Organizing before using LiveMeeting as a virtual classroom

7 Jan

A virtual classroom has numerous advantages over a classroom – for example, no scheduling or travelling issues.

However, a trainer needs to prepare before using LiveMeeting as a virtual classroom. Here is my do list:

  • Test audio/video – confirm with learners that they have headsets etc …
  • Upload material in the Handouts section – inform learners where the handouts are and whether they need to print/read the material before class
  • Carry out a dry-run – have your material ready and run through whether your videos etc … work ok in the LiveMeeting environment.

The preparation before class will payoff during class.

Here are some more tips on getting organized before a virtual lesson:
