Virtual Design Victories
An insider’s view of face-to-face classroom content transitioned into interactive live online learning
Repurposing, redesigning, transitioning, transforming, or converting. No matter what label you give it, moving a face-to-face classroom course to the virtual classroom is more complicated than it initially appears.
At first glance, it seems quite simple. The learning objectives are defined, the course has already been developed, the PowerPoint is ready to go, and the facilitators could deliver the session in their sleep. Transfer all this over to the online classroom in a few days and we are ready to go, right?
If only it were that simple.
One important element to delivering engaging virtual instructor-led training (VILT) is the instructional design component. Each course needs to be specifically created for the VILT environment. Face-to-face materials such as the PowerPoint presentation, participant handouts, and case studies are good resources, but they will not stand alone successfully in the virtual classroom.
This session offers an insider’s view of two real world examples of face-to-face classroom content snippets that have been transitioned to the virtual classroom effectively. These “road tested” course segments will allow participants to:
Compare the design elements of the face-to-face classroom examples against its virtual classroom counterparts, side by side.
Discuss design decisions that were made with these examples in the transition from face-to-face to virtual.
Share other design ideas that could be applied to these examples.
Consider how elements from these examples could be applied to the courses they design back on the job.
