Join me on Wednesday October 10 at 2pm Eastern to learn what goes on behind the scenes of live online training events! Steve Sheehan and I will be “peeling back the curtain” to look at what it takes to run a successful session. We’ll cover the producer’s role, how to partner together with co-facilitators, how to multi-task with ease, and how to use the tools to create seamless experiences for your learners.
PS Let me know in the comments if you have any burning questions that you’d like to see answered!
I have been conducting 8-hour virtual training for ERP (software) product. I have difficulty getting the group to participate as times go on. It is also difficult for the trainer to keep the energy level. Sometimes, I have the same group of people for 5 days 8-hour per course. Any suggestion or comment that you can help?
8 hours of continuous virtual training is a long time, especially for 5 days in a row! You might want to re-consider the design of this class and turn it into a blended solution. Go back to the specific learning objectives. Which of those objectives can the learners do on their own? Could they read a reference guide or watch a demonstration video, and then come to the synchronous class with their questions and to practice? Each component is still meaningful to the learning however not all of it is together in the virtual classroom. If you break down the learning into smaller chunks of time, combining both asynchronous and synchronous activities, you will probably have much better engagement during the synchronous sessions. Hope this helps!
