This is a half-day train-the-trainer learning plan for an introduction to Adobe Connect remote training.
Capitalizing on the the teaching and presentations skills schoolteachers possess, this learning plan introduces experienced teachers to the unique capabilities and potential challenges to setting up and doing remote training through a virtual classroom. The lesson plan specifically addresses doing that with Adobe Connect, but the general functions and philosophies found in this course will apply for doing any remote training through online telepresence and virtual training systems.
