Virtual Classroom for regional and remote students
virtual classroom consists of an actual classroom with a facilitator teaching
the class to students who are either in the classroom with the facilitator or
dialled in remotely to the class session. Presentation slides and other digital
files can be presented during the training session using the Zoom platform and
the student may either focus on these resources or the facilitator. The class
can also view the students who are remotely dialled into the class session and
can interact with them in the same manner as in a classroom.
students located in the same city or town as the facilitator, we recommend they
attend the classroom with the facilitator, and those who are located outside of
the actual classroom to form their own groups in the same city or town and then
remote into the virtual classroom together from the same physical location,
e.g. meeting room or training room.
physical location will require the following set-up:
Sufficient internet connection – Zoom is successful on a 4G network. Any
network better than 4G will enhance the student’s experience;
- A PC
with a web-camera, microphone and the capacity to run the Zoom application to
allow the facilitator to better interact with students in the same manner as a
traditional classroom; and
Sufficient sized monitor or screen to support the number of students in the
Zoom Room to allow the greatest outreach of students and to provide another
avenue for people wanting to undertake training without the excessive cost of
flights and accommodation necessary to send a person to a capital city to
undertake face-to-face training. We use this technology to help those in remote
locations who would normally miss out on further education because they are
unable to either fund or access the training they need to perform their work
an extra fee for this option - $150.00 (incl. GST) per day, per location. This
fee covers all remote students for the day, in the one location. We can allow a
maximum of 3 remote students per course. Please be aware that Learning via
distance using live stream will place greater expectations on the trainee to
engage and actively participate in the learning. If you are interested in this
option, please contact IPAA NSW on (02) 8066 1900.
