4 Types of Content to Share at your Virtual Workshop.

Virtual setup has taken the world by storm. It has played a prominent role in the mental evolution of the human mind and widened its perspective.


There was a time when people used to rely a lot on in-person conversations. Nobody had ever thought of embracing the virtual setup till everything became digitalized, and people started understanding the importance of Virtual structure.


By virtual setup, I mean, Virtual conferences, meetings, exhibitions, webinars, and workshops. A lot of time and money can be saved with the virtual structure, and life also becomes hassle-free.


Virtual Workshop


It is an online classroom-style arrangement for training and professional growth, supported by best-in-class professionals.


4 types of content to share at your virtual workshop

· Asking the attendees to fill out the virtual form for registration, which bears the sponsor's logos, highlights the sponsor's work and brings them into the spotlight.


· List the resources required by participants that they might like to keep handy.


· Directing the attendees on how to submit questions and when/how they will be answered.

2. Interactive sessions


Ø Arranging question and answer sessions to clarify attendees' doubts will also enhance their participation and make it an interactive affair.

3.  Download material from the resource center


 A resource center is a place that gathers and organizes information and material like web-based resources, databases, and accessible websites, audio/visuals material.


The idea behind this is to give its participants the feel of a library as if they are sitting in person there, and it is more of a modern-day library offering multimedia tools.


4. Include Gamification


Gamification means adding games like an online community and a learning management system to increase participation. The idea behind Gamification is to interact, coordinate and share. Some examples of Gamification are: -


· Digital games like puzzles, crosswords, quizzes, board games, and word games can be included to boost participation and make learning more fun.


· Building creative assignments like self-shot videos, podcasts, and blogs and asking learners to share their posts on their social media profiles. Learners with maximum likes, views, and engagement will be considered champions.


· Rewards and recognition strategy


This strategy has always played a prominent role in motivating the participants, especially if there is any monetary benefit associated with it, like incentives and commissions on the sales of a product.


· Providing real-time Feedback


Through Gamification, participants can be given feedback that can provide them with a sense of direction and guide them to work on their shortcomings.
