16 March 2022

Wanting to know what it is learners want from your live online sessions? Looking for ways to always get active participation?

Select a webinar that suits your needs or bundle all three to save! 

Please note: The Thriving Live Online webinar has now occurred. However you can still purchase the recording independently or as part of the bundle.


We know that online participants are more likely to pay attention in live sessions if they're actively involved. Furthermore, they're more likely to retain information if they have opportunities to assimilate ideas. 

Yet let's face it, too often those mic's stay turned off and that chat-box stays empty. In this webinar, you’ll hear current research about what students want from your live online sessions, and you’ll learn practical strategies for meeting those expectations. 

Then, live polling is introduced. Students love the anonymity of live polling, and they respond to the change in pace that comes with using a variety of poll types. 

During this highly interactive part of the session, you’ll experience this ‘gateway to engagement’ tool firsthand. Experience several different poll types to get a feel for the student experience, while discussing why it’s important to embrace different question types for different purposes. 

A detailed note taking workbook is provided to all participants which features a link to bonus content about how to take effective notes.

Key topics covered in this webinar

  • What students think – likes, dislikes, and ideal purpose of being live online
  • Proven, practical strategies for better live online sessions 
  • How to use polling to generate active student engagement 
  • Highly interactive Q&A throughout
