CCC - Activities for Virtual Learning with Kassy LaBorie
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 and passwords, getting the materials and slides ready for online viewing, and helping participants get connected, it’s no wonder we struggle to make live online training effective and engaging. We’ll focus on key areas and the specific tasks and strategies to help make you, your team, and your organization successful with online training.
