One of the key gaps in virtual and webinar training is how to replicate the hands-on and tactile training in handling equipment, raw materials, shop floor physical facilities, processes and procedures, and face-to-face co-mingling. Most webinars and virtual sessions are used for presentations and for conveying knowledge. However, these are inadequate in dealing with helping learners and trainers gain the necessary hands-on experiences.  In this webinar, we will share case studies and pilot projects on “hands-on learning in remote learning.” 

Topics cover:
  • What challenges do we encounter with the implementation of hands-on training in webinars and remote learning? 
  • How can you transform these tactile elements of hands-on training - equipment, materials, processes, assembly, maintenance, co-working, problem-solving, and troubleshooting - into remote training?
  • What are the steps to explore, test, pilot, and roll out for hands-on training using remote and virtual tools and other software options?
  • Learn from three case studies and pilot projects: 
    • Equipment training and maintenance
    • Field troubleshooting and problem-solving  logistics operations
    • Co-working and co-learning with customers on defect resolution
