Because of tightening travel budgets and the displaced nature of today’s workforce, virtual training is becoming more important during software rollouts. For software manufacturers, virtual instructor-led training can be a very effective delivery method. Converting existing in-person-led software training into virtual instructor-led software training includes converting the lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises for virtual delivery. The converted sessions must be engaging, it must be easy for students to get help, and knowledgeable instructors are needed to teach the sessions. Session participants will get a good idea of what it takes to convert classes for virtual delivery.

Participants in this case-study session will get the details of what Altair Engineering has learned in converting existing classes into virtual instructor-led classes. You’ll learn how they used trial classes to become successful at converting classes for virtual delivery and you’ll learn the steps to go through to make a successful conversion.

In this session, you will learn:
  • How to effectively manage virtual training sessions
  • The steps necessary to convert an in-person class for virtual delivery
  • The pitfalls in converting the class material
  • How to track the progress of students through the hands-on exercise in a virtual environment
  • The appropriate length for class sessions per day
Audience: Intermediate designers, developers, instructors, and others familiar with the development and execution of an in-person instructor-led class. Some experience with instructor-led virtual classes will be beneficial, but is not necessary.
