Virtual Classroom: Step by Step Process to Design it

Posted by The Virtual Training Team on February 12th, 2020

We know better than most that simply lifting a slide-deck from a face-to-face (F2F) workshop and presenting it in a virtual one just doesn’t deliver the best results. So, where do you start in building a workshop specifically for virtual delivery?

Here we describe 8 steps that we follow in building our own virtual workshop:
1. Start with the end in mind
2. Brainstorm Content
3. Decide on your gigs
4. Work out your gig processes
5. Bring your gigs to life
6. Link it all together
7. Create the introduction
8. Create the slides and materials

1. Start with the end in mind:
As always, purpose, purpose, purpose. What do you want your participants to think, feel, do or know as a result of this workshop?
Visit for more details here.

2. Brainstorm Content:
What are your key messages that you want participants to take away from your session? What skills, models or processes might you include?
Visit our blog for more details.

3. Decide on your gigs:
A gig is a chunk of content, learning or process. In this step, you’ve got to be ruthless. Decide on what must stay in and what can be dropped. What can be explored in ways beyond the virtual workshop, through pre-work and referencing etc.
Visit our blog for more details.

4. Work out your gig processes:
How will each gig be achieved? What processes, materials and activities will deliver this gig in the most efficient way? Here is where you can work out your timings.

5. Bring your gigs to life:
Here you can ask yourself what stories, examples, questions, demos, imagery or science will add appropriate flair to each gig?
Visit our blog for more details.

6. Link it all together:
Think about sequencing. It’s time to double check your timings and order. Decide what needs to be said to link each gig to the next and fuel the overall purpose of your virtual workshop.
Visit our blog for more details.

7. Create the introduction:
One of the last things to do is to consider how you will kick off this virtual workshop. Remember, it needs to start with a bang!
Visit our blog for more details.

8. Create the slides and materials:
Finally, you can go to PowerPoint. It’s time to pull everything together into a seamless, flowing, simple to follow, slide-deck with extra materials. You shouldn’t be going to PowerPoint any earlier than this!
