Enough has been said and written about the state of business in the current climate of COVID-19. While this crisis has impacted all of us in different ways, there are still many companies that are operating to the best of their abilities, trying to move everything online as much as possible to enable remote work.
And software training departments are no different. Having long practiced classroom-style instruction, where travel expenses are necessary and you can only train the students in the room, the time to go remote is now.
More than ever, virtual online training (or Virtual Instructor-Led Training) is becoming the new frontier for businesses that have not yet thought about it, have held back until now, or only offer a self-service option. With VILT, you get the best of both remote training and live instruction.
That’s why we wrote 3 eBooks we will be releasing in the coming weeks, including this one – 9 Vital Practices to Develop and Deliver Effective VILT Your Students Will Love – which provide practical techniques for building a virtual software training program.
In this eBook, we highlight best practices for online training from four different perspectives:
- The instructor
- The learner
- The technology
- The content/session
You will learn about ways to ensure instructors are ready to properly teach using the right tools, how to ensure students get the best learning experience, how to utilize technology to make sure training is properly delivered, and the right way to use content to ensure the sessions are interactive and engaging.
Be sure to keep an eye out for our upcoming eBooks on converting classroom content into virtual content for your VILT program as well as how to make a winning business case to convince senior management to move to virtual instructor-led training.
