Ever since I first read Stafford Beer’s ‘Designing Freedom’ (created for 1973 CBC Massey Lectures) over 30 years ago, I have taken a cup half full view on technology. Sure, technology frustrates, infuriates, and worse. It also allows us to do things that make the world a more just and caring place.

A belief in the good side of technology has writ large, as an influence, in my work life; first as a computer programmer, business analyst and project manager in the tech sector; then in the field of online dispute resolution, where I still reside, and now supplemented with enabling teams and organizations to work together, and do good, via virtual channels.

Virtual Collaboration is just another step on the ‘better world through technology journey’. We can do good things anywhere and everywhere, small and big things. Over to you… make a difference, virtually.

Why a Virtual Collaboration e-course?

Many of your in-person communication, collaboration, and facilitation skills transfer nicely to the virtual medium. Others can easily get watered down, or even lost, in virtual contexts. And, then, there are some skills which are unique to working virtually. The challenges:

Virtual Collaboration, the e-course, ties it together; bridging old and new ways of work. Building on a foundation of effective virtual communication and relationship skills, it shows how to apply those skills using appropriate virtual collaboration frameworks and tools, facilitate virtual conversations, meetings and teams, and have some learning fun along the way.

Virtual Collaboration, the e-course:

  • adopts a micro-learning approach; learning in small chunks
  • provides user-friendly interface and course navigation
  • utilizes screen casts, videos and images throughout; the power of visual learning
  • contains thoughtful activities to test your understanding of the material
  • includes complementary downloadable resources
  • offers an (optional) certificate on completion

You will know how to:

  1. Effectively communicate, i.e., get your message across, in the virtual medium, regardless of the channel.
  2. Apply “appropriate” frameworks and tools to your virtual conversations, meetings and teams.
  3. Facilitate virtual collaboration in ways that both: get things done AND enhances personal connection and relationship.

As a result, not only will your personal virtual collaboration capacity grow, you’ll also be positioned to increase the value of your work, to others.
