Organizations are increasingly moving from instructor-led classroom training to the synchronous virtual classroom. However, one minute of classroom time does not equal one minute of virtual classroom time. And some face-to-face activities simply don’t make sense online. How do you know what to translate versus what to build from scratch, or what activity options are available that will help meet the desired learning outcomes?

This webcast will explore the three simple steps you should follow when converting your traditional, in-person training classes into live online ones. In addition, you will learn how to avoid the three most common conversion mistakes, and get lots of ideas for virtual class activities.

Whether you are a trainer, a designer, or someone overseeing training, you will leave this webcast with practical tips for migrating your classes to virtual solutions.

By attending this webcast, you will be able to:
• Translate classroom lessons into virtual activities.
• Avoid the three most common conversion mistakes.
• Determine the best virtual activity format for each learning objective.
• Design virtual sessions for frequent participant engagement.
