Moving From the Classroom to Virtual Training

Many good classroom instructors and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) struggle when making the move from the familiar environment of the classroom to the online world. Why do good instructors struggle?

In this article from the November 2012 issue of T+D Magazine, Wayne Turmel explains some of the common mistakes organizations make when moving people from the traditional classroom to the world of Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT).

Among those are:

  • We don’t clearly understand the possibilities and limitations of the new technology
  • We aren’t as comfortable using this new platform as we are presenting in the traditional classroom setting
  • Online training is not as enjoyable as being in the classroom, so we’re not motivated to make the transition

Find out how to help yourself, your team and your organization make the move to VILT with less drama.
