Though technological advances have made the delivery of webinars possible in real time, there is a lot of human effort that goes into creating and delivering an impactful webinar.
Tips To Create a Highly Effective Webinar
- The first step into creating a virtual presentation for a webinar is to create a suitable blueprint, which details the flow that the presentation is going to take. As per the flow, start creating content.
- Textual content for a virtual presentation should be crisp and to-the-point. Like a classroom presentation, the text should not just mimic what the speaker will eventually say. Keywords and not sentences should be used.
- But unlike a classroom presentation, where the presenter can talk and explain a slide for at least 2-3 minutes, a virtual presentation has to have a slide movement every 20-40 seconds to keep the audience interested. This can include slide transitions, annotations or section highlights – all relevant to what the learner needs to know.
- Graphics are a big part of a virtual presentation and cut down textual matter by lot. Use them liberally to provide suitable context or ideas to the learner.
- Graphics that need to be explained like graphs or charts should to be explained only to the suitable point of detail. Going into too many details will cause the learner’s attention to flounder. Visual clues like one-word descriptors, figures or percentages can be provided to help learners understand the graph or chart quickly.
