Virtual Classroom Facilitation Dream Team

by DarleneChristopher on May 27, 2009

The content and complexity of your web conference will determine the facilitation team needed. In general, you need a facilitator and a producer to carry out key tasks such as:
 

 

Facilitator Role

    • Main speaker, subject matter expert.

 

  • Advances slides. Engages audience verbally.

 

 

  • Not active in chat. Comments verbally on what others type.

 

 

  • Comments on poll results.

 

 

  • Leads and debriefs exercises.

 

Producer Role

    • Web conferencing expert. May or may not be familiar with subject.

 

  • Explains technical features. May kick off and conclude the session.

 

 

  • Active in chat. Engages audience by posting and responding to questions/comments. Prompts facilitator to address chat questions. Types key messages to reinforce learning as facilitator speaks.

 

 

  • Opens/closes polls.

 

 

  • Explains how exercises will run.
