Virtual classroom for corporate training has become an increasingly popular option in the past few months due to COVID-19 pandemic. It gave corporate L&D professionals across the globe an immediate virtual training solution to tackle disruptions and mitigate the time required for designing and developing eLearning courses. It has also managed to become a favorite of different audiences – learners, Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), and stakeholders across the board. Why?
It gives the best of both worlds – instructor’s guidance from traditional classroom training and anytime, anywhere accessibility of digital training. And though these sessions are synchronous, it can easily be recorded and used for asynchronous training. Now that’s tough to beat!
And while virtual classroom is in no way a ‘fresh out of the oven’ idea, its use in corporate training is still newer as compared to other training approaches. And when you are using something new for the first time, it is important to go through the user-manual first to avoid any confusion or error in later stages. And when it comes to virtual classroom, it isn’t just you who needs to go through the introductory guidelines, the instructors and learners do too.
