Overview

At the beginning of 2020, most people had never even heard the word “webinar” or had much experience with virtual learning. And then COVID-19 happened.

By now, we’ve all had nearly two years to experience the good, the bad and the downright ugly in online sessions. So now, when we’re invited to another online learning event or meeting, a lot of people think “Not Another F*cking Webinar!!”

Over the past decade, I’ve compiled a list of just about every mistake you can make in the virtual space, and nearly everything that can go wrong—because I've probably made those mistakes or had those things go sideways on me during a session.

I’ve also assembled a list of Pro Tips I’ll share in this book as well as my “ARM and a LEG” principles, which I’ve developed to ensure virtual sessions deliver maximum value to everyone—participants, sponsors, and you!

This valuable book contains tips and tricks for presenters and anyone attending virtual meetings or learning events. So, let’s get going. The sooner we start, the sooner you’re going to be a webinar professional!

Description

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced us all to become web presenters or participants – or both. Whether you're attending Teams meetings with co-workers, the monthly Zoom meeting of your garden club, or presenting online learning to others, the need to understand and properly use webinar software is now more important than ever. We also know many companies will continue to incorporate virtual learning into their employee training programs long after Covid-19 becomes endemic. This means adopting best practices and becoming more professional in the way we host or show up in these virtual connections. This book delivers the details on how to design and facilitate learning in the virtual space. Dale introduces a number of best practices when working in the virtual arena, and his "ARM and a LEG" principles are designed to provide a comprehensive guide to ensure your virtual material is of the highest quality. Whether you're a presenter or a participant, this book outlines the building blocks of creating an educational, informative, and engaging webinar.
