Our first online DITALS course was a totally new experience!
Following the Covid-19 emergency guidelines, we were not able to deliver our usual DITALS course in presence.
Therefore, we moved it online and chose Zoom as the best platform do to it.
Students from different cities could take part in the course and continue their training despite the lockdown.
The format of our course did not change: 4 sessions for the DITALS I preparation and an additional session for the DITALS II.
So for 5 Saturdays we met our students online, 3 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the afternoon and worked hard in different modes to prepare them towards the exam.
How did the course go?
Obviously there is a difference between a face-to-face and an online course: the different setting affects some group dynamics and forces people to reinvent lessons.
However, all the fantastic functions we could use on Zoom worked really well!
Students had the chance to work in small groups as well as all together with their teacher and share documents and ideas through the whiteboard.
What about the next steps?
If you are interested in the course and would like more information, join our online DITALS Workshop on the 25th September!
The workshop will take place on Zoom and will be a great chance to get all the useful information about the DITALS certification.
And we will be happy to answer all your questions about the course and the exam!
Wondering when will our next DITALS course start?
Considering the current uncertainty, at present we are not able to say if the course will be face-to-face or online as it will depend on the guideline about the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, you will find updated information on our website.
See you soon!
