Some research has been released by the Institute for Corporate Productivity in the US, about virtual classroom training.

A write up by Tom Stone (co-author of Interact & Engage!: 50 Activities for Virtual Training, Meetings, and Webinars) highlights some interesting results, including:

  • Primary barriers to great virtual classroom training included lack of time for learners to devote to virtual classroom training (47%), lack of producers (44%) and senior leaders preferring other approaches (36%)
  • And the areas of improvement was the interactivity and engagement of the training. Some more specific areas of improvement included:
    • Upskilling of trainers
    • Leveraging platforms designed for training and not just meetings
    • Better preparing learners to use the technology ahead of time
    • More intentionally designed content and materials (e.g., using a wider range of activities during each training event)

    arnt these the commonly accepted best practices that we#ve been using for over a decade?

     

     

    • Agreed. But, is the point of the report to get those best practices out to a wider audience?

      • if so, it's a good thing :-)  -.  but, do those wider audiences already know these things? 

        Often people are aware of the existin best practices , but, for a variety of reasons avoid using them, such as no support from the boss / budget for engaging with a producer / professional host... 


        • I guess that's what I mean by the wider audience, to the people that are making those investment and resource decisions. My own research is highlighting similar issues!
