How to Use Web Conferencing for Training Purposes

February 24th, 2015 by Beth Jackson Leave a reply »

If you need to train a large group of people but most of you cannot meet in one location, then you need to consider web conferencing to train your future employees. Saving time and money on travel expenses, training future employees with web conferencing services is the new way to hold meetings and share information for the 21st century. Below are a few ways that you can use web conferencing to properly train anyone.




While you may need to train your employees, some training exercises may work better offline than online. Thus, consider creating interactive modules and/or recording training videos for your employees to watch and learn how to perform the jobs they will be assigned to properly. From there, you can host a question and answer session to answer any questions that your employees may have regarding their training, their positions, and the company at large. It is a great way to get to know your employees a little bit better, while clearing up any confusion regarding their training. Use this as an extension to regular training, and your employees will perform better and stronger right at the start!


Show presentations


Perhaps you have a neat little presentation that you want to show off to your employees. If this is the case, then use web conferencing to showcase a presentation that will help your employees to understand their job a little bit better. It is a great opportunity to explain the job further, speak with them all one-on-one (without having to be in the room with them), and ensure that everyone is on the right page before training ends. Combine this with our Q&A tip above, and you have a winning combination that will make certain that your employees know everything needed before training ends.


Open forum


This is a little similar to the Q&A tip, except this will give your employees an opportunity to speak with you one-on-one about anything regarding the job. This includes speaking to you directly about what they enjoy about training as well as what they dislike about it – which will help you to improve your training better than ever going forward. It is also a great way to learn a little bit about your employees as well, which will help you to assist them on the job anyway that you can.


Guest speaker


Do you know of a compelling guest speaker that would benefit your employees? The next time you do web conferencing for training purposes, have the guest speaker speak to your employees regarding any tips or critiques that can help them to perform their job better. Guest speakers are also a great way to boost morale and get people more excited than ever about starting their new job. Besides, training can be exhausting to your employees; and if they have weeks of training and need a pick-me-up, a guest speaker will help with this. If the guest speaker can inspire just one person to do their job to the best of their ability, it will be worth it!
