Session Title

From F2F to VLE: Converting Your Live Presentation for an Online Audience

Description

Virtual Learning Environments are becoming more common (and often more preferred) for both classroom and conference settings. You don’t need to completely scrap your existing face-to-face programs or “reinvent the wheel” in order to take your presentation to a distance-learning audience. Learn basic, practical ways you can take your current face-to-face lessons, lectures or programs and make them both attractive and useful for the virtual world. Participants will look at tools and options for presenting online, discuss techniques for effective virtual-world teaching, and analyze some samples of online presentations to determine what works and what doesn’t. At the conclusion of this program, participants will understand the differences between live and virtual learning environments, as well as the differences between synchronous and asynchronous environments (and ways those differences might affect a presentation); learn about basic software options for preparing online presentations; increase their confidence in presenting online programs.
