This event aligns with the Professional/Technology Application of ATD's Talent Development Capability Model.

Are you moving your training classes from onsite, in-person classes to virtual, online classes? Do you provide hands-on software application training? Do you need dedicated software environments for students to complete practice labs? If you can answer Yes to any of these questions, then there are 7 things you need to know before you deliver your class online. This presentation will address these 7 things broken down into 3 categories. Specifically, there are things to know and do before class starts, things to know and do during class, and things to know and do after class finishes. In each category, we’ll discuss best practices to ensure your training class is both relevant and effective. We’ll even provide templates you can use to get started implementing these practices quickly. Studies show that student retention increases by as much as 75% when training includes hands-on practice. However, that’s much more difficult to manage in a virtual world where students attend through web conferencing applications like Zoom, Webex, Skype, and Teams. Learn from our experience how to make the most of a virtual classroom so that your instructors are more efficient, and your students are more satisfied!
