We are looking at implementing possibly several new webinar series and I’m looking for best practice advice, the “clicky clicky” on how to set it up I can figure out for myself. What I want to avoid is the “dang I wish I had done that differently” hard lesson learned, by learning from you.
We are planning 2 series:
1 monthly “Lunch & Learn” series that covers the software updates in our proprietary business program
- offered only once a month to a closed group (pre-registered)
- We would like to be able to add handouts or resources as needed.
- I’m thinking this can be one course
The second will be a weekly, 15 minute bites of learning
- Offered weekly
- Open to all employees
- Short topics to become more efficient, professional and confident
- This could include anything from tricks in MS Office, Phone system, Asking questions in our University (Ask an Expert), Google Search Pro tips, time management, etc.
- Since this one is more all over the place, I don’t know if I should break it into courses by general topics (Office, Phone, Professionalism, etc.), or break it out by month (Bites of Learning - October), or keep it all in one course for reporting simplicity.
- What would you say are the design pros/cons of these options?
- I don’t believe there is one right answer that fits every scenario, the trick it determining the best answer for each scenario.

@tschoone, you didn’t say how interactive the sessions are planned to be, but have you considered using the Channels function for your 2nd series - either as an alternative to live webinars or as a way to distribute recordings of the live webinar sessions later, and get more replays/scalability from the sessions? Since those would be opt-in and on a regular cadence, might be a good opportunity to drive traffic to an informal learning opportunity for learners to self-serve and build good habits.
Is it too much to hope for that the 15 minute Bites of Learning can be made so much fun that people will want to attend the live session? (Oh I have a dream!)
If it were individual courses, it could clutter catalogs (if added to any) and muddy search results in the platform.
You will need to configure the session to be manually marked as completed, so users will keep seeing the course as in-progress. You can use notifications sent a week or two before an event to keep them in the loop about newly scheduled meetings.
Regarding, suggestion from
@jennadionn - note that Docebo is treating “sessions” as equivalent to each other - so users, in their UI, can only enroll themselves in a single session, and once they are enrolled in a session, they don’t see information about other available sessions.
Using events will alleviate all those issues + will provide all benefits mentioned by
@jennadionn of keeping everything in one place, and allowing you to enroll new hires to watch replays of previous events.
Thank you all! (Kudos to
@jennadionn and @alekwo) I will be asked to implement ILTs soon enough - there are really solid tips in this thread!
