In Australia we have the luxury of space and in the case of organising local training courses this unfortunately works against us. Running partner training courses - even when run as "not-for-profit" - still requires 4 to 5 students per class and sometimes this can be difficult to achieve.
Who has attended virtual live classrooms in the past (possibly with other vendors and training units) and what was your experience?
Do they work? What are the downfalls? What doesn’t work?
I can see a challenge for the instructor: to engage his audience, when (s)he cannot visually confirm that students are awake and focused.
