Running a virtual classroom online

Are you looking at running virtual classes online or virtual training sessions?

One great advantage of virtual classrooms is you don’t have to teach them live. You can pre-record all the training sessions and set them up online for your customers to access when they are ready.

What do you need to run a class online?

– A website or online platform for your class – this will give your customers a place to find and access all the content

– A way customers can sign up to your classes

– A way you can stay in touch with people taking your class/course – such as email or a Facebook Group

You can show pre-recorded videos via a log in that are streamed from a private link to YouTube or Vimeo.  You can also do weekly, or daily Zoom live video sessions.

If you have any questions or would like to chat about what options would work for your business, please feel free to get in touch with us.
