Meet Mr. Clark.
Clark is an expert trainer in English Communication.
Clark has scheduled a live class in WizIQ Virtual Classroom on the topic ‘Public Speaking: Dos and Don’ts’ for today at 11.00 AM for 85 students.
Clark logs into his academy 15-20 minutes before the session to give his live class a final check.
Once he lands on the homepage of his academy, Clark clicks on the ‘menu’ at top-left.
In the side pan, he clicks the ‘live classes’ option.
On the ‘Live & Upcoming’ classes page, Clark finds his scheduled live class.
Clark pre-launches his live class – Public Speaking: Dos and Don’ts – at 10.45 AM.
Once in the class, he makes sure that the correct title is displayed at the top-left in the header panel.
In the ‘Workspace drop down menu’, he clicks on ‘Content’ option.
The Library opens up at the bottom of the screen, and Clark opens his course content files to review them before launch.
He clicks on the course presentation and opens the first slide.
Done! Clark is all set to start his live session!
At 11.00 AM, he clicks the ‘People’ icon in the top panel to check who is online.
He waits for another five minutes to allow all the attendees to join the class.
In the meantime, he checks if the session recording is ‘on’.
Clark starts the session by sending a ‘Hi’ to all the attendees on the ‘Public’ chat window.
If needed, he can chat with the individual attendees privately using the ‘Private’ chat option.
Clark starts teaching by going through his slides one-by-one.
In the first slide, he introduces the concept of public speaking and its crucial aspects.
He moves on to the nuances of public speaking, its best practices, verbal and non-verbal communication in public speaking, et cetera.
The presentation goes on for another 30 minutes.
After completing the presentation, Clark switches to the ‘full-screen’ layout to explain the key takeaways from the presentation.
He comes back to the ‘Workspace’ view and opens the ‘YouTube’ tab to play a historical speech delivered by Martin Luther King, Jr.
He wants his students to get a glimpse of one of the best speakers that history has ever produced and study his delivery method.
Clark enters the URL of the video and plays it.
Clark pauses the video now-and-then to detail out the notable sections of the speech.
The video plays for another 15 minutes.
After the video ends, an attendee ‘Raises hand’ using the ‘raise hand’ option and asks a question.
After answering his query, Clark creates a live poll to garner his attendees’ feedback on the video.
As the attendees answer the poll, he opens the ‘Whiteboard’ tab to explain a few more models and concepts of public speaking.
He explains one of the models on the role of content, confidence and correctness in public speaking using Venn diagrams, text boxes and annotations on the Whiteboard.
After teaching for another 10 minutes, Clark checks the time by clicking the ‘Timer’ in the top panel.
“Almost done! 5 minutes to go”, he thinks and saves the ‘Whiteboard’ data as PDF by clicking the ‘Save as PDF’ option in the ‘Workspace’ menu.
Before ending the session, he lets his students know that he will email the link to download the recording of the session.
After bidding goodbye to his students, Clark closes the session.
