by Viv Cole on May 28, 2012

On 30 May I’ll be chairing an eLearning Network webinar on Ten things you always wanted to know about live online learning but were afraid to ask. I’m pleased to introduce three expert practitioners Mike Collins of Directline @mikecollins007, Phil Green of Olignment @philipgreen and Matt Turner of Brightwave @LiveTimeLearn. Looks like it will be a great session, be there if you can: register and ask questions via You can also follow the action via #elnevent

Of the many questions that people sent in the 10 that seemed most representative were:

  1. What is the best way to start a session while waiting for people to log-in?
  2. What proportion of time should be spent on socialising participants?
  3. Tips on how you keep control of the event and ensure participation
  4. How can breakout sessions be made easier to set up/ run and manage to keep learners engaged?
  5. How do you know what you’re doing is working with your audience?
  6. What virtual classroom technology would you recommend?
  7. What factors influence the success or failure of virtual classrooms in terms of effectiveness?
  8. How effective is virtual classrooms training in comparison with traditional classroom training?
  9. How do you change the learning culture to treat VCT as seriously as ILT?
  10. What tips do you have for bringing a buzz to online learning?
