Training made easy...In the Cloud


Attending a Virtual Classroom training session has never been easier than it is today. Using the latest in web conferencing and voice over IP (VOIP) technologies we have worked hard to provide the best in class for Virtual Classroom course delivery.

What is required:

  • A high speed Internet connection.
    Note: Sometimes in office environments firewalls used for internet security prevent those connections from being made.
  • Computer, a tablet or both.
    • Option 1: One computer with two monitors.
      This allows you to view the instructor on one machine and work with your system on the other screen.
    • Option 2: Two computers.
      This is ideal for a workstation and laptop setup which will be used for viewing on one machine and working with your system on the other computer.
    • Option 3: One computer and tablet/iPad.
      This is a great option if you have a tablet or iPad. You can connect to the instructor’s presentation via the iPad/tablet device and use your computer for working your environment. You can even use the audio from the iPad/tablet for participating in the session.
    • Option 4: One computer.
      This option is for the student that is comfortable with toggling back and forth during the lecture/presentation/demo and your environment.
  • A speaker phone or hands-free headset for your telephone/device.
    Because you’ll be using the keyboard and mouse throughout the class, you will need a speakerphone or headset by your computer.
  • VOIP or Unlimited long-distance phone service.
    You can use the GotoMeeting microphone and speaker option, or using Skype is a good option. You can also call in using your Unlimited long-distance calling plan (if you have one).


The set up is easy, but you will often need your own software. 
You will need your own software and setup before attending the training session. Each course is different, so we encourage you to work with a COD representative to determine your needs before attending. Contact us if you need a virtual training lab.

Virtual Classroom Meeting Software (GotoMeeting)
You will need to test your device and install the GotoMeeting software before attending.

Test Your Connection.


Install GotoMeeting™ on the computer or device you're using to join the training session.
