When it comes to live online learning, organizations know they must make it work—and quickly. Producers make this transition easier, and when used properly they can improve the experience and create better learning outcomes. A competent and confident virtual event producer enables a course facilitator to focus solely on the learners and learning experience. Without this necessary production support, the facilitator may get distracted, waste valuable learning time, and have to manage technical difficulties. Learn the secrets to effective virtual training production to ensure your sessions are as polished as possible.
ATD, in partnership with online learning experts InSync Training, offers this virtual producer certificate via live online sessions that model the best practices taught in the course. In additional to learning how to trouble shoot, you will discover how to successfully launch breakout rooms and polls as well as scan for questions. The course concludes with a practice production session where feedback is provided. During this session, you and your peers will work together to coach, mentor, practice, and produce an existing piece of content.
