Our Talks: MOVING DELIVERY ONLINE

In this bespoke session we share our experiences at CyberSafeKids of having to move our educational programme from in-person delivery to online delivery in a matter of weeks at the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis.

The session will cover our story of how we managed this transition, the basic principles and pitfalls of delivering live, interactive content via webinar, as well as our initial failures and ultimate successes. We will also look at personal privacy for presenters, the online safety of participants and whether to adapt or rethink activities for the online space.

The session is designed for any organisation looking to apply key principles to effective online delivery and develop good 'netiquette' and safeguarding for their online programmes.
