Virtual Classroom Design: Benefits at Every Level

The dramatic rise in remote work has shifted the business landscape, and we continue to see change as companies still define the future of work for their employees. Even though many have returned to the office, in many companies, workers are scattered around town, across the country, or even around the globe. Training is more important than ever for the new future of work.

Thanks to better internet connectivity and enhanced meeting platforms, online classrooms have undergone a major upgrade. Instructor led training (iLT) hasn’t been completely replaced by virtual instructor led training, or vILT. In fact, in the new future of work, many companies are utilizing one, the other, or a combination of both to achieve their training objectives.

Virtual tools abound, and much of the online learning experience is interactive. Breakout time, videos, on-screen annotation, participant voting, and real-time feedback keep things lively and engaging. Best of all, anyone anywhere can attend.

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that change, and uncertainty is never too far away. With increased working from home, and social distancing efforts in place, many of us have had to take our plans for training and development back to the drawing board - redesigning them to work virtually. 

Virtual Instructor Led Training (vILT) was new for some, but it provided many opportunities for businesses to continue with their learning and development plans, when traditional methods were not available. Over this transition, many have found that their virtual training didn’t go as smoothly as they had hoped - this is where a Virtual Producer comes in.

Why Every Virtual Training Session Needs a Virtual Training Producer

Posted by Rachael Jones on Jan 20, 2021 9:30:00 AM

Why Every Virtual Training Session Needs a Virtual Training Producer

The way we work and learn has drastically changed over the last 12 months. Instead of on-site education sessions, meetings, or conferences - organizations have moved to Virtual Instructor Led Training (vILT) to continue their learning initiatives. Companies and individuals save both time and money taking part in these virtual training sessions and allow them to continue learning in the ‘new normal’.

Of course, that's only if they were done properly. When poorly produced and maintained, these Virtual training sessions are not useful. In fact, they can be the subject of ridicule and anger from those who invested in them. The result is low engagement, and a program that fails, despite having the best of intentions.

So how do you fix it?
