5 Keys for Effective Virtual Classroom Training

April 10, 2020 • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Whatever name we have given it—online training, virtual instructor-led training, or synchronous training, to list just a few—it’s still us conducting live training with real people using computers, headsets, microphones, Internet, and an online meeting platform like Zoom, WebEx, or Adobe Connect. And it’s not as easy as we would all like it to be, even during the best of times. With tasks such as sorting out logins credentials and passwords, getting the materials and slides ready for online viewing, and helping participants connect, it’s no wonder we struggle to make live online training effective and engaging. We’ll focus on five key areas and the specific tasks and strategies to help make you, your team, and your organization successful with online training.

During this webcast, learn leading practices for creating and delivering effective and engaging online training by:

• mastering the online training technology
• preparing trainers to deliver virtually
• enabling instructional designers to create materials
• leveraging a producer for technical support
• preparing attendees to learn online.
