Remote Learning Environment
TLG utilizes cloud technologies to deliver courses to your home or office. During class you will:
- View the Instructor’s Presentation: Using Adobe Connect, you can see the instructor’s desktop as he or she steps you through demonstrations or displays PowerPoint presentations.
- Listen and Ask Questions: Using Adobe Connect, you can listen to the instructor, raise your hand, ask the instructor a question or send him or her an Instant Message to prompt a discussion.
- Hands-on Labs: Using GoToMyPC or virtualized labs you will have access to your own personal lab environment.
- Get Lab Help: The instructor is able to access to your lab session and take control if you need more help. You can watch and discuss what’s happening with the instructor.
During your class you will be utilizing a high-speed internet connection, headset, and 2-3 browser sessions to attend training; one for the instructor presentation, a second for viewing courseware (if applicable), and the third to access your hands-on labs. Typically, you will be managing two browser windows at a time; the instructor presentation and your courseware OR your courseware and lab session. The overwhelming feedback from our students is that a computer that supports two monitors or one computer for lecture and labs and one tablet for courseware is the preferred configuration.
In some cases, corporate firewalls may not allow the use of the Adobe Connect full client but that is usually remedied by using the Adobe Connect web client which provides all of the functionality needed to participate in class.
- Wired High-speed internet connection (DSL or better)
- Computer supporting two monitors or a computer and a tablet
- Wired USB Headset or Mic and Speakers recognized by Adobe Connect
