When preparing content to be delivered online, whether in a synchronous or asynchronous format, you will need to have a plan for delivering the content. You will want to not only provide information (the training content), but you will also want to provide the opportunity for participants to interact with and explore the content through learning activities.
Generally, you will want to create some type of introduction that will include the learning outcomes and outline any expectations for course participants (e.g. time commitment, due dates for assignments, facilitation support available, etc.). You might also want to include a brief introduction to the technology if you are using a technology that may be new to your audience. Depending on your audience's familiarity with online training or if you are using a new technology for the first time, you might even want to hold a tutorial to introduce your training and give participants a chance to learn the features and practice. As we mentioned earlier, FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) about your online training are helpful resources.
