Creating Effective Webinars for Learners and Lead Generation (Webinar Series)

5, 12 & 19 October 2017

When done effectively, webinar training can rival live in-person courses in learner engagement, content retention and learning application. Webinar training has the added benefit of reaching large audiences in diverse locations at the same time. However, these programs need to be planned and delivered differently from face-to-face courses to have maximum impact.

This webinar is focused on helping participants to create dynamic, engaging and effective webinars aimed at improving the transfer of learning and thus business results.

Key topics covered within webinar series

  • Instructional design principles that make webinars just as effective as classroom training
  • 6 steps to success when presenting webinars
  • Technical Do’s and Don’ts – how to make the webinar run smoothly
  • Creating engaging openers to draw the audience in
  • Ways to keep the audience involved and energised during the webinar
  • Strategies for asking and answering questions effectively
  • Techniques for closing the webinar with impact and revisiting key concepts effectively
  • Ideas for keeping the learners motivated after the webinar
  • Comparison of different webinar platforms
  • Reviewing a webinar project plan including a mock webinar template.
