AMA’s Virtual Training Certificate

Prepare, develop and deliver highly engaging online learning experiences

The demand for live, online e-learning is rapidly increasing—but many trainers aren’t well equipped to meet its unique challenges. It’s no small task to juggle course content, speak and listen well, show visuals, respond to chat messages, avoid silences, poll participants and manage interruptions and technical problems. The unprepared can lose audience members in the first few minutes of a live online course, helpless to get them back. This course explores best practices in developing and delivering successful and engaging live online learning. Learn how to identify performance standards and course objectives, and plan learning experiences that help ensure participant success. Know how to prepare yourself and your participants for the online experience, maintain energy and engagement, and manage the complexities of facilitation and technology. You’ll discover what steps to take between sessions, what to do for post-course follow-up and much more. In addition, you’ll get hands-on experience delivering in a live online environment and receive expert and peer feedback.
