This comprehensive workshop employs a blended approach combining 5 synchronous sessions with off-line self-paced activities. You will spend 10 hours live, online, learning and practicing the key skills and step-by-step process to design a variety of instructional methods and materials to engage learners and maximize performance in the virtual classroom. An additional 6 to 8 hours for intersession work will also be required.
The 5 synchronous sessions, and all intersession work, are scheduled from Monday to Friday. In just one short week, you will gain the skills and confidence you need to successfully design virtual classroom training.
Maximum Class Size: 12 participants
Pre-requisite: Prior to attending this workshop (if you have not attended it previously), you must complete our 60-minute introductory session, Learning in the Virtual Classroom, to ensure you are comfortable with the tools you will be using in this course.
This workshop is delivered using the Adobe Connect platform. However, the content has been designed to apply to a wide variety of virtual classroom platforms.
Who Should Attend
For trainers who are currently designing or are expected to design synchronous/virtual classroom training. Participants should have fundamental knowledge and experience with instructional design principles. The workshop is also aimed at virtual classroom facilitators/trainers who want to gain a solid understanding of the unique design considerations that apply to the virtual classroom.
What You Will Learn
This workshop will give you a systematic, step-by-step, proven approach to design virtual classroom training that is as powerful as traditional classroom training (if not more). Rather than focusing narrowly on how to create interactions using the tools of a virtual classroom platform, this workshop will show you how to leverage all the features of your virtual classroom platform to make your training engaging and interactive and set your learners up for success when they return to their jobs.

"I have taken online courses from other companies that were draining and unfocused. Langevin classes on the other hand are wonderful! They set the pace based on the learners. They demonstrate best practices as they teach them. They give plenty of time for practice, and all their intersession work serves a purpose. Any Langevin class, is well worth taking!"
"Trying to develop WBT without taking this workshop is like building a house without a blueprint or floorplan."
