But first, let's talk about platform skills, and how you can master the use of technology to achieve all of your training outcomes.
Ultimately, a great virtual workshop is tool-agnostic – instead, having an engaging and meaningful online training is all about the design.
But, after a lot of research and trial and error, there are a few online accessory apps that we'd recommend.
After months of research, testing, and improving – we've settled on a few tools that enable us to run truly engaging virtual workshops. And we now have the experience and the testimonials to say that virtual training can often be better than live training.
In this podcast, we explore the key tools that you can use to create attention-grabbing virtual workshops.
The assumption that you can't run long virtual workshops – is not true. With the right programme design, you're not limited to 90 minutes or 4 hours. In fact, most of People Potential's virtual workshops are a full day or longer.
In this podcast, we explore the virtual workshop design methodology that People Potential uses – that keeps participants engaged and wanting to learn. And we'll give you a toolbox of tools you can use to keep your participants on their toes.
With COVID-19 hitting the training sector like a tonne of bricks, all live training was cancelled, leaving trainers, corporations, and would-be learners on the lurch and unsure of what to do. Before movement controls were implemented, we saw the writing on the wall and began the process of converting our training programmes from offline to online. But it wasn't as simple as it seemed.
In this podcast, we're with seasoned trainers and training designers – Terry Netto, Marianne Vincent, and Francis Jee. And they'll be sharing with you what they had to do to transform offline programmes – into online programmes – and how you can do the same as well.

In this podcast, join Terry Netto, Marianne Vincent and Francis Jee as they help you to discover how you too can transform online learning within your organisation.
