Overview and Background Teaching and professional training has never faced stronger pressures to go both inperson, online and hybrid has been and always will be about being about effective and efficient learning. To accomplish that strategically, the faster you can communicate, the faster you can change, and those corporations that change the fastest will be the most successful. Yet teaching organizations struggle because to increase the speed you need to increase the speed of the people who work with students of all kinds. Education is more than a yes-no but often a carefully orchestrated process that looks at what needs to be done and through the lifespan until the learning process changes. To accelerate the communications process means getting students and all others “on the same” page faster.

Session 1 – Introduction to Virtual Teaching Technologies ~1 Hour
Any group of teachers and students is comprised of some or all of the following traditional and virtual meeting elements:
- Audience – Students, Faculty, Leadership
- Venue and scheduling
- Agenda, purpose and format
- Discussion, dialog, attention, retention and interaction
- Research and presentation preparation
- Exchange and analysis of information separate from discussion
- Meeting reports and analysis
- Ratification of meeting and distribution of results
- Actions taken, if any
- Other activities
This session will focus on how virtual educational technologies enhance, engage, change, alter, and often diminish the way people communicate, conduct, evaluate and take actions from such an event. As it has been said many times, “communications will always fail, except by chance.” Or, if you prefer, what is said is not what is heard, not what is done.” This reflects the challenges of traditional educational settings which are often made worse by virtual meeting technologies Insights on how virtual meeting technology can be used to overcome and improve communications challenges will be presented.
Session 2 – Implementation of Virtual Technology Within Classrooms ~1 Hour
This session will focus on the technologies used or planned for as well as integrating traditional education delivery approaches. Aside from a review of what works better or worse for different kinds of meetings and activities. As it has been said with humor, “if you are boring face-to-face, you will still be boring via video.” With an education leader adding, “technology only makes it worse.”
- Video – real-time, still-frame, broadcast, streaming
- Audio – multi-person conference, broadcast, podcast, streaming
- Graphic – whiteboards, displays, graphics, and other webinar style presentations
- Augmented – artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality and emerging technologies
The process of teaching in today’s environment requires the “buy-in” or socialization from more and more people. We need better collaboration, but we also need not just faster but better improvements in the collaboration
process. If you consider that teachers and other participants may need time to plan courses, research content, complete tasks, visit classrooms, work with others you can see that the more complex the decision the more indepth the development to determine validity or potential outcome. In those situations, in which factual information is being exchanged in order to train students and provide educational studies show that only about half of the person’s time is actually spent communicating—sending or receiving information.
The classroom education process is one of kind of negotiation or dicussion requiring an exchange of opinions and argumentation. The reality is that the teacher spends as much as 75% of his or her time actually communicating with verifying each step of a document or process along the way. Nonetheless, other non-communicating activities, such as information retrieval and document reading, still make up 25% of the person’s time. In addition, another overlooked challenge did classroom attendees really understand what the teacher/presenter/speaker was trying to convey. That is, did they all agree on what was said, was what was heard and ultimately gets done? If you are boring face-to-face, you will still be boring via video and technology only makes you look worse. The goal of the VTP courses are not just to overlay technology to a fundamental problem of poor communication but the means to integrate enhanced technology with better educational communications processes.
Summary – Virtual Teaching Professional Certification is designed to provide faster, cheaper and effective ways for improved educational communications. Enhanced meeting technology options are complex and getting more so as there are fewer and fewer people in one place with more and more people in customer, technical labs, research centers, working at home, co-working, mobile, auto, train, plane with fewer onsite each using often very different technology. VTP can bring technology with business processes and operations that accelerates decisions faster with more involvement and allows for more thoughtful analysis.
“Leadership begins with great presentations, team building, collaboration and frankly being organized. The Procert gave me all these tools and much more to be a better CTO leader.” J.L
“Meetings are the bane of my business, however, nothing gets done without them. I needed skills and ideas to make meetings and business communications faster, reducing costs and frankly, much better. Virtual Pro did that – thanks.”
”This is the best course for better communications – period.” K.E Vendors:
“The class accelerates our conferencing and collaboration revenues reducing the learning cycle by demonstrating to our customers we are committed to user ‘driver training’ to help them make better presentations and use cases of our solutions.” D.T.
“I have been using video conferencing for a long time and so tired of hearing stories of the old conferencing system going unused because users aren’t really trained. That is, they try it and fail, especially C-levels, the course gives me a real competitive-edge showing we are committed to the customer now and in the future.” R.C.
