Human Resources is offering virtual learning opportunities for your convenience and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. The courses are presented using Zoom or Microsoft Teams virtual platforms.
What is a virtual course?
A virtual course is held online instead of face-to-face in a classroom. You can participate using a computer/laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
How do I register?
Register for the course using OPUS to request approval from your supervisor, just as you would for an in-person course. View the OPUS Registration Quick Reference or the OPUS Registration Step-by-Step Guide.
How do I attend the course?
After registering in OPUS, Organizational & Talent Development will send you a confirmation email approximately one week before the course date. At the designated time, log in on your computer or mobile device using the link in the email. If using a telephone for audio functions, dial one of the toll-free telephone numbers provided in the same email.
Do I have to download special software to attend a course?
Do I need a Zoom account to attend a virtual course?
No. Participants are not required to have an account.
What if I don't know how to use Zoom?Here are some options to quickly familiarize yourself with Zoom:
Do I need a camera?
No. A camera is optional, but not required.
Do I need a microphone?
Can I participate by phone?
How do I prepare for a virtual course?
You will get an email with the course materials link and online link approximately one week before your scheduled course. You will be unable to access the course without this email information.
Are virtual courses recorded?
No. Each virtual course offers participant interaction and engagement activities that are unique every time the course is offered. Not recording a course also allows for more open and honest communication between participants and the instructor. There are some lecture only webinars available, which are recorded.
Can a group of employees participate together in a virtual course?
No. This learning opportunity is not a webinar and should not be accessed as a group. The course activities are meant to provide individualized learning and participation.
