Virtual Courses

Introducing Virtual Classes:
Virtual Classes are self-study versions of some of IBM's most popular courses delivered over the Internet combining web-based reading assignments, multimedia presentations, interactive real-time chats with an instructor and other students via instant messaging, and quizzes with instructor feedback. Offering, in addition, hands-on lab sessions with Interactive remote Instructor support and mentoring to assist the learners in the lab sessions. These offer all the advantages of self-paced learning with the Instructor support normally only available in classroom courses.

Once enrolled the student will be issued an ID to access the web based training and has up to 90 days in which to complete the course.

Virtual Class courses are identified by course codes where the 5th digit is the number 7:
e.g. WF387GB is the Virtual Class equivalent of our classroom course WF381GB -WebSphere Administration.

These offerings are available at significant discount off IBM's normal classroom prices and therefore are not available via the education card or other discount schemes.
