In education via creative on-line courses
Helen Joy of ‘Right Brain Genius’ in Cairns believes fast broadband would “fill the gap” to make online service provision to remote and regional areas practical and profitable for a small operator. Advances in online training platforms such as Learning Management Systems (LMS) and Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) make the technology available for a virtual classroom to deliver on-line, real time streaming of classes. This has many potential benefits to the business, including
- Ability to deliver training to communities in remote areas;
- More efficient use of time to reach a greater number of students;
- Cost effective and practical platform for delivery of train-the-training courses across Australia and internationally; and,
- Keeps the prices of the course low making it more accessible to under-privileged communities.
