Have you been considering studying a Diploma in Virtual Reality with Redmako? Are you concerned about the online learning experience or perhaps the cost of the course? We recently interviewed two of our Diploma Graduates one school-based trainee and one non-school based trainee about how they found studying with Redmako in Virtual Reality.
These are their stories.
What course did you study with Redmako and why did you choose that one?
I am studying the Diploma of Social Media Marketing. I chose this course as I was looking for a fresh perspective. At the time, I’d been made redundant, and I was looking for ways to pursue my dream of starting my own freelance writing business. I was hitting Google hard looking for ways to get things started, and I came across this course. Given that everything is online these days, it made complete sense that I needed to do this course for me to turn my dream into a reality.
What is your current role and what does your work entail?
I work for an Accountant who specialises in Self-Managed Super Funds. I do the administration support tasks.
Has your job changed since you completed the course?
It hasn’t. I plan to continue working part-time while I work on setting up my business.
If not has completing the course helped you do your job better or have other opportunities arisen for you as a result of completing your course?
In talking to my friends and family with businesses, I have discovered that I have skills and particularly knowledge of things that people want to know. Many small business owners are aware that they need to build a social media presence but don’t know how to go about it. Others get as far as starting a Facebook page and leave it there. I am excited that I now have so much insight into the opportunities that await small business owners.
Did you enjoy studying with Redmako in VR? What was the best part of studying in VR?
I loved the ability to study using Redmako’s VR classes. The fact that I could put my goggles on and be sitting in a class with fellow students and taught by industry-leading marketing and business consultants from my Mallee Victorian home is beyond belief. I’ve completed several online courses, and the Redmako experience has been the most enriching. I feel like I know my teachers and fellow students. What’s best, I haven’t had to leave home or disrupt my family to do it.
Any final comments on studying this course with Redmako in VR?
I want to congratulate Redmako Learning on offering the best online learning environment. Choosing to study with you has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Everything you do is well done; from student support with Roumel through to the VR classes with Rudi and Megan. When I first enrolled, I had the usual hesitations: Will this course be as good as they tell me it is? Is it worth the money that I have committed? Will the VR sessions be a gimmick? Thankfully, all my reservations were proven wrong, very wrong. I am pleased to say that everything offered through the course is first class. The learning material is interactive and exciting. In fact, at times, it’s like a good book that you don’t want to put down! The VR sessions exceeded my expectations. And finally the big one, the course is excellent value for money. Having access to Rudi’s knowledge and experience is invaluable, and the fact that he’s willing to share so much, additionally through the Facebook page is priceless.
You’ve probably gathered that I am a delighted student! I am so happy to say that I made the right decision in choosing Redmako. The goal I have in starting my own freelance business is a challenging one, and it will be a while before I’m celebrating my success. However, today I’m celebrating almost completing this course and all the excellent skills and knowledge I have acquired in the last 12 months.
