Getting started with live online training
Wednesday, 15 July 2015 from 09:30 to 11:30 (BST)
This interactive training covers both the technical and human challenges associated with creating and launching a live online / virtual classroom CPD offering. It is the essential start-up kit to a successful programme.
Why attend this training
The virtual classroom is a powerful tool to disseminate knowledge - more powerful than ordinary webinars. It is low cost, relatively easy to set up, and accessible to most people globally. It is widely recognised that associations of all types need to be delivering effective education to their disparate membership, and this training will give you and understanding of what is involved, and enable you to start.
You will learn
The core requirements to enable you to start delivering live online CPD offerings:
- Sourcing of virtual classroom software
- The infrastructure required
- Online teaching challenges and how to prepare for them
You will experience first-hand a truly learner-centred session in a virtual classroom, and from this you will appreciate the added-value compared to a basic webinars. The training will also include guided discussions, where the group will be invited to share their issues and explore together options and solutions.
By the end of the session, you will be able to start planning a virtual classroom project.
Approximately 70% of this will be instruction, and 30% discussion, interaction and group work
