Operate effectively in today’s ever-changing environment by taking your business, classrooms, training sessions, meetings, healthcare and other professional services online.

From distance learning and telehealth to virtual retailing and more, online platforms enable you to reach more people, respond faster, and conserve resources, while maintaining social distancing protocols. It may not be business as usual, but it gets the job done!

Managing a (Suddenly) Remote Team/Class

If moving in-person activities to virtual ones, here are some tips:

  1. Necessary Equipment: Ensure your team/faculty has a laptop, webcam, internet and web conferencing software. Most of the people in your organization already have the basic hardware they need to get started.
  2. Network Precautions: Be sure to give some thought to how you’re going to handle the strain on your network.
  3. Recordings: Develop a way to keep all class recordings organized for easy retrieval.
