Hi All,

We have faced similar challenged in Indonesia. Typically with our
trainings someone runs the powerpoint and talks at the front but then
we have other trainers around the trainees looking for problems and
providing help. There are also times we break into small groups. The
small groups can sometimes be limited by the lack of a way to show
everyone the instructors screen though. Typically we try to use two
projectors (I know a luxury) one shows the slides on the topic and the
other walks people through what to actual click.

How do you think doing remote training where an in person connection
has already been made? For example if participants had taken part in a
one or two day beginner class, but then could remotely receive
follow-up training? Perhaps having the initial face to face would
