#IDIODC CrowdCast on Virtual Training Tips and Tricks With Karen Hyder

Got a chance to listen to Karen Hyder on the #IDIODC CrowdCast. Karen has facilitated and assisted in developing The Learning Guilds online conferences and sessions. I’ve been lucky enough to have been coached by Karen over the years and appreciate all the tips, feedback, and guidance she has provided.

She shared the following tips:

  • Prior to the event, align with your participants and provide a list of expectations and have them commit to participating, focusing and interacting with you (the facilitator)
  • Think about a timed block and build in breaks if you need a longer session.
  • Everyone should be off mute, use video when necessary but not always needed. Think about your use case and what makes sense. Recommend at the opening.
  • As a general guideline, try to get participants involved every 2-3 minutes.
  • In the beginning, have them share a little about themselves, prefers this idea where people can share via chat vs using the time to go around the room in traditional training classrooms.
  • Prior to starting, play slides, rotating that provide best practices, how to solve issues, and upcoming things to remember.
  • Think about providing reading, video, or additional delivery of content prior to the interactive session so that everyone can take advantage of the LIVE time.
  • Have a backup plan, PLAN B, from a second internet connection (you can use your MiFi or phone) with a backup computer and headset to minimize disruptions or delays in your session.
  • Think about how you can educate and motivate your audience to make a difference.
Watch the CrowdCast replay.

Listen to all the DomainKnow #IDIODC casts hosted by Brent Schlenker and Chris Van Wingerden. They do a new cast every Tuesday for 30 minutes.

Last week, Jo Cook of Lighbulb Moment was a featured guest (she was amazing + dynamic) and I summarized some of her key points shared:

  • wired connection to your router will provide a faster connection for improved bandwidth
  • investing in a faster computer
  • audio quality is the most critical
  • adding a microphone or headset, based on the number and how often you use Logitech headsets recommended (I love them)
  • giant monitor or multiple monitors to be able to see all the feedback
  • minimize size and optimize assets to work with audience members who may have slower connections
  • can link to tools – adding surveys, feedback based on your tool
  • cameras = webcams – adding a external device leads to higher quality
  • what do I love best about the virtual classroom – “what drives me is helping people “Love when I can see people get that lightbulb moment”
  • what do I like least about the virtual classroom – “when the tech goes wrong” “this can happen in live classrooms, so learn around and how to work around these challenges
  • love hearing and seeing different perspectives, all sorts of different options and styles
  • Design interactions to avoid crickets, get the interaction from the start to help take advantage of the tools you have
  • Crowdcast. Adobe Connect, Zoom, GoToTraining, Webex, plus a whole lot more
  • What do you want to achieve?
  • Who are you working with?
  • Ease of use of the tool for the facilitator and the audience
  • Interactive: role plays (breakout rooms Zoom and Adobe Connect),
  • Need to let participants know what they need to do, prep and if they are using their webcam
  • Jo prefers 10 people in a virtual classroom so that she can get to know them and have the interactions she thinks is most helpful to adapt to their needs
  • More people, the fewer connections you can have with individuals which can prevent you from knowing the learning transfer
  • During your session, always think about how to get your audience involved, ask a question, feedback and the outcome you want
  • Think about “What can they be saying or doing instead of me?”
  • Download Jo’s Facilitation Guide via Jo’s blog can help and plan your session.
  • Adding a producer to assist, support, and provide quick feedback during a session.
  • Deliver with energy to help break thru the technology barrier
  • Get familiar with the technology ahead of time and get comfortable.
  • Call out, acknowledge, and connect with your audience chatting with you to build a bond. This is where a producer can assist while you are speaking to help provide feedback and support participants.
  • It’s ok to have silence for a moment.
  • Asking participants, what is your lightbulb moment for today?
