BrainStation, a technology skills school with five locations in North America, has expanded and updated its remote learning platform, making it more available to West Coast and Atlantic-based students.

“Online Live is helping to decentralize and democratize digital skills and workforce transformation.”

Online Live is an instructor-led data training platform that allows students to attend live lectures, collaborate with other professionals, and get immediate feedback from expert instructors. The latest version of the platform aims to improve its intuitiveness and encourage real-time collaboration and feedback for students. Its live, instructor-led digital skills training is now also available for students in Pacific and Atlantic Standard time.

“Online Live was first introduced on the East Coast, with world-class instructors broadcasting industry-leading content out of our learning studios,” said Jason Field, BrainStation’s founder and CEO. “Since then, it has resulted in more than 100,000 hours of live learning for thousands of professionals across 50 cities and 27 states, provinces, and territories.”
