For all of the potential virtual training offers, many trainers & designers worry about the new setting.
They’re uncertain about gauging interest, driving engagement, and managing technical issues that

Achieving better outcomes requires more than just learning how to use a platform. Developing a new mindset is critial. Virtual Classroom Essentials moves beyond platform training to address more nuanced aspects of virtual classroom training. 

Originally developed by a foremost expert in virtual training, the Essentials consists of interconnected virtual workshops intended to upskill trainers & designers for virtual classroom training. These workshops align to prepare trainers to be as successful virtually as they are when delivering in-person.
