Add Discussion Groups, Goal-setting, Action-Planning or Online Coaching Tools to Your Own Webinars, eLearning & Classroom Training Let’s face it: Webinars are a great way to convey information inexpensively, quickly and conveniently. But by themselves, they don’t necessarily mean participants will apply what they learn. And chat is a great way for participants to share information during the webinar . But wouldn’t it add far more learning value to enable participants to have pre-session conversations and discussions after the event, as they apply the content? Get Interactive By integrating a few tools with your webinars, you can increase and even track their learning value. Learning can be so much more than talking heads and PowerPoint! Discussions & Discussion Groups – Invite participants to join pre-session discussions online. Avoid wasting webinar time on basics: Post advance materials. Assign pre-work and exercises in the discussion group before the webinar. Enable participants to post questions, share experiences, exchange ideas after applying the information. Invite execs, managers and SMEs to jump in. Goal-Setting – Do webinar participants exit the session with the clear intent to apply what they learn? Not if they haven’t written it down, complete with timelines. Help learners apply the key ideas with a simple goal-setting tool. You and other coaches will receive documented reports of their goals and progress tracking online and in real-time.

Add Discussion Groups, Goal-setting, Action-Planning or Coaching Tools to Your Own Webinars & Learning Programs Action Planning – Do participants need a tool to help them plan the action items and sequences of events to successfully implement the training? If so, add a simple online tool that enables them to document and track the steps they must take to successfully implement what they learn. Coaches receive online copies and updates as they occur. Coaching – Your participants are geographically dispersed, yet they need help and coaching while applying the training and developing their skills. Add an online coaching system to your webinars to ensure the success of your training. Who can coach? Managers, mentors, top performers, trainers, execs – anyone you select as appropriate. Coaches and participants interact in real-time online as participants apply the training. Interactions are documented and visible by all coaches. Track Measurable Impacts of Training – Is the training working ? Is it being applied ? What are the results? Can you prove them? Once participants establish goals, they report progress with an easy tool. Coaches receive the progress reports and tracking of measurable results individually and in a dashboard report for the group. In real-time. Questions? Click here to ask.
