Training in the Virtual World

Transferring your face-to-face skills to the online world.

The Challenge

Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) can have an amazing impact when done right or be a painful experience for everyone involved when done poorly. Deciding to move training classes online is one thing, bringing your teams’ skills up to speed to deliver effectively online is another.

The Solution

Training in the Virtual World is an advanced-level workshop, highly tailored to meet the unique needs of each client. The overarching goal of this offering is to build and polish the skills necessary to facilitate high-quality virtual training sessions. Workshop objectives typically focus on presenting content, using virtual tools, facilitating group discussion, setting up and debriefing exercises, and providing productive learner feedback.

The specific issues targeted in this workshop are highly customized to each client’s pool of trainers, however, the following list represents a sample of learning objectives we find to be commonplace. Work focuses on skills participants need to:

  • Engage participants in the process.
  • Manage nervousness.
  • Set clear expectations and learning objectives.
  • Deliver slides designed for virtual delivery (even content prepared by others).
  • Use virtual tools such as chat, hand raising, video, etc.
  • Encourage participation and control discussions.
  • Connect dots and identify common themes.
  • Set up and debrief exercises including using virtual breakouts.
  • Work with co-trainers and a moderator.
  • Manage difficult people and situations.
  • Think on their feet.

Training in the Virtual World often includes reusable job aids and reference materials for applying what’s learned in the virtual class to situations learners face outside of it.
