Tips for delivering a synchronous presentation

originally posted on April 16, 2015

1) Visuals and Voice: limit text but do not let visuals distract from learning. Visuals should be relevant, appropriate, and support objectives.

2) Create interactions: have participants do something every 2 to 5 minutes to support learner attention. These activities should have a purpose and support objectives.

3) Whiteboards:trainers as well as participants can use the whiteboard. Use the annotation tools.

4) Chat: chat room messages. Good for open ended questions, technical help.

5) Breakout rooms: can be used for small group activity. It should be structured, a leader should be assigned.

6) Polling: good for feedback, question and answer. Best for questions with 2 to 5 possible responses.
