2:30 pm – Converting Classroom Training to Virtual Training
Organizations are increasingly moving from instructor-led classroom training to the synchronous virtual classroom. However, one minute of classroom time does not equal one minute of virtual classroom time. And some face-to-face activities simply don’t translate or even make sense online. How do you know what to translate versus what to build from scratch, or what activity options are available that will help meet the desired learning outcomes?
This interactive session will explore the three simple steps you should follow when converting your traditional, in-person training classes into live online sessions.
