We've moved on from the years that the classroom training was the only option for organisations. With the introduction of Virtual Classroom technology, teams that are geographically spread can now meet up online to connect, collaborate and learn. Many organisations are using this as part of their 21st century blended learning approach.
But using Virtual Classrooms isn't just a case of dumping content that was used in the face to face envrionment onto a platform with the hope that it has the same impact. Nor is it about producing Powerpoint led presentations that see the attendee listening for a long time to a one way presentation. There are techniques in engaging people online that are very different to face to face.
A couple of years ago, I caught up with Kassy LaBorie, a global Virtual Classroom expert at Dale Carnegie Digital, to find out what she had to say about introducing this approach into organisations. Below is a clip of what she had to say, giving you three tips to help you introduce Virtual Classrooms into any organisation.
If you're interesting in watching some good webinars and learning from the best, then I highly recommend you check out those from the Learning and Performance Institute as well as those from Training Journal.
