When planning to adopt virtual-classroom platforms for learning sessions, successful organizations need a clear idea of what management, design, delivery, and technical issues to consider.

The eLearning Guild has been successfully producing virtual learning sessions since 2004, and has developed thousands of hours of recorded content. In this session, you will explore the key elements of virtual-session success that the Guild has identified from our decade-plus of experience. You’ll learn how to develop a reliable, repeatable process for producing virtual learning sessions, how to adjust instructional design and delivery techniques for virtual classrooms, and how to make your virtual-classroom platform and related tools work reliably. You’ll also learn how to successfully coach a subject matter expert (SME) and leave with tips on how to best avoid technical issues—all while making everything look easy to the learners.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to effectively manage the production of successful virtual learning sessions, from planning to evaluation
  • The recommended roles for an effective virtual-classroom production team
  • How to design for virtual classrooms rather than face-to-face ones
  • How to determine how much coaching an SME needs to be an effective presenter
  • Tips for avoiding and troubleshooting technical issues before, during, and after virtual sessions
