Live Mixed Learning is now

Hybrid learning or live mixed learning happens when you involve onsite learners (in the room) as well as online learners (remote) at the same time.

This kind of learning works best when your delegates feel as if they are all together in the same training.

LISTEN BACK – Kassy LaBorie author of Producing Virtual Training explains how you can stop technology from getting in the way of great online learning experiences.

It is so critical that your virtual learners have their cameras switched on. I get my remote attendees to join the training early and I get them taking before the class starts.

I also like to enlist a co-facilitator to help with virtual training. The Lead-facilitator can work with the onsite learners and the co-facilitator ensures that remote learners are included.

You might also think about letting your online learners go first when you run exercises or ask questions.

So when you get feedback from learners, you want them to say something like: – “I really felt like I was in the room with the rest of the group! Thank you for making me feel included!”
