Businesses Choose WebEx for Learning English Online and More Engaging Classroom Experience, TalktoCanada Reports
WebEx is becoming the conference system of choice as businesses send staff to learn English online; the system is praised for its interactive classroom environment
OTTAWA, Ontario, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TalktoCanada, the company trusted by Ernst & Young, Novartis and Saudi Telecom for English language training, is reporting an increased demand for WebEx-based classes in 2011.
Already a staple of modern meeting culture, corporations are quick to embrace WebEx as also a classroom tool. Among the features that amplify the online English training experience the most popular include a whiteboard, annotating options and recording and playback technology.
"WebEx is already widely used within the global business community for video conferencing and meetings, making it an ideal application to also use as a teaching platform. Because both teachers and students are comfortable with WebEx, TalktoCanada is able to implement online English classes with new and existing clients with limited ramp-up time," explains Marc Anderson, Managing Director of TalktoCanada.
TalktoCanada has been providing online English language training since 2006, in the wake of the VOIP telephony revolution. Since then, many individual students and corporations around the world have learned English online with TalktoCanada over Skype, a software with a primary function to make VOIP calls between computers.
Skype will continue to be used as a communication tool for TalktoCanada in one-to-one person communication, while taking full advantage of the conference and classroom environment permitted by WebEx for teaching, including the engagement of larger groups.
"WebEx will play a critical role for TalktoCanada as companies look for an interactive educational platform that allows more than just talk or chat. Working with WebEx will also allow us to better support the needs of our growing customer base in a stable and reliable environment. We're excited to provide great English training to customers around the world," says Anderson.
TalktoCanada was established in 2006 and provides best-in-class English training courses online. The company has trained students from over 80 countries, including Fortune 500 companies such as Ernst & Young, Novartis and Fidelity Investments. TalktoCanada partners with Systems OnLine for all training in the Middle East.
