What makes great virtual instructor-led training?
Updated: Mar 18
With people taking part in more virtual instructor-led training (VILT) than ever before, it's essential that you get the most out of your classes, and give the best experience possible to your students.
So how can you make sure your classes deliver? Interaction and engagement is a large part of successful virtual classes, it's what can make it feel like a 'normal' classroom experience. The tutor and learners should be encouraged to interact with each other in as many ways as possible.
Here are a few ideas on how to get everyone involved in your training sessions:
When you start a class you can have the learners introduce themselves or share something about themselves with the group. This would of course depend on the size of the class, but it's always nice get to know who you're working, or learning with and can make people feel more at ease.
This is a great way for your learners to come together and share ideas. Utilising a breakout room feature gives your students the opportunity to discuss their thoughts and get creative in smaller numbers and can often lead to more in depth discussions from those involved.
Adding elements in your classes where learners can work directly with you and their peers is another way to encourage interaction throughout the lesson. Using a shared whiteboard can do this , allowing users to collaborate on the same page in realtime.
Including a quiz or small assessment as part of your lesson is another easy option to break up the session and keep the learner's minds active and engaged. It also gives them a sense of accomplishment and you, as the tutor, an instant result on your class.
