5 Steps For A Flawless Virtual Training

by Curious Lion

This eBook is for anyone who is passionate about creating meaningful custom virtual learning experiences. Your culture matters. Your corporate values set you apart. Your virtual training should reflect that. This eBook will help you achieve that.

Key Chapters

  1. Identify The Building Blocks Of Your Course

    It’s important to start with an inventory of everything you’re going to use in creating your training.

  2. Outline Sections That Each Has A Distinct Learning Objective

    Organize your content by scaffolding it around learning objectives framed from the perspective of the learner.

  3. Pick Your Media, Delivery Format, And Tone

    A blended approach means no single solution can meet all the learning needs of your audience. Instead, use a combination of multimedia to transfer the knowledge you’re looking to transfer.

  4. Storyboard Or Script, How You’re Going To Transfer Your Knowledge

    The most important step, here is where you craft your narrative flow and incorporate elements to curate the learning experience, such as community, deliberate practice, and feedback.

  5. Consider How You Will Reinforce Learning After The Course

    Your learning may consist of videos and live virtual sessions. There is room for learning in the spaces between. The final step in designing your online learning course is to consider the support you will provide to learners after the course is over.

  6. Examples Of Great Virtual Training

    In this chapter, I break down 4 explainer videos and provide notes and links to what they did well, and what we can learn from them to improve.

  7. Instructional Design Concepts

    A handy reference guide with quick explanations of important concepts to keep in mind while you create your virtual training, concepts such as scaffolding, motivation, and spaced repetition.

  8. Cognitive Theory Of Multimedia Learning

    Our mix of text, images, audio, animation, and video in online learning is often flawed, resulting in cognitive overload. Follow these principles to reduce the cognitive load of your virtual training.

The best educators are storytellers because they imbue learning with imagination, teaching us to visualize and think about things instead of simply presenting us with information.

This eBook describes an extremely efficient 5-step plan that will help you succeed in your virtual training endeavours. You will also familiarize yourself with some great examples of virtual training and valuable resources.
