What is Virtual Instructor-Led Training?Virtual Instructor-led Training (VILT) is when an instructor facilitates a training session for a group of learners or an individual over a virtual setting. Similar to traditional instructor-led training, VILT is synchronous, collaborative, and happens in real-time. Learning professionals elect to make the switch to virtual classrooms for a number of reasons: to save costs, accommodate a remote audience, give flexibility, or even to harness new technologies. As with most of our learning technologies, we believe that virtual instructor-led training is best when used as part of a blended learning program - mixing different learning styles and activities for the best results.
Types of Virtual Instructor-Led Training?Virtual instructor-led training (VILT) is taking the material from traditional instructor-led training programs and using them in a virtual setting. The most important aspect is that the learners have real-time access to the instructor for feedback and discussion. You can make your virtual instructor-led training engaging for your learners by including activities throughout the training session. Switching between lectures, discussions, activities, and hands-on practices are the best ways to keep your learners engaged and able to retain the information. VILT can be held in a few different ways:
- Webinar – Online through video conferencing
- One-to-One – One learner to one instructor
- Small-Group – A small group of learners with one instructor in a classroom setting
- Lecture – A large group of learners with one instructor
- Workshop – Hands-on training
- Virtual Classrooms – Online meetings with immersive technology
