Virtual training has become the norm due to the pandemic that swept across the globe in 2020. Most classroom training sessions had to be moved online, with instructors using virtual tools such as Zoom, Webex, Teams, and others to conduct the sessions.
But has the transition been smooth? Have the instructors and participants faced challenges while attending the virtual sessions? The answer is “Yes.”
To start with, some trainers went about replicating the classroom experience in a virtual environment, creating a sort of fatigue for the participants. There have been technical glitches while conducting the sessions. Several activities, such as group discussions conducted in a face-to-face situation, have not worked well in the virtual environment. In addition to this, we have come across some overly enthusiastic participants who use the chat window to continuously chat or pose questions that disturb a session’s flow.
