Why are our online trainings so productive?

A look behind the scenes

No lazy compromise

Our online training courses were developed from scratch and designed “remote first”. We don’t enjoy boring video meetings ourselves, and we certainly don’t want to put you through that. Here we show you why our online training courses are so productive!

I was pleasantly surprised that both presentation and exercises in the group were more than equal to an on-site event!

How it works

Video Conferencing

See you

We always conduct our online training courses as video conferences. When trainers and participants see each other, it is much more pleasant for everyone. The trainers thus pay attention to facial expressions and gestures and can immediately respond to the participants. This makes it much easier to identify ambiguities or ask intermediate questions.

Real teamwork

All together on the whiteboard

The practical part of our trainings is especially important: only what you do yourself can really be understood. We use tools like Miro, which allows several participants to collaborate simultaneously in the browser on a virtual whiteboard. Switching between video conference and whiteboard is just a switch to another window. In contrast to on-site training, this creates a new dynamic: our experience shows that participants in online training courses are much more active. No one is left behind because there is no physical distance.

Good tools

Software that does not stand in the way

For video conferences we use Zoom - a tool that we have come to appreciate for its ease of use and installation as well as its high reliability. We also use it internally every day. Whiteboard tools such as Miro run in the browser and do not require any installation by the participants. After all, nobody wants to spend a training day installing software. For in-house trainings we are of course also happy to use software that you specify.

Well used breaks

There’s got to be time for that

There are also breaks in online training courses—and thus room for networking and further questions. Therefore, the video conference remains open outside the actual training sessions. Whether professional exchange with the trainers or a short coffee chat with the co-participants from the industry: there's got to be time for that!

Professional Hardware

Clearly understandable, clearly recognizable

Lighting, cameras, microphones—in order for the trainers to be able to transport their content in the best possible way, we operate a large hardware effort. Because nothing disturbs more than a bad picture of a speaker who is difficult to understand. We make sure that the participants can follow the material more easily, making the training more effective. For the participants a simple equipment is of course absolutely sufficient.

Participate from anywhere

More flexibility

We find: Further education should adapt to life, not the other way around. Online training eliminates travel costs and makes scheduling easier. Why travel across the country for several days when you can have dinner with your family after the training?

The best confirmation for our “remote first” approach is the feedback from our participants. Take a look at the first hand experience of synyx GmbH on one of our online trainings!

Of course, it is always a bonding experience to take part in a workshop together, to exchange ideas and spend time together. But we can only repeat, new challenges need an open approach and we were not disappointed. Michael Plöd impressed us once again with his professional preparation and execution, the workshop was incredibly productive and inspiring.

You still ask yourself: “Remote training, does it work?” Our trainer Dr. Lars Hupel has written a blog post on this subject, in which he explains the methodology of his blockchain training in an exemplary way.
