Yes.  You log on to their virtual classroom and hear the lecture and see the slides, there is a chat room, but they can’t see or hear you.  (It is live not pre-recorded).

You need to register (see below) and then choose your course.  The full course list and timetable is below too.  They last about 90 minutes, and are very accessible.

I’ve done two courses on Media Relations and SEO and they were both excellent.
