Our upcoming program delivers the courses on-line via the CARMA Global Virtual Classroom using Zoom. Courses offered through the Global Virtual Classroom will use a synchronous approach, with instructors providing live (video and audio) lecture and Q&A sessions. Instructors will also lead assignment sessions, during which participants can choose to join breakout rooms to collaborate with a small group of course-mates (using screen-share, video/audio communication, and/or text chat.
Our goal with our on-line approach is to emulate as much as possible the in-person short course experience that we have used so successfully since 2001. We hope our on-line delivery will be more practical and economical for participants by allowing them to avoiding travel to locations beyond their community. Training for participants not familiar with use of Zoom will be provided at no-charge prior to the Short Courses. CARMA has considerable experience with live on-line events. We look forward to extending our use of this delivery format through our Virtual Global Classroom to increase access to our highly-regarded Short Courses and Webcast Lectures.
