Just over 10 years now.
By default really. Someone left the company and I was asked to step up, and I’ve done it ever since!
A lot of people call us to have us walk them through the entire process. It’s nervewracking to host a program for the first time, so we field a lot of questions about the full process.
I think it’s human nature not to fully read the instructions we send out, so people find themselves scrambling at the last minute. That and not testing the technology before the presentation to make sure they meet the system requirements.
We get calls all of the time 1 minute before a live webinar where people don’t know how to login or where to go, or they forgot their pin code.
Not for what we do. We use a pretty basic version of virtual events. Our materials aren’t something that call for revolutionary tricks. Although if anyone has any cool, new ideas, we’d love to hear them!
I think we’ll obviously see a lot more learning going online, and hopefully, we’ll find ways to make it more engaging and interactive.
Online learning is usually less expensive, so it seems like organizations will be more willing to pay for training.
For us, it’s the savings we can pass on to our clients. They can have 60 people listen in on our programs and everyone can get the continuing education they need instead of taking 60 separate programs.
