For virtual training to work it should match an organisation's strategy, vision, and goals. But, how do you know the experience will be right? How do you know if it will deliver a great learning experience? What does effective and engaging virtual training look like and how would you be able to tell the difference between a great experience and a bad one? Virtual training will be effective when it reaches the intended, dispersed learners; occurs at the right time(s); and requires minimal effort once a roster is provided (the logistics, technology, communications, and evaluations all occur in a timely manner).
