Webinar Overview

The worldwide pandemic in 2020 meant a rapid shift to online learning for training providers. For many, this was with little or no training in effective online learning design and delivery. Significant effort was put into creating resources including videos and handouts, that became the lifeline for students at a distance.

In 2021, it is time to move past crisis mode and further build on the enormous efforts of training organization staff. To make the most of the situation, it is time to review and evaluate the resources that were developed in 2020. 

An effective online learning program requires a different approach to designing face-to-face classes, with different strategies needed to engage learners and motivate them to login to your classes. For this reason, it is important to understand the fundamentals of online learning, which is exactly what this bootcamp aims to provide you with! 

This first bootcamp session will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of online learning to begin the journey. It will provide examples of activities that can be used with learners online and explore how this can be approached. 


Key topics covered:

  • Synchronous vs Asynchronous activities 
  • Interaction vs Interactivity 
  • Social learning concept
  • Mapping out course outcomes and content possibilities
  • Participant interaction map
