A virtual classroom is a digital environment that allows for live, collaborative and interactive learning, facilitated by an online trainer. Forward-thinking organisations across sectors are adopting virtual classrooms for many learning purposes – management training and skills improvement, onboarding and inductions, new systems training and more.
Here is our three-step process as a guide to help you introduce virtual classrooms to your organisation:
1. Help others see the benefit of digital learning
Introducing the idea of a virtual classroom to a risk-opposed organisation can be a challenge. With any change it is best practice to involve people from the very beginning – early buy-in is your first step.
2. Run a trial session
Start with a small, select group and deliver a trial session to create engagement and present the technology. Online features such as quizzes, polls and live chat simulate the experience of face-to-face training. Interactive whiteboards replicate the use of flipcharts with attendees writing live on screen. Participants can also be grouped in separate virtual rooms for focused, collaborative activities.
3. Engage with key stakeholders
Once you’ve scheduled your trial, involve your in-house training team to help in the design and delivery of the session. This is a great way of showcasing what can be achieved and how it can be done.
