Virtual Classroom

Bring Leadership Training to Life in a Virtual World

The world has made a fast change to remote work. And that makes it the ideal time to pivot learning to the virtual classroom.

DDI’s virtual classroom brings your leaders together for engaging leadership development no matter where they are in the world. No matter the time or location, your leaders will meet live to learn from an instructor. They’ll practice skills together. And most importantly, they’ll build connections with each other.

Your leaders may be scattered across locations. But we can bring them together virtually to build one unified vision of leadership in your organization.

What is a Virtual Classroom?

A virtual classroom is unlike other types of online learning. It’s not a webinar. Nor is it a dry online course leaders can click through. Rather, the virtual classroom brings all the rich advantages of the traditional classroom into the virtual world. A certified facilitator leads the course via a live video conferencing platform.

Leaders engage in lively conversation. Participate in activities. Share whiteboards. And most importantly, connect with each other to practice skills.

In short, you can get the same results virtually as you can in the traditional classroom. Just minus the physical handshakes and travel costs.

Brush Up Your Virtual Facilitator Skills

Whether in a virtual or in-person classroom, every facilitator needs to be an engaging presenter. They need to know how to include everyone in the conversation, and guide them to higher skill levels.

But in a virtual environment, there are a few unique challenges. That’s why we developed the Facilitator Booster: Virtual Classroom, a session to help DDI-certified facilitators make the leap to the virtual world.
