Due to the coronavirus outbreak, a growing number of universities, schools, colleges, and companies are devoting in-person classes, events, and meetings and moving them online. However, doing live virtual training is not the same as moving to another location that is physical. It takes thought and preparation. But in these crisis situations, leaders, trainers and teachers don’t have much time to get ready for the pedagogical shift. So, here are some strong resources for switching from classroom to live virtual education, training, meetings, and events. (If your LX designer is too busy with everyone else!)
