A LOLA is a Live Online Learning Activity that transforms boring webinars into dynamic interaction. In this walk-the-talk session, learn to increase and improve interactivity in your virtual classrooms through the use of five new types of LOLA.  Use textra games to add something extra to textual content on the screen. Use Assessment-Based Learning Activities to integrate diagnosis with just-in-time training. Use instructional magic to intrigue your participants into mindful learning. Combine storytelling techniques with the case method. Use optical illusions to encourage metaphorical exploration.

Join Tracy and Thiagi as they demonstrate and discuss these LOLA.
