Wedemic is an online marketplace for education and training courses.
There are 2 main types of courses; 1) In-Person Courses, and 2) Online Courses.
An In-Person Course is delivered face-to-face. An In-Person Course can be a public course / scheduled course/ open course, or it can be an In-House course.
An open course / scheduled course / open course, is ran on a specified date and location. It is open to public enrollment. Most instructors and training organizers often schedule their courses in advance of 3 to 12 months of the course dates.
An In-House course is delivered to a closed group of participants. Usually this takes place at the client's office premise, or an off-site location of their choice e.g. hotel training room. Most instructors are able to deliver an In-House course with certain degree of customization. Usually an in-house option can be considered a more cost effective approach for companies looking to train a larger group of employees.
An Online Course is delivered entirely through online with no in-person elements involved. This can be in the form of video tutorials, assignments, materials study, quiz, and/or an examination.
An Online Course can be completed in a matter of hours, or for a few months. The flexibility of an Online Course is the main attraction to most professionals today as it allows the freedom to learn whatever, whenever and wherever. Students of an Online Course usually also have the connection to a large global community of students also undertaking the course to exchange views and opinions.
