How Attend from Anywhere works

Our ‘Attend from Anywhere’ courses allow you to access award-winning classroom training without leaving your home or office. We use WebEx web and video conferencing platform by Cisco. Before you book you should check to ensure you meet the WebEx system requirements and run a test meeting to ensure the software is compatible with your firewall settings (if it doesn’t work you should adjust your settings or contact your IT department about permitting the website).

  • Up to three weeks before the start of the course we will send you Joining Instructions by email.
  • You should enter ‘My Virtual Account’ to update your address for courseware and book a pre-test with a member of the Virtual Learning Team, who will check everything works.
  • 15 minutes before the course begins you should launch the software, connect your audio and familiarise yourself with the interface and how the virtual interactions work.
  • The course will be split into multiple sessions, with short breaks in between so you can stay focused and refreshed.
  • Throughout the course the learning professional will use an electronic whiteboard, which will transmit all the notes directly to your screen.
  • You can ask the learning professional a question at any time, either by simply speaking aloud through your microphone or by clicking the virtual ‘raise-a-hand’ button on the interface.
  • Towards the end of the course there will be plenty of time for detailed Q&As with the learning professional, just as if you were physically in the classroom.
  • Following the course you will be asked to complete a course evaluation form, which will allow you to give detailed feedback on your experience and help us to make future improvements.
  • For four weeks after the course has finished you will have on-demand access to helpful videos on the subject matter, and we may send you useful emails reminding you of the ‘Key Learning Points’.
