A masterclass, something to aim at when presenting online.
- Sam Derby, Oriel Square Ltd, UK
A highly-interactive course, delivered virtually, to equip you to run virtual training with impact
Learn how to adapt your face-to-face training skills to a virtual environment in order to deliver training which has the same impact as face-to-face training, with the potential for even better learning outcomes.
COVID-19 has changed the world virtually overnight – as trainers, we’ve gone from being in a physical training room on a Friday, to being confined to our homes by the following Monday. And our clients are quickly realising that it’s possible to do a lot more virtually than they previously thought – meetings, sales visits, team-work… and training courses. And it’s up to trainers and training organisations to adapt, effectively, to this new reality.
The good news is, that many of the skills trainers use in a physical training room are absolutely valid in the virtual world as well. Yet there are certain changes which must be made in order to ensure virtual training is at least as effective, and even more effective, than face-to-face equivalents.
In this two-hour virtual knowledge bite, you’ll learn how to make changes to your approach to training, in order to bring the maximum value to your learners. And as this is running virtually, you’ll also get to experience virtual best-practice from the point of view of a course participant.

Navanter, the parent brand of Knowledge Bites, was founded in 2011, and was one of the pioneers of virtual training. At the time, we called it live e-learning and that’s exactly what it was – a “best of both worlds” blend of the live experience of a training room, with the convenience of online training.
At Knowledge Bites, we bring you a decade of knowledge and experience in virtual training, offering all our training courses in a virtual format. And during these current restrictions from COVID-19, and beyond, we’re here to share with you how to deliver engaging virtual training to your learners.
