Converting existing ILT courses to virtual classroom sessions is not a one-to-one conversion, and the level of effort is often underestimated. The learning environment itself can even be a distractor, unlike traditional classrooms. Successful conversion of traditional ILT to V-ILT requires several things: familiarity with the virtual classroom-learning environment, a deep understanding of learning models and adult-learning principles, resourceful thinking around delivery models, and fluency in instructional design

Participants in this case study session will learn about the challenges of conversion. You’ll explore V-ILT delivery with an eye to how the virtual classroom framework affects their instructional design choices. You will see good V-ILT design demonstrated in a live virtual classroom, hear about key best practices in design and delivery, get a better understanding of the challenges of converting ILT to V-ILT, and learn the importance of dedicated instructional design to successful virtual classroom delivery.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Why and how to avoid instructor-centered, lecture-based, slide-driven V-ILT sessions
  • How to design V-ILT sessions that actively engage learners, especially by minimizing the use of lecture and slides
  • How to build out V-ILT sessions
  • What successful organizations are doing to transform brick-and-mortar trainers into V-ILT facilitators
  • Why having real-time producers in the virtual classroom makes a difference

Novice and intermediate participants with instructional-systems design skills and familiarity with Web meeting and virtual classroom tools will most benefit from attending this session.
