FORS has launched a new virtual classroom to provide its members with a more classroom-like training environment.
It enables attendees able to see each other and the trainer during the live session and also features an embedded assessment at the end of each webinar, to verify that the learning objectives have been met.
The FORS Professional Virtual Classroom has been set up following the decision by FORS that delivery of all its manager training will remain online for the foreseeable future.
On April 1, FORS moved all its manager training to online learning following the Covid-19 restrictions imposed a couple of weeks previously which prevented face-to-face training.
FORS manager Sonia Hayward, said: “At the beginning of the lockdown in spring, we moved all FORS Professional manager training courses online to make sure our members could continue their professional development remotely.
“However, we wanted to offer a more ‘classroom-like’ experience, so we developed the new Virtual Classroom to make sure that the learners benefit from a more engaging training experience.”
FORS also launched a dedicated FORS Professional booking platform to simplify the booking process for its members. Both platforms demonstrate the commitment to the professional development of FORS members during this time.
Hayward added: “Providing FORS members with webinar-based training long-term means they can access the learning they need to meet the requirements of FORS with minimum disruption to their working day. Webinars carry a reduced environmental impact as they do not require travel, allowing members and trainers to remain safe, while social distancing measures remain.”
