The global pandemic has dramatically changed many aspects of our personal and professional lives, including learning and development. While the transformation from traditional face-to-face training to virtual alternatives has been ongoing for decades, it has gone into overdrive in just the past month thanks to COVID-19.

As the entire workforce struggles to reskill, whether they sit in the same office or see each other on a computer screen, the challenge ahead of us is to deliver impactful, easy to deploy development opportunities that enable people to learn new skills to succeed in the new normal. Korn Ferry offers best-in-class e-Learning and Virtual Classroom Experiences that ensure that talent development can continue entirely online, regardless of geographic location and time.

The best virtual classroom experiences keep learners engaged in three ways:

  • verbal
  • kinesthetic
  • visual

How we can help you

The virtual classroom experience brings together a comprehensive web-conferencing platform with insightful instructional design, to deliver an engaging and interactive experience for participants, growing their skills and moving them toward behavior change. They can be used in two ways:
