Learning a new skill has never been this easy and accessible, connecting teacher and student in real-time. All courses are online using our Virtual Classroom method.
Each course can have a course or subject community, which we encourage to meet offline and build stronger real-world local communities.

What are the benefits?
For you as a Student
Virtual Classrooms enable students and teachers to connect and have no physical boundaries:
- Teachers can guide you through learning activities or allow a self-paced approach.
- One-on-one with your teacher, depending on the course.
- Access to classmates and social interaction with peers within a Virtual Classroom and via your social media platform.
- You learn valuable remote working skills, which are increasingly important in modern workplaces.
How do I enroll in an online course?
Can I only learn online?
Through virtual classrooms, you and teachers can build skills highly valued by employers, such as digital literacy, remote working, problem solving and resilience.
Each course has a social group, meaning students can stay in touch even after completing their course—Building long-term relationships. We encourage teachers and students, where possible, to meet as a group at a physical location, for example, in a park, library or hired venue. This is not always possible. Hence we cater for online video conferencing and webinars.
Not all courses have a social media construction, known as Trade Shack groups; it requires a lot of administration for the teacher to set up a specific group for each course. For this reason, we recommend that a group per teacher is set up.
