About this Webinar 

When it comes to a convenient, time-efficient way to get a message or concept across to a large audience, live e-learning events such as webinars and web conferencing are hard to beat. Clearly, they are quickly becoming an indispensable part of the e-learning world as well as the wider business community. 

Live e-learning events cut down on the travel and administrative time needed to coordinate in-person meetings and allow you to reach a broader audience than ever before. However, there is still some work to be done in making these sessions as effective as they could be, before they completely edge out the traditional, face-to-face experience. 

While setting up an online e-learning event is relatively easy to do, it does require more than simply sitting in front of a camera and talking. Tiny tweaks can make or break the experience and can ensure that you attract and maintain the attention of the audience and keep them engaged, so that they retain the knowledge and skills you are trying to impart. 

This webinar will explore how to best utilise web conferencing interactivity tools, demonstrate how to repurpose traditional classroom exercises for the online setting and share dozens of ideas for how to engage the learner within the e-learning context. Further to this, it will share specific tips on how to encourage regular participation.

Alignment: This webinar presents some of the course content for the Unit of Competency TAEDEL501 Facilitate e-learning, which is an elective unit in both the TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training and the TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design and Development.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • Establishing the e-learning environment
  • Delivering effective online training sessions using web conferencing interactivity tools
  • Re-purposing traditional classroom exercises for collaborative online learning
  • Engaging learner attention and participation within e-learning programs
  • Tips for facilitating live e-learning events.
