    Google Meet is rolling out this week as free for everyone who has a Google account.  Zoom has been a go-to & is really easy to use for those unfamiliar. 

    Here are Resources for Virtual Training Design and Facilitation from ATDhttps://www.td.org/virtual-training.

    I'm also posting resources, everything from Learning to Leadership to HR, on my LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/in/katieryanfotiadis).  Feel free to connect with me there & keep checking back. As I research relevant solutions & resources to help with a remote workforce, I'll continue to share (look at my posts for quite a few so far).  There's even a template for Remote work Guidelines that I'll attach here.  It may be helpful to you and your team. Feel free to alter for your organization’s needs.

    Hope the LinkedIn posts are helpful and if there is something else you are looking for, let me know and I'll add it to my research list.

    We rely heavily on CDC resources. They have been a great, credible foundation for our learning programs. We've made animated gifs and videos using Vyond, and they have been well recieved.

    We're interested in Vyond - would love to hear more about that tool. How quickly can you create? Pros/cons?

    Open Sesame is providing free eLearning courses through June 15th (I think that's the date). They have curated lists for COVID-specific training as well as topics such as working remotely and managing remote workers, managing through stress, etc.

    We are looking at offering some of this content to our corporate office managers who are leading remote staff for the first time, and also some content for our senior living community managers who are managing their staff through very stressful circumstances. We've been working to gain buy-in on buying some off the shelf content for our managers specifically, and I think this will give us a great opportunity to do a pilot and help get some feedback that can help our case.

    Many training leaders I'm talking with are thinking through reopen plans and what in-house TD looks like moving forward.

    Can they take in the same number of people for orientation or is their space limited and they'll have to do more sessions to accommodate the same number of new hires?

    Will their regular in-house training schedule be disrupted by more working from home, space limitations for social distancing within classrooms, etc.?

    What future training can switch to online courses, live virtual or a blend?

    What other questions are you hearing or considering?
