Beginning with a redesign of the existing in person training program allows the client to truly understand the original objectives of the training program. This title explores various program re-design options using technology solutions to achieve the same learning objectives. The process culminates in the selection of the best blended delivery approach, based on organizational constraints, learner abilities, management support, and the timeline necessary to achieve learner success.

The trainer’s role in a virtual classroom requires additional knowledge and skills. The online trainer uses different tools, such as web collaboration software, to interact with participants. The participants are virtual—separated in different locations—which also requires a new training mindset. Sometimes there is no live communication at all, with participants reading and responding to information on a designated website. Coordinating these components demands specific skills from the online trainer. This Infoline will make delivering online training simple. With today’s e-learning tools, you don’t even have to be tech-savvy; many of the tools are intuitive and just require a little practice. You’ll be able to: define types of online training, transition your training skills to an online environment, and engage participants using a variety of methods. The Online Trainer’s Checklist Job Aid at the back of this issue will make online training a snap.
