Virtual training goes by many names, including synchronous online training, virtual classroom training, and virtual, instructor-led training. Virtual training is a highly interactive, instructor-led training class, with defined learning objectives and participants who come together using a web-based classroom platform. These platforms include Zoom, Adobe Connect, Cisco GoToTraining, and many more. All of them include a suite of tools to help learners and the trainer interact and communicate by using chat, whiteboards, breakout rooms, screen sharing, and more.
