Episode Three | What does it mean to truly 'go digital'?

Have you really gone digital? Or have you simply switched to using Microsoft Teams? Many organisations claim to fully embrace ‘going digital’ but simply translate their face-to-face activities online. We can use digital technologies and tools within learning to complement face-to-face training and deliver learning programmes that are digitally based.

In this podcast episode, host Jez Anderson, Learning Solutions Consultant at Virtual College and guest Paul Westlake, Digital Director at People Unboxed, unpack what it means to “go digital”. They offer practical advice on how to fully embrace digital technology within training and give you some great examples of digital tools you can use to engage and interact with your learners.
