Virtual classroom technology (ILinc, Adobe Connect, WebEx, Elluminate, etc.) provides a wonderful live, real-time bridge between the traditional classroom and the learner. But it isn’t “just like” the traditional classroom, and in the wrong hands can be deadly dull.

In this session we’ll learn to read virtual “body language," look at ways to increase interactivity and engagement, utilize games and activities, and create visuals that support learning.

Instructor: Elaine Biech


As today's talent development professional, you have multiple options for delivering learning to employees. The 70-20-10 model (70% hands-on experiences; 20% developmental interactions; 10% formal learning) continues to serve as a valuable guideline for using the wide variety of developmental options available.

We are experts in the 10% domain-delivering training or programs-but what's our role beyond instructor led training? How do we create and deliver personalized developmental experiences? How can we support social learning? How can we ensure employees are immersed in the “right” experiential learning?

Recording - 5 Steps to Making Your Virtual Classroom Mobile and Social

Posted by InSync Training on Oct 14, 2015 2:36:45 PM

Instructor: Jennifer Hofmann


In today’s hyper-networked virtual, global, and mobile workplace, organizations are beginning to rely on informal learning using social networks and mobile technologies. This makes sense. Social media provides rich resources for informal learning outside the classroom as well as supplemental learning within the classroom. Both timely and collaborative, social media outlets provide you with the power to make sure learning occurs during your events and continues afterward. It can be used to build community and continue the learning conversation started in the classroom, as a stand-alone “just in time” set of resources for instant gratification, or for anything in between.
