While the benefits of virtual classroom training using tools such as WebEx, Adobe Connect, and GoToTraining may be obvious to you and your learners, your managers aren’t sold. They feel face-to-face training is the only way to control the learning experience and that the transition to online learning will be too difficult. They’ve seen too many boring webinars where participants multi-task throughout, and they believe that an attempt to move training online will be a waste of time and resources.

In 2010, 88 percent of The eLearning Guild’s survey respondents agreed that, when set up and used properly, online training was as effective as good face-to-face training. This session will address the realities behind setting up and using virtual sessions and focus on ways to prove to stakeholders that these technologies can be effective.
