As the world has adapted to remote working, the way we deliver presentations has also changed. Most people now deliver presentations virtually through video conference calls, online meetings or webinars.
This requires a unique skill set for delivery compared to in-person presentations and meetings. For example, adapting to a lack of audience feedback and body language cues on virtual calls can be difficult.
To address this and provide an effective way to improve these skills, we’ve created a course that combines best practices for virtual presenting with a realistic simulation to practice in. You'll learn key tips, and then practice, improve and build confidence in a virtual presentation simulator.
Learn with a self-paced course and practice on-demand, as often as you like.
This Virtual Presentations course teaches you the fundamentals for presenting virtually, covering topics from how to set up the tech to look your best, to the benefits of using hand gestures and storytelling.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to confidently deliver presentations over video to a virtual audience of any size.
There are two main parts to this blended course:
Practice your presentation on a secure webpage that looks and feels like a video conferencing platform.
While delivering your speech, the simulation will analyse your voice and delivery, providing feedback when you’ve finished on aspects such as hesitation words, audience perception and confidence.
At the end of the presentation and throughout, answer text and audio-based questions from the virtual audience. You can also load in custom questions for a more targeted Q&A session.
Enable distractions while you present, such as mobile phones ringing and loud background noise, to test your virtual presentation skills further.
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.
Both the online classes and simulation run through a web browser, so no additional software or download is required. Unlike other VirtualSpeech soft skills training courses, there is no VR element, so a VR headset is not required.
The simulation has been tested across multiple browsers and runs smoothly on Google Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, and Edge.
