Why Remote Learning?
COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted businesses around the world. Organizations did not get enough time to prepare themselves to handle this situation. For the first few months, strategies were driven by panic and followed by finding quick fixes.
The training domain was no exception. Some organizations simply started delivering classroom training programs over web meetings tools, just to realize that learner engagement has gone down, and their classroom trainers are not prepared for an online training delivery. While others took the presumably safer route and decided to wait for things to go back to normal and then continue with their existing classroom training model.
However, today, most of us have accepted the fact that remote learning is the new normal and is here to stay even beyond COVID- 19. The sooner we adapt to it, the easier it would be for an organization to sustain in these changed market dynamics. The good thing is that this modality has been around for quite some time and hence, there are set practices and tools available to make it effective. It would also help to know that there are companies which have successfully figured out effective business models to work around it. Lamcon Finance & Management Services Pvt. Ltd, a leading provider of financial training programs, is one such success story where their core business model of Instructor-Led Training (ILT) delivery was successfully transitioned to a Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) model.
Tips to convert ILT to VILT
Here are a few things they kept in mind as they converted their ILT programs to VILT:
- Virtual learning is not classroom training delivered over a web meeting
- Learner engagement is the key
- Explore technology to deliver better learning experience
