  • Is a Webinar really useful? Is it like a YouTube video?

    A webinar is even better than a traditional classroom course as webinars have an even higher engagement from participants who are not restricted by group pressure or lack of time to ask questions that are relevant to their personal situation, as you can do it online or even after the course via e-mail to the same trainer.

    The slides are shown with live explanations, and if you wish to put a question on their content, you can do so easily via chat. You are also requested to take part in the interactive exercises to make sure your learning is maximised.

    You can even watch the recorded event afterwards to refresh the content or in case you missed the course - something that you could never do in a traditional classroom setting.

    Finally, you don't need to waste time and money with travelling to the course location as you can participate from the convenience of your office or home via your computer.

  • What is a 'Webinar'? Why do you say it's 'LIVE'?

    A webinar is the abbreviation of Web Seminar. This means that you can simply log on to a special webpage (the address is provided to paid-up participants before the event) where you are connected to a special platform.

    It is LIVE because the tutor is presenting methods and information in a live broadcast that you can immediately see and hear on your computer screen and speakers.

    When he turns a page on his PowerPoint presentation, it is shown on your screen. When he asks you to answer a question or a poll, you can chat LIVE or click on a button to provide feedback. It is fully interactive, even more than a traditional classroom course where the teacher may only provide one-way communication.

Packages and tests

  • Are the online tests similar to the ones SHL, Kenexa and other test administrators require candidates to take? How do their difficulty level relate to the "real" ones?
