I was amazed at the capability of the virtual environment. I would have never believed it could replace or enhance classroom training!

It was excellent! It was great to build rapport with the other learners via the virtual environment; it felt like we knew each other by the end of the week! It also opened my eyes to how useful the virtual environment can be, and that it can be just as beneficial as in-person training.
