- vClass - Virtual classes
Online training has become a widely accepted and highly effective way of getting up to speed with new tools and information, or getting up to speed with the latest developments. Whether self-paced, as with EnCase OnDemand training courses, or with our latest offering, streaming vClass training, the time and budget efficiencies are undeniable.
Virtual classroom lets you take live EnCase courses anywhere
vClass training brings the live classroom experience to a screen near you. EnCase vClass training streams live from our classrooms where we have trained over 80,000 students, and are led by the same instructional team that has been so successful in helping our students begin, succeed, and become leaders in the world of digital investigations. Developed and delivered by real-world digital investigators, our courses offer hands-on use of the EnCase product suite and deliver a solid and practical understanding of the methodology and skills needed to succeed in digital investigations of all types.
Live instructor desktop view and live EnCase access
More than just a video broadcast, our vClass training lets you see the instructor's desktop live as he or she delivers the training content. vClass training also offers remote access to a computer running EnCase, while our online proctors standby to address your questions. Using Smart Board (whiteboard) technology, the industry standard online learning software, as well as a dedicated computer for each student, vClass training can transform whatever seat you're sitting in into a classroom chair.
