cost-effective – eliminates travel and accommodation costs.
- Environmentally less impact – reducing the carbon footprint by eliminating travel.
- Team collaboration – dispersed teams can interact with one another in a group environment, discussing real world organisational examples and challenges.
With our approach to Live Virtual Classroom training, we seek to combine the technical possibilities of working online with the personal connections established in face-to-face training. All of our courses put a strong emphasis on group activities, whether building real class projects or participating in group exercises. Here are some examples:
Class interaction and discussion (all courses)
All of our courses feature a mixture of the group exercises above, plus whole-class discussion. These interactions are supported by
- Realtime “yes / no” questions for the whole group, followed up with individual discussions from each side of the argument
Building a class project:
Teams work together to build a real website using a Scrum simulation to plan and review their work. Online breakout rooms are combined with realtime whiteboards to create a collaborative experience. Teams are able to share their screens to present their work back to the class.
Remote group analysis:
Teams work through a scenario to describe the intended functionality of new features, working in small groups with shared screens in an online breakout session. This is relatively tool-agnostic, meaning that delegates may use whatever tools they currently use and then discuss the merits or issues as they feedback to the class.
Learning to use an online tool:
Distributed teams working across different locations and timezones often rely on tools such as Jira to co-ordinate their work. In our online Jira training courses, teams learn by doing in exactly the same environment they will be using after the course.
