Whether it's an online meeting, a presentation via webinar, or live online training, engagement is the main question on everyone's mind. Will it be worth my time to attend, or will it be an opportunity to check email instead? Live online meeting technology is powerful and has made it easy to connect with people from anywhere in the world at any time, yet we often still struggle with getting everyone to interact.
Interaction is the answer to successful engagement and learning and using the features of the platform is the answer to interaction. However, the features alone do not engage the participants. It is what you choose to do with those features that will make the difference in your next virtual training, webinar, or meeting. Learn what you can do to be successful in the virtual environment and avoid everyone asking for a recording or a copy of the slides five minutes into your next virtual training.
Application on the Job
- Describe how engaging live online training activities build virtual participant engagement.
- Analyze activities for specific engagement techniques to apply to your own designs.
- Use a checklist of platform features to optimize the investment in your virtual meeting technology.
