For long have we emphasized the importance of virtual training and the last few months have reinforced our belief. The COVID-19 crisis brought many training disruptions and challenges but most importantly, it made it clear that we can no longer rely only on in-person Instructor-led Training (ILT) to train our workforces. Many organizations have readily accepted this shift toward virtual training, and virtual classrooms in particular. Virtual classroom is a proof of how you can combine the essence of in-person instructor-led training with virtual platforms to create an engaging and effective plan to train your corporate workforce.
And yet, there are challenges you need to overcome to make virtual classrooms a success. Any sudden change in your training strategy needs careful planning, especially if it is your first venture into virtual training. The truth is – we have long relied on classroom instructor-led training programs and its powers of face-to-face real time interaction between instructors and learners. While it used to be hard to replicate the sense of in-person interactions before, it is a cakewalk now! With new-age learning technology and instructional practices, you can successfully duplicate any classroom interactivity in virtual instructor-led training and make for an engaging learning experience.
