Karen Melhuish made the following post, with the following request to share your wisdome and your experiences:
"You may have seen a number of online workshops - (sometimes called web conferences or webinars) - offered by Enabling e-Learning, VPL-D and other groups over the last few months.
Online workshops offer another pathway for learners that can be efficient and flexible (meeting in your pyjamas, anyone?;-), but the distance and lack of face-to face can also present particular challenges to facilitators, as well as participants.
The big question is: how do you design and facilitate an online workshop in ways that support learners to achieve the goals?
Hazel Owen (VPL-D) and myself have decided to kick-start this work and offer this shared Google doc as a starting point for sharing ideas.
Feel free to add in...
