Know how to design and deliver successful and memorable video presentations

Increase your confidence communicating online and feel more comfortable speaking in front of a virtual audience - whether it’s 2 people, 20, or 200

Use body language, eye contact, and hand gestures to enhance your message

Connect, engage and persuade your audience remotely with effective storytelling

Optimise your delivery with the right tech set up

Easily identify areas for improvement via mock video-conferencing simulations with instant feedback

As the world has adapted to remote working, the way we deliver presentations has changed too. Most people now have meetings, presentations, pitches and events virtually through video conference calls.

Virtual presentations require a unique skill set for delivery compared to in-person presentations and meetings. For example, you have to adapt to a lack of audience feedback and body language cues that you’d otherwise have from a real-life audience.

Course outcomes

With this Virtual Presentations course you’ll learn the fundamentals for presenting virtually, covering topics from creating and designing an engaging presentation, how to set up the tech to look your best, to the benefits of using hand gestures and storytelling to enhance your message.

You’ll learn key tips and best practices through video tutorials, case studies and text, and then you have the unique opportunity to practice, improve and build your confidence in our virtual presentation simulator.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to confidently deliver presentations over video to a virtual audience of any size.

Learn with a self-paced online course and practice on-demand, as often as you like.

Deliver effective virtual presentations

This blended course is made up of three key parts to accelerate your learning:

Learn online courses

Online classes

Learn fundamental techniques and strategies for giving video based presentations through articles, videos and case studies.

Practice in simulations

Virtual simulation

After completing the classes, you can practice your new skills by presenting in a realistic simulation, which mimics teleconferencing software such as Zoom, Webex, Teams, and more.

Improve with feedback

Feedback

Every time you use the simulations, you’ll receive instant feedback on your dialogue through AI and be able to playback your performance for self-evaluation.

Simulation overview

How does the simulation work?

Practice your virtual presenting skills on a secure webpage that looks and feels like a video conferencing platform - no additional download required. Upload your own slides into the simulation for the most realistic practice.

While delivering your speech, the simulation will analyse your voice and delivery, providing instant feedback when you’ve finished on aspects such as hesitation words, audience perception and confidence.

You can also practice thinking on your feet and answering questions from the virtual audience throughout your presentation or when you’ve finished speaking. You can even load in your own custom questions for a more targeted Q&A session.

Enable distractions while you present to really test your skills, such as mobile phones ringing and loud background noise.

Virtual presenting simulation

Practice video presentations in the VirtualSpeech simulation. Answer audience questions, receive instant feedback on your performance, and watch yourself present on a video recording to identify areas for improvement.

Review the recorded audio and video to identify areas for improvement and track your progress with AI feedback, prompts, quizzes, and self-evaluation.
