3 Things You Must Do for Successful Virtual Training from Cindy Huggett
There has been a huge upheaval in traditional human learning globally, whether it’s about kids in classrooms or adults in corporate training rooms. Switching from mostly face-to-face instruction to almost entirely virtual (online) learning has been daunting for teachers and trainers, as well as their learners. This change to a digital landscape has meant that communication has had to adapt with the use of educational, workplace, and Corporate Training Software being made available so that those who are at home can learn/teach in the best way possible.
Useful information about how to both teach and learn virtually is “out there” now – dozens of articles, videos, books, and more, about effective virtual instruction (teaching or training – call it what you will) and about effective virtual learning.
After we have gotten over the shock of face-to-face instruction coming to a standstill, most of us have gathered our own inner strength and outer resources and found (or are in the process of discovering) the knowledge and courage to build something new that will serve us and our learners well.
Part of my job as a teacher and trainer is to scour the Internet for resources that I think might be useful to you, my readers. So, with that in mind, a friend recommended the work by virtual training consultant Cindy Huggett, author of the following excellent books:
Virtual Training Basics
Virtual Training Tools and Templates
The Virtual Training Guidebook.
In exploring Cindy’s prolific and highly-practical work, I came across her slide presentation from a conference session she facilitated awhile back. She graciously posted the presentation on SlideShare.net with the “share” link activated:
