‘Live & Online’ – Virtual, Instructor-Led Training (VILT)

Virtual Training Programme Delivery

Virtual, instructor-led training (VILT) is one of the fastest growing methods of internet-based learning delivery. Increases in bandwidth and collaboration software technologies have promoted VILT to a practical and inviting solution for reaching widely dispersed learners efficiently and cost-effectively.

Virtual, instructor-led training (VILT) is increasingly becoming the learning mode of choice for customers that need:

  • To reduce (or eliminate) the number of car/plane journeys travelling to training venues to cut down on carbon emissions
  • A practical approach to train a group of geographically spread team members with similar developmental needs
  • To Reduce (or eliminate completely) the cost for travel, accommodation and equipment rental associated with in-person training
  • To reduce time out of the office for travel
  • To deliver ongoing learning in bite-sized sessions/modules as part of a blended learning journey balanced with other work-life activities
  • Increased convenience where attendees can choose where they would like to participate in training courses – whether they are at home, in the office, or on their mobile devices

Utilising video technology and over 35 years of learning & development expertise, Xel Training’s sales, customer service & leadership skills programmes are all available ‘live & online’ via our virtual classroom solution.

Virtual Platform

Our platform of choice is Zoom, as we feel it most effectively replicates a physical classroom environment, keeping attendees more engaged. We also work with customers across a multitude of other platforms (including Adobe Connect, Webex, Teams amongst others).

Using the Zoom video conferencing platform, we have developed our virtual learning programmes to ensure high engagement and replicate the benefits of a live face to face training experience whether that be delivered as an open programme or in-company tailored solution.

Our virtual training solutions are led by highly skilled facilitators with each module consisting of either, one or two, 3-hour sessions using Zoom video conferencing, making the content more easily digestible and reducing the time away from the workplace.

Each ‘live & online’ virtual training programme give participants a live training experience that replicates a physical classroom together with the following:

  • Expert virtual trainer presentations delivered in highly focused sessions
  • The ability to ask questions during sessions
  • Virtual & interactive breakout groups during sessions for group work and exercises

The training delivery method is virtual however the learning is very real. All participants are live and connected in an immersive, engaging online interface. All they need is a connected device, access to the internet, and a comfortable environment that is conducive to effective and focused learning.
