Is there a difference between a UMAT Classroom Course and a UMAT Live Online Course?

The obvious difference between the two courses is that if you opt for a Live Online course, you won't physically be joining your teacher in a classroom. However, the online classroom that you will join allows you to see your teacher through a webcam, chat with other students, watch as your teacher illustrates answers to questions, and ask any questions you might have. Everything else between the two courses is exactly the same.

How does UMAT Live Online work?

Using Adobe Connect Software, our virtual classroom allows you to receive all the benefits of a live classroom course, but from home! You won't need to install any software. When you join the virtual classroom, your teacher will encourage you to run the audio wizard to ensure that everything is set up correctly. We'll send your course materials to you through the post (unless ebook option is selected), so the only thing required for the course is internet access, and a computer with speakers or a headset so that you can hear your teacher.

What will I see on my screen when I am in the virtual classroom?

The virtual classroom has a number of features, so the layout of the screen will change according to what the teacher is reviewing. Features include presentation slides (which correspond with your course materials), UMAT questions, a question-and-answer box, chat areas, online polls and an onscreen whiteboard which the instructor will write on just like in a “real” classroom.
