Sun, May 06 | 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM | Room: Ballroom 20A

Many organizations in today's global marketplace have a globally dispersed workforce and a rapidly changing business environment.

Since many knowledge workers are also mobile and tech savvy, moving training to the virtual classroom is a logical solution.

To convert training programs and develop new programs efficiently, the speaker developed a four-step model--- the PREP model---that provides a framework that can be used for both operational training and soft skills training. The session will cover key aspects of learning a virtual classroom platform, selecting a facilitation team, and planning content and logistics.
