Alexander Arvidsson – Talking to myself(?) – lessons learned from presenting online – YouTube

If you had asked me in March if it was possible to speak or conduct training – with high quality – via the internet I would have said “sure, it’s doable, but it’s different and it’s going pale in comparison to an in-person delivery. I would avoid it.”

Then the world went off the rails.

Suddenly everyone had to adapt to being in quarantine or lockdown and not going to any conferences or trainings for the foreseeable future. I was forced to figure out a way to conduct technical training using tools that I didn’t believe in, by to people that I couldn’t see – without it sucking.
I had to figure out how to position myself to be able to use my hands, how to seamlessly switch between PowerPoint and the Azure portal and how to gauge my students’ information retention – all in about a week. It turns out that there are a lot more hours in a week than the 40 most people are used to working.

This session walks through what I’ve learned from speaking and conducting training over the internet the last few months – both what works well and what … Doesn’t.
