Basic Definitions

What are virtual training opportunities?

Virtual training refers to training done in a virtual or simulated environment or in cases that the learner and the instructor are in separate locations.
Virtual training can be done:

  • Synchronously (for ex. Classes scheduled in real time)
  • Asynchronously (for ex. Classes with relaxed schedule where students might be able to work wherever and wherever they can)

Virtual training and virtual training environments are designed to simulate the traditional classroom or learning experience.

What is a virtual course?

Virtual course means a course of study that is capable of generating a credit or a grade and that is provided in an interactive learning environment where the majority of the curriculum is delivered using the internet and in which pupils may be separated from their instructor or teacher of record by time or location, or both. (via: www.lawinsider.com)

What is a virtual seminar?

A virtual seminar is a seminar delivered online with a live instructor. The instructor and attendees communicate with each other as if they were in the same room. Also called a “Webinar”, virtual seminars tend to be replicas of classroom workshops, whereas the Webinar is often a short presentation with limited participation. (via: www.yourdictionary.com)
