Learn how to deliver successful video-based presentations on Zoom, Webex, and more. Practice online with feedback.
- 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
- Optimize your delivery with the right tech setup
- Easily identify areas for improvement via mock video-conferencing exercises 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.
Presentations over video 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.
Practice what you learn
In this course, you'll learn the fundamentals of presenting virtually and then practice what you learn in a realistic online video conferencing exercise.
Through online classes, you'll learn how to create and design an engaging presentation, set up the tech to look your best, use hand gestures and storytelling to enhance your message, and more.
After learning the theory, you'll have the unique opportunity to practice, improve and build your confidence in the virtual presentation exercise.
Deliver effective virtual presentations
This blended course is made up of three key parts to accelerate your learning:
Learn fundamental techniques and strategies for giving video-based presentations through articles, videos, and case studies.
After completing the classes, you can practice your skills by presenting in an interactive exercise, which mimics video conferencing software such as Zoom, Webex, Teams, and more.
Every time you practice, you'll receive automated feedback on your dialogue and be able to play back your performance for self-evaluation.
Throughout this course, you'll get to watch real-life video examples of the skills being taught, including how to deliver good eye contact, avoid distractions and keep your presentation engaging.
Learn from these videos and transfer their skills to your own communication.
How do the exercises work?
Practice your virtual presenting skills on a webpage that looks and feels like a video conferencing platform - no additional download required. Upload your own slides into the exercise for the most realistic practice.
While delivering your speech, your voice and delivery will be analyzed, 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.
Practice video presentations in the VirtualSpeech practice exercise. Answer audience questions, receive instant feedback on your performance, and watch yourself present on a video recording to identify areas for improvement.
Enable distractions while you present to really test your skills, such as mobile phones ringing and loud background noise.
Review the recorded audio and video to identify areas for improvement and track your progress with automated feedback, prompts, quizzes, and self-evaluation.
