VLT – How Does It Work?

You’re probably familiar with web conferencing software that lets you meet and collaborate with colleagues in different locations. The same kind of software is used in delivering our VLT classes. Internet conferencing technology lets you to see what is happening on the instructor’s PC as they demonstrate how to use the course software. It’s also used to transmit other aspects of the instructor’s presentation such as PowerPoint slides, whiteboard work, and the instructor’s image on the web camera.

Attend Class From Your Home or Office

In most circumstances, it’s possible to attend one of our VLT classes from a location outside of our training centers such as your home or office. If participating from your home or office is right for you, we’ll provide you with all the information you need to get set up for your class. Typical setup time is less than 20 minutes — that’s time you’ll get back by not having to commute to the class! Another major advantage of attending class from home is 24/7 access to class labs.

At a minimum, you’ll need the following components:

  • A high speed Internet connection (DSL or faster)
  • A hands-free headset with head piece and microphone or a standalone microphone and computer speakers

*If available, an additional computer or monitor may be used so that you can see the broadcast of the instructor presentation alongside of the classroom image that you’ll be working on to perform the exercises and labs
