How Do We Capture Classroom Collaboration, Virtually?

May 28, 2024 | 11 AM EDT | 60 Mins

How do we reduce distractions, isolation, and screen fatigue in our virtual classrooms? How do we maximize participation and teamwork?

A virtual classroom can be much more than a webinar, facilitating many-to-many communication. However, designing content and activities for the virtual space is challenging.

This webinar offers practical guidelines on tailoring virtual instructor-led training (VILT) sessions to enable human interaction. It will guide learning architects and designers on how to:

  • Design instructional material
  • Select the right technology platform
  • Use suitable collaboration activities

VILT can leverage multiple modalities to engage learners and transfer knowledge. However, new users and introverts might find it intimidating. Activities can go haywire for both participants and the facilitator.

Despite challenges, opportunities do abound for learning designers looking to increase the reach of training. Getting learners from different locations and time zones to learn new skills is economical and scalable. Groups can be sustained even after the session so that learners get to interact, and exchange notes, solutions, success stories.

So, the question to be answered is – how do we leverage the challenges and opportunities with VILT, for corporate training?

Join the interactive webinar to revamp your virtual training sessions, with proven insights into:
  • Converting challenges to opportunities in designing VILT
  • Designing different formats of instructional material
  • Maximizing engagement with collaborative activities:
    • Polls
    • Breakouts
    • Annotations
    • Worksheets
  • Getting started with the proven best practices and tips
  • Following a streamlined conversion process
