A Free Facilitator's Guide to Live Online Learning

Via Clive Shepherd

Live Online Learning - A Facilitator’s Guide

This free e-book issued by Onlignment, explores (55 pages):

  1. Whys and wherefores
  2. Planning your session
  3. Communicating with voice and live video
  4. Communicating using images and text
  5. Sharing resources
  6. Building in interactivity
  7. Building up to the session
  8. Facilitating the session
  9. Following up

To download the e-book you need to sign-up and subscribe to Onlignment's occasional emails (or newsletter), but you can unsubscribe any time you like.

If you are lost about live online learning (or facilitating live online learning sessions), or using what, when and how, this e-book will serve you well. Though, I would have liked to see more relevant visual illustrations, examples and diagrams to spice up this e-book.

I suppose by using less visuals, the e-book has a longer life-cycle. Also, the explanations and tips will trigger us to visualize and use our imagination. But, if we are totally new to online facilitation, I am not sure our imaginative visualization will serve us well :)
