Working in a Virtual Environment

Working in a Virtual Environment

Predictions are that the work environment of the future will not be an office in a building owned by a company, but work will be dispersed in people’s homes. With technological advances and lower costs for the technology, the work can be done from anywhere, creating a new team dynamic. This practical and interactive course provides real-world tools to bring together a virtual group of people.
