Trainers and teachers alike are now using technology more than ever to teach, work, and learn. It’s no coincidence they’re also relying more and more on virtual options and technology add-ins to keep training fresh, fun, and engaging for learners.
Whether you are looking to add in a participant-focused model into your training program or making big changes to your content delivery, we want to help make your training a breeze! See for yourself this compilation of our favorite virtual training resources.
We absolutely cannot compile a list of our favorite training products without touting the talented partners The Bob Pike Group is lucky enough to work with! Our training team uses many of the products offered by the below partners, and we encourage you to take a look at their offerings, too.
C3 Softworks: Games
One word: Gamification. If you’re looking to add fun and learner engagement to your virtual training sessions, C3 Softworks has you covered with their customizable gaming software. Their catalog of training products include online and classroom games, online quizzes, virtual presentation and polling technology, and wireless and mobile keypad interaction capabilities that really help boost learner engagement (think gameshow buzzers!). We especially enjoy their Ultimate Game and Quiz Builder, where you can enter your own content and preferences—and a game is created within minutes.
Simpleshow: Explainer Videos
Have a complex topic that may need a simple explanation? Simpleshow offers explainer videos to tackle this quandary. Their team specializes in creating simple and engaging video solutions that transform your message into a convincing explainer video or interactive experience. We all know how important it is to incorporate microlearning into your training program—Simpleshow explainer videos are the perfect solution! They are short, smart, fun, and explanatory. Whether you incorporate them into your actual virtual training session or send as an extra add-in afterwards, explainer videos offer a unique way for knowledge transfer.
UMU: Course Creation
UMU stands for You, Me, and Us. This site helps you connect and engage your learners wherever, and whenever they’re learning. Their artificial intelligence capabilities allow you to create microlearning, assessments, practice activities, and more. Their course builder is especially intuitive! You can use UMU to create self-paced courses, interact with a live audience, or continually engage people throughout a blended learning program. Their AI-enabled platform empowers training leaders and educators to drive performance and results.
