Virtual classroom experiences can range from engaging and exciting to dull and boring. The make-or-break factor often stems from the initial instructional design. In the mad scramble this past year to convert existing face-to-face for online delivery, incorporating solid design practices was often overlooked, with many organizations thinking it was an easy one-for-one conversion effort. That was far from the truth.

In this session you will learn the consequences of ignoring basic design principles when converting traditional classroom content for online delivery. You'll see why adapting face-to-face for virtual delivery should not be considered a one-for-one conversion effort. You'll learn how to successfully construct virtual learning experiences centered on the “3 T’s” of technology, timing, and talent. Finally, you'll learn how to assess your virtual classroom capabilities to select the optimal tool(s) for engagement.
