Ofserv trainings and workshops are available via our Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) format.
The Technology platform utilized for VILT allows the Facilitator to share screen, video, and audio in the training session, while delegates use the chat or question and answer options to interact with the trainer. Delegates are also able to raise their “electronic hand” for them to communicate through their microphone.
VILT is one of the fastest-growing methods of internet-based learning delivery. Steady increases in bandwidth capacity and collaboration software technologies have promoted VILT to a practical and effective solution for reaching widely dispersed learners efficiently and cost-effectively.
VILT is transforming the way millions of people learn, both on and off the job. Increasingly, businesses are employing it as part of broader blended solutions for training and development. Its use enables organizations to provide valuable learning experiences for employees, customers and channel partners while avoiding travel and lodging costs and valuable time spent away from the job.
Our VILT programs provide an engaging experience in which participants can connect with the content and interact with both the instructor and other classmates. Successful implementations, visible through high retention rates and satisfied learners, demonstrate that VILT delivery can be both effective and efficient
Other features used in our VILTs and workshops include the virtual breakout room and collaboration applications such as MENTIMETER and MIRO. Breakout rooms allow one to split training participates into up to 50 separate rooms. The training organizer and the trainer can choose to split the participants of the training into the individual virtual rooms automatically or manually, or they can allow participants to select and enter breakout sessions as they please.
In these breakout rooms, the trainer assigns activities to groups that must be completed collaboratively while the instructor monitors each attendee’s participation in activities and simulations while attending to questions when they arise.
The organizer and trainer can switch between all the rooms at any time, while participants in the breakout rooms are also able to share their screen to carry out their syndication activities.
Benefits of VILT
Reduced cost– Due to the nature of VILT, travel and lodging costs can be reduced or eliminated completely.
Convenience- VILT students can choose when and where they would like to participate in training courses – whether they are at home, in the office, or on their mobile devices.
Increased capacity and scalability– VILT can accommodate large numbers of students without increasing the number of materials or space needed in typical classroom settings.
Increased diversity– Because of the reach that VILT provides, trainees and instructors from a variety of cultures and geographic backgrounds can participate simultaneously further enriching the learning experience
