According to the Training Magazine’s 2015 Industry Report, only 46% of training is now delivered in a traditional classroom setting by a stand-and-deliver instructor, a significant decrease over the past 15 years.

During a recent webinar hosted by Adobe Cynthia Clay, an expert on blended learning and author of “Great Webinars: Create Interactive Learning That Is Captivating, Informative, and Fun”, shared powerful engagement and interaction techniques to be used during online learning programs. She discussed several impactful strategies that maximize engagement in virtual classrooms.

The focus of the 7 strategies covered during the seminar fell in to three main categories:


People – How to go about ensuring all instructional designers and facilitators are well equipped to adminster their virtual practice
