about GLA

At a scheduled time, all the learners, who are signed up for the class, login to the classroom on their computer.

At the same time, the class instructor also logs into the classroom. Using the computer’s keyboard, speakers, microphone and screen, each participant can talk, text chat, view and work together on a whiteboard.
Live Classes usually last 2-hours and can range from 1 to 6 sessions.

Learners taking a Live Class use an online system called Saba. Here’s a video introduction to Saba.

For all new learners, Good Learning Anywhere offers a 2-hour LIVE course called “Introduction to Saba” that offers a chance to practice using the Saba tools.
