Whether it's an online meeting, a presentation via webinar, or live online training, engagement is the main question on everyone's mind.  Will it be worth my time to attend or will it be an opportunity to check e-mail instead?  Online meeting technology is powerful and has made it easy to connect with people from anywhere in the world at any time.  Yet we often struggle to get everyone to interact.  Interaction is the answer to successful engagement, and using the features of the platform is the answer to interaction.  However, the features alone do not engage the participants.  It's what you choose to do with those features that will make the difference.  

Learn what you can do to be successful in the virtual environment and avoid everyone asking for a recording or a copy of the slides five minutes into your next virtual event.  

Take your skills to the next level with this unique, stay-where-you-are, program that will help you:

  • Describe how engaging live online meetings, webinars, and training events are delivered ... and deliver them!
  • Determine the appropriate level of interaction to create impactful live online events.
  • Analyze design considerations for platforms like WebEx, Zoom, Adobe Connect, GoToTraining, and other platforms.  
  • Use a platform-features checklist to optimize the investment in your virtual classroom technology.  
  • Analyze activities for specific engagement techniques to apply to your own activity design.
