Many of us are already using virtual classrooms to complement support our organisations learning strategies. If you're not already the chances are you will in the future as more and more organisations tune into this to complement what's already done. Whether it's to support face to face learning, offer bite sized sessions or simply just to collaborate with teams the benefits of reduced cost and time cannot be ignored.

Whilst many of the skills we use in real life translate well to the virtual classroom, it is a totally different environment. Many fall foul to just settling for dumping Powerpoint presentations into the online platform without taking advantage of the various ways to help learners to interact and stay engaged.

So here's a few resources that will help you develop your skills in this area that I'm sure you will find useful....

Podcast - Three tips to Introduce Virtual Classrooms - A ten minute interview podcast with Kassy LaBorie

Learning and Performance Institute - Webinar events and recordings

The Webinar Pocketbook - A book by Andy Lancaster and Stella Collins

Interact and Engage: 50 Activities for Virtual Training, Meetings and Webinar - A book by Kassy LaBorie and Tom Stone

And if you want an amusing take on a Real Life Video Conference, take a look at the video below from video and web conferencing service Zoom.
