Instructional Planning and Design Services

Repurposing for the Synchronous Virtual Learning Environment

NEED

In the past five years, more and more companies are converting in-person training for delivery in the virtual learning environment. The challenge for most organizations is determining how to achieve the same level of learner engagement they have seen in face-to-face environments and accommodate the shorter timeframe in virtual programs. To be successful, you need to carefully analyze the content and instructional approach in order to achieve success with virtual instruction.

OUR PROCESS

One size does not fit all in good instructional design. We believe an agile and iterative approach yields the best results when developing a virtual course.

 

 

Assess

 

Several things need to be efficiently assessed prior to diving into a conversion or new course project. A review of the context for training, audience/organizational need, current course evaluations, and Subject Matter Expert input should be done.

 

 

Access

 

Technology plays a key role in offering a virtual solution. It is critical to know if the proper technology infrastructure exists to deliver a virtual solution and if the target audience has access to this technology.

 

 

Design

 

The key is startup with a virtual instruction plan and then developing prototypes. One of the most important elements of this phase is identifying the core learning objectives and ruthlessly editing content to meet the time constraints of the virtual classroom. During this stage we evaluate new strategies or information that may enhance the virtual learning experience. Our approach is to work with your learning or business organization as a team to iteratively design the course structure and activities.

 

 

Develop

 

Once a prototype is identified for Alpha release, course materials, instructor training, testing, and live delivery are completed. This also includes post-Alpha analysis and development of the Beta test course prior to full implementation.

 

 

EVALUATE YOUR TRAINING TEAM

 

Often we find organizations forget to evaluate their instructors and facilitators for transfer to the virtual environment. We can help you answer the following:

 

  • Is your existing training staff prepared to deliver virtual coursework?
  • Will you need to train subject matter experts to successfully teach virtually?
  • What kind of Train-the-trainer process do you need for virtual classes?

Insights for Working Virtually

    Virtual teams are failing! Who's at fault?

    We have a perception problem.  It seems like managing and working on a virtual team should be getting easier. With all the great technical solutions for connecting, sharing documents, collaborating visually online, we’ve got what we need to address the key challenges to move projects, plans, and innovation to success.  Managing virtual teams is such a routine activity now that we often hear leaders say, “I’ll just do what I’ve always done well as a manager and I’ll get the same results.”  The question we need to answer - is this working and are we getting the results we expect?

    3 Fatal Virtual Presenter Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

    Okay, not life threatening ... but fatal to any chance you have of influencing your listeners. You know that person that's dreadful to listen to on a virtual call? The person that makes you want to mentally check out when they speak? You don't want people thinking of you or your teammates that way. I've personally coached more than 5,000 presenters globally. During that time, I've seen many unintentional, but common mistakes most presenters make. Some mistakes are certainly expected and won't do much damage. What I term as "fatal" mistakes endanger your message, hinder the audience's ability to engage with

    Open Offices Don't Work! Impact to Virtual Teams

    Recent analysis shows that over 70% of all offices have an open plan – no doors, no cubicles, and relatively few conference rooms. Open offices have been around since the 1950’s. The intent of this office configuration has been to increase opportunities for collaboration and casual exchange of ideas. In many cases that has been true. We've known since the days of "tiger teams" that putting a project team together in one place can efficiently produce innovative results. It is also great for the boss with a command and control mindset monitoring workflow. But how does this apply to a 21st
