Delivered in Virtual Reality (VR), Redmako Learning’s Diploma of Social Media Marketing (10118NAT) provides a unique way to study. VR pairs the convenience of online study, with the support and community of face to face classroom training. This is truly a cutting-edge way to learn!

If you’ve ever enrolled in an online course, you’ll appreciate that one of the greatest challenges is the self-motivation and accountability towards logging-on to study. It can also be very LONELY with no-one to collaborate with or talk to. Conversely, if you’ve recognized this struggle and sought out classroom training opportunities so that you’ve got the accountability to show up to your scheduled classes, you know this option ‘aint all roses either! Commuting to classes can be painful: bad traffic, bad weather and a waste of time with a 1-hour class potentially taking 3 hours out of your day to commute to and from!

Studying in Virtual Reality is different. You can stay at home in your pyjamas or be at the office in between meetings – all that you need to do is pop on your VR headset at the scheduled time of your class. You’ll then be teleported into your Diploma of Business class, where your Trainer will be waiting for you and the balance of your classmates will join too.

Your Trainer chooses the virtual classroom you’ll meet in for each class, hence maybe you’ll meet in a lecture theatre or perhaps in a boardroom or even in outer space! You’ll have a lot of control about how you can interact in the class too, you can choose who you want to sit next to, ask questions of your trainer, whisper to your classmate sitting next to you, take audio notes or screenshots of content and much more. But learning in a virtual classroom, isn’t just like a normal classroom – it’s better! In our Diploma of Business, the Trainer won’t just talk about the content – they’ll show you via teleporting you across the World to varying locations OR using the holoprojector within your class to display large 3D holograms in the middle of the classroom to help bring concepts to life.

Sound good, but worried you can’t join because you don’t have a VR headset? Don’t worry, tuition fees for Redmako Learning’s Diploma of Social Media Marketing INCLUDE a brand-new Oculus GO VR headset!
