April 17, 2014—Provo, UT—VitalSmarts, an innovator in corporate training and leadership development, today announced its award-winning Crucial Conversations™ classroom course is now available online via live, synchronous learning.
The company launched this first course using its new VitalSmarts Virtual Classroom™ technology, a highly collaborative learning platform using Adobe® Connect™ and MeetingOne conferencing solutions. Plans to offer more courses on the same platform are currently underway.
Courses in the VitalSmarts Virtual Classroom provide the same award-winning content and skills as the traditional classroom courses and are ideal for learners who have limited travel budgets, work in remote locations, or who simply want to access training in the location of their choice and in shorter intervals.
“We live in an exciting time when the technology available for virtual, synchronous training allows for innovations that aren’t available in the classroom,” said Andrew Shimberg, CEO at VitalSmarts. “We’ve attempted to transform the virtual learning experience for participants – just like we did in our traditional classroom model.”
The Crucial Conversations Virtual Classroom provides participants with flexibility to attend training in five, two-hour learning sessions that are delivered over the course of multiple days. In comparison, the traditional Crucial Conversations course is two full days in the physical classroom.
Unique features of the VitalSmarts Virtual Classroom include: one-on-one interaction with fellow training participants as if you’re in the same room; VitalSmarts’ award-winning training videos; chat and hand-raise capabilities; instant quizzing and polling; and easily downloadable digital participant materials.
