East India Free Webinar April 2016

Posted on Saturday, April 2, 2016

The Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers-East India branch conducted a free Webinar for the students appearing in April 2016 Examinations.

This was the second online exercise from ICS East India Branch - the first online tuition free event had been held last October. 
The East India branch used to conduct classroom sessions prior to 2015 - these had their limitations and therefore the branch decided to experiment the on line option.
The webinar had been set up to encourage active learning through the live chats and discussions.  
The Tuition was conducted via the website: www.gotomeeting.com
