Instructor-Led Training Now Available via Video at more Than Two Dozen ESRI Learning Centers in the United States
-- Video-recorded training at all ESRI learning centers in the United States -- Video teleconferencing training at the ESRI learning centers -- Virtual Classroom online training delivered to students' own workplaces or home computers
Instructor-Led Video-Assisted Classroom Training ( www.esri.com/videotraining) provides convenient access to a wide variety of courses taught by qualified ESRI instructors via video. Students can watch video-recorded lectures and demonstrations and complete hands-on software exercises at their own pace. They can review course materials on their own and repeat the lectures or the exercises as time permits. An ESRI instructor with expertise in the subject matter is in the classroom at all times to answer questions, explain concepts, and provide guidance.
Instructor-Led Remote Classroom Training ( www.esri.com/remotetraining) uses two-way, interactive video-teleconferencing technology. This lets students attend instructor-led training classes remotely from a local ESRI learning center, select ESRI satellite locations, or any location within their own organizations that has compatible video-teleconferencing equipment.
The classes are broadcast from an ESRI location in the United States to one or two remote locations. Students in the remote locations can see and hear the instructor lecture as well as speak with other students, ask questions, and share GIS knowledge. The instructor can see students' computer screens and provide remote assistance with class exercises.
Instructor-Led Virtual Classroom Training ( www.esri.com/virtualclassroom) offers online training delivered in real time via the Internet and telephone conferencing technology. Students take the training from their desktop or laptop computer, either at work or at home.
