As a result of the pandemic, many professionals find themselves presenting to teams, clients and others using teleconferencing software such as Zoom, Go to Training, Microsoft Teams etc. However, presentation design and delivery for a live presentation is much different than for a virtual presentation. It is not enough to simply take a prepared live presentation and just do the same thing in a virtual setting. Current research shows that this will result in a lack of both clarity and participant engagement. In fact, virtual presentations require more instructional design and preparation than a live presentation.
A virtual presentation must be re-designed to promote thoughtful use of virtual engagement tools such as audience feedback buttons, polling questions, breakout rooms and shared screens. The presenters themselves must prepare differently than for a live presentation including setting up proper camera framing, audio levels and lighting.
This webinar will discuss:
- Virtual presentations vs live presentations room – significant differences
- Virtual presentations – best practices
- How to effectively use the virtual presentation engagement tools
Great presentation. Garth did an excellent job breaking down simple tips to help improve our virtual presentations. Super useful. I also liked the fact that additional tips and information were shared via PDFs to provide participants with additional information should they need it.
I very much appreciated your practical insights and your energy today.
It was a very informative and interesting session
Very practical, and excellent of Garth to provide links to tools and to stay for questions!
