Redesigning a Live Course in a Virtual World

The pandemic has created a number of challenges for learning and development professionals. One specific challenge is the how to deliver training and education programs that have historically been delivered face-to-face via virtual means.

In this session, you will discover how our team took a highly interactive 5-day face-to-face onboarding program and redesigned it for a purely internalized virtual delivery. You will explore the specific constraints we had to work under, including working with only 6% of the original budget and working with no external vendor support. We will discuss the challenges and roadblocks we encountered, and explore the solutions we put into place. The lessons we learned will help inform your own projects during these challenging times.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Critical factors to consider when resigning face-to-face experiences for virtual delivery
  • How to manage learner expectations along the way
  • The importance of communication and creativity
