Ten Ideas for Exercises in the Virtual Classroom

If you have either attended or facilitated training in a virtual classroom you know that maintaining a high level of interactivity is key to keeping participants engaged.  Here are ten ideas for exercises to try in your next virtual classroom session:

1. Discuss a picture
Display a picture that illustrates a concept you are teaching.  Ask the audience to call out or type in chat what they observe in the picture.  You can do this as an icebreaker by showing an image of an optical illusion then ask or poll people on what they observe in the image.

2. Discuss a video
Just like in a face-to-face setting, it’s good use multi-media to add variety to the classroom.  The best practice for video is to load it and play it within your virtual classroom, rather than try to stream it live.  If you want to use a video from Youtube, try using the Youtube Downloader tool to get a version of the movie that you can upload into your classroom.  Short 1-2 minute videos work best.
