How to Market Your Online Event

How to Facilitate Live Online Training – Techniques for Adult Learning Engagement

After two years of research on what their audience liked and disliked about online training, staff at Hunter Douglas Window Fashions reached a new level of engagement. They have broken down the process into pre-, during- and post-event phases with defined roles and outcomes from the training team, presenters and the audience. With the Mediasite webcasting platform as their technology engine, they built an online training program, complete with LMS integration. From refresher courses to product launches, HR training to internal company meetings, over the last two years they have trained over 8,500 people via live streaming webcasts.
Traci Adolph, Manager of Training at Hunter Douglas, will discuss the online training program, including and answer your most pressing questions.

Free Webinar: "Are All Classroom Capture Systems the Same?"

John DeAngelo, director of educational technology services at the University of California San Francisco, has put almost every lecture capture brand to the test as one of the first college-level CIOs in higher education. After outfitting hundreds of classrooms, and almost a decade-long deep dive into what works, he has created replicable, future-proof academic spaces that maximize the experience of faculty, students and staff. He will discuss why he chose to implement Mediasite at two different universities on both coasts and how that decision radically impacted faculty feedback and student outcomes.
