Topic: Virtual Training Solutions for Corporations and Schools

Date: Monday, October 13, 2014

Time:
6:00 – 6:30 pm: Networking
6:30 – 8:00 pm: Business Meeting / Program

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Since budgets are often tight, sometimes we have to formulate creative solutions on ways we can still train employees/students without compromising the educational effectiveness.  In some cases, we can save money while still hitting our learning targets. Other times, we encounter hardware constraints, firewall/bandwidth issues, and the need for additional assistance with online moderation and post-production work.

Our facilitators come from both corporate and academic settings.

Dale will describe how “going virtual” can have an impact within the organization (especially in terms of a cultural change for attendees). Adobe Connect is used to offer synchronous VILT sessions at Honeywell to field technicians around the world. He will also demo additional tools he uses, such as Open Sankore, Zoomit, and Radmin.

Deb will share her experiences working with the Minneapolis Public Schools.
