Using LABS for Webinar and Virtual Training

Fri, Oct 30, 2020 at 11AM - 12PM Pacific / 2PM - 3PM Eastern
When technical and software training involve face-to-face interactions and manipulating equipment, it becomes burdensome due to the need for tactile and kinesthetic experiences. Although webinars and virtual training are digital, they provide ample opportunities to add realism and for motor skills development. They act as the “go-between experiences” between physical experience and cognitive learning process. 

Unfortunately, many designers, instructors, and trainers in technical and software subjects are stymied by the mindset that it is impossible to do technical training in webinar. There lies a tremendous amount of missed opportunities.

In this session, you will learn:
  • Where lies the reluctance to use Webinar LABs for technical and software training
  • How and where to find opportunities to use Webinar LABs
  • What is the fundamental structure and design of Webinar LABs
  • How to apply the “Go-between Experiences” models between cognitive and physical learning
  • How to apply “5 Webinar LABs Models”
Download the article on “5 Webinar LABs Models.”

During the session, get to experience the “5 Webinar LABs Models.”
