Not all learners can learn in the same way. When dealing with complicated topics, learners may experience frustration and confusion that happens as a result of having a complex process or idea explained to them through a single medium.
This is where Virtual classrooms come into play. A Virtual classroom is a product of traditional teaching that is augmented by modern technology. It can provide learners with all the benefits of traditional classroom education with all the benefits of modern e-learning.
Here are a few ways in which Virtual Classrooms can help your training institute.
1. They Deliver Your Message Fast
With Virtual Classrooms and webinars, you can reach your audience in a fraction of the time as compared to other approaches.
Avoid travel costs, long travel distances, and expensive conference facilities to book. It’s the ideal solution if you have a simple message that you need to deliver quickly, or if there are specific elements of a wider training blend that need to be communicated or updated more urgently than others.
Meet the requirements of your programme and give yourself the time you need to focus on developing the less time-sensitive elements of the blend.
2. Clear Doubt Immediately
Your learners are probably going to have some doubts before and after you deliver your training. In a well-timed Virtual Classroom, your SMEs can be there to answer them. Deal with any uncertainty when it arises and prevent misconceptions from forming.
3. Explain It Differently
Even the best learners might struggle with some topics at some point and will need some support and advice. Since your learners have a voice in a Virtual Classroom they can tell you if they don’t understand, or if an example simply doesn’t apply to them.
4. Easily Share Personal Stories
We learn from our mistakes, and we learn from the mistakes of others as well. Virtual Classrooms offers a platform where participants can share experiences that others can learn from. Participants can share some of the challenges they are currently facing with the group under an expert’s guidance and can discuss some viable solutions.
5. They Encourage Social Learning
Virtual Classrooms offer tools that an experienced facilitator can use to create a collaborative learning environment. Activities that were used in face-to-face training can be repurposed for virtual classrooms, or unique experiences can be created utilizing the digital environment.
You can create an environment for cross-departmental collaboration, offer guidance or step back and let them work things out for themselves. Activities in Virtual Classrooms offers an excellent opportunity to utilize the soft skills and varied expertise of the participants.
