Virtual Classroom Design and Development Services

Virtual classroom technology. Widely adopted. Yet its best features are still greatly underused. We'll make sure your virtual classroom course stands out from the crowd.


Virtual Learning. A diminished experience?

When participants come together from across the web, the virtual classroom can feel like a diminished experience for learners and trainers alike.

This is because the virtual classroom lacks a key element that is vibrant and strong in any face-to-face classroom session: social presence.

In fact, social presence is just one of several key elements you need to consider and address when designing and building for the virtual classroom.


The typical approach to using the virtual classroom

Too many people believe that the success of a virtual classroom session relies on a deck of PowerPoint slides and the sheer personality of the trainer.

Put the participants in listen-only mode. Let the trainer work the magic of his or her personality. Open the chat for questions at the end. Job done.

Little or no preparation required. Satisfied 'customers' every time. Cheap as chips to deliver. If only!

Typical VC approach

More than PowerPoint and Talk

If all you are aiming for is an informational webinar-style event, the approach described above might just work. If you want to create a session that seriously teaches your learners something and enables some authentic practice as part of that session, then PowerPoint and talk is definitely what you don't need.

PowerPoint and Talk

Planning, Preparation and Plenty of Practice

Using our unique analysis, design and development frameworks, we can work with you to design and build a virtual classroom session that builds social presence, keeps learners engaged and actively participating in the session and (most important) provides meaningful practice, using the skills and knowledge being covered in the session.
