Publisher's Summary

Every learning environment is different. When it comes to virtual learning, you must prepare yourself for a whole host of new considerations in order to deliver effective training. The Successful Virtual Classroom arms you with a proven approach, tools, techniques, and exercises to create the engaging, interactive, and memorable learning experiences demanded by today's increasingly mobile and globally dispersed workforce. Packed with interaction examples, icebreakers, exercises - as well as case studies from organizations such as Oracle, UPS, and more - the book helps you bring the virtual classroom to life in high-impact ways, whether you're uniting physically dispersed teams, reaching participants globally, or simply providing training in a more convenient manner.
Going far beyond a mere introduction to new technology, Darlene Christopher introduces the unique and powerful PREP Model, which takes you step by step through the stages of planning, rehearsing, executing, and post session reviews for fine-tuning your program. You'll learn how to:

Leverage virtual classroom features such as content and screen sharing, annotation tools, polls, and breakout rooms
Consider every aspect of training from the participant's perspective
Convert existing face-to-face training materials for virtual classroom use
Compensate for the absence of body language
Weave chat responses into the discussion
Monitor participant feedback
Encourage audience partici­pation
Engage individuals with different learning styles
Meet the unique needs of global participants.
Virtual training gives you and your learner's unprecedented flexibility... but the new tools at your disposal are only as good as your ability to adapt your training style. This audiobook shows you how to orchestrate and deliver the high-impact virtual interactions your organizations and participants have come to expect.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Easy read

Easy to follow, enjoyable narrator and good content. I listened to this book in less than a week. Some of the contents was review but there were some good points I had not considered. I thought chapters five and six were the most informative. The content referenced respected sources.

good overview of an intro to virtual learning

although I have done virtual learning via webinar, I hadn't realised there was better software out there hosting wider features such as virtual whiteboards and chat pods.

this book gives some good ideas on transforming classroom based activities into virtual ones. will definitely come in useful :)
