Typically, implementing online training is an incremental process. You start with employee training, roll out a few courses, hold a webinar, then start educating your customers, and so on. But, due to the current climate, things have changed.

If ILTs and webinars are playing a big part in your online training, we suggest you integrate your preferred tool with your LMS. A speedy process (setting up a direct integration only takes a minute) you’ll be able to schedule sessions and report on attendees, all within the LMS. 

Record your Zoom Meetings to Create eLearning Video

ILTs and webinars are the perfect training type to repurpose. Done in a couple of clicks, you can record your Zoom sessions, then add them as a module or course to your LMS, so that your learners continue to get value from them.
