Online overload?

Posted on Nov 28, 2012

Panic

 

Tomorrow I’ll be participating in Day 1 of a 2-day online activity entitled the Virtual Learning Show.

 

 

Here’s why I’m getting involved:

  • The titles and content of the sessions interest me (although I’ve been let down in the past in the gap between what was promised in a synopsis and what was delivered in the event itself)
  • I’m interested to see ‘how’ some of the ‘big names‘ facilitate their sessions as I’m always up for stealing a few ideas!
  • If I’m brutally honest though, what I’m really interested in is whether it’s feasible to run a days worth of online sessions. Admittedly they’re not back-to-back sessions, but my experience in the past has always been that of my ‘attention wandering’ towards the end of an hours session…..

How will I cope with multiple sessions over a day?

Am I the only one who finds even the *best* online sessions difficult to engage with beyond 45 mins?

I guess I’ll find out tomorrow…..

I made it to your post Woohoo. As you may have noticed I didn't last long on today's marathon lol session. I was at home so had kids to distract as well as the internet. I probably had similar interests as you - how do the webinar idols do there thing? I probably wasn't focused enough to get much out of it if I'm honest, but that in itself is a key take away. If I'm like that about stuff I'm interested in how's the average person at work going to feel?

@ryantracey Hi Ryan, I'm not a fan of tweeting during webinars, but I'll be blogging afterwards

Be interested in your experience, Craig. presume there will be a hefty amount on multi-tasking throughout the day!

Look forward to your next update...and yes 45 mins is a very long time online (but the ability to sneak out and make a coffee is always a bonus).
