Set Expectations based on Objectives
How do your participants know what to expect from your webinar?
What about your virtual instructor led training?
Or your live online meeting?
Or are you calling it a live virtual training?
Or is it called virtual classroom training?
We are confused, aren’t we? And to top it off, we learning & development professionals are not in alignment with our definitions & terminology.
Here’s what has worked for my training over the past 20 years and it is based on what needs to be accomplished:
- Webinar: “lower” level objectives, larger audiences, interactive.
- Virtual Classroom Training: “higher” level objectives, smaller audiences, interactive & collaborative.
Design learning activities and interactions appropriate for the expectations, based on the intended objectives!
Keep engaging your live online participants and let’s talk if you have a team that needs to become Virtual Training Heroes!
