Create training videos

Depending on the task you can create a talking head video where you are actually talking to the camera and explaining each step, you can create a slide show video with text instructions that they can follow along with, or you can record a screen capture video that follows along as you demonstrate how to perform a task on the computer. The benefit of creating these, ‘how-to’ videos is that you can tell and show them exactly what you want them to know. While they are watching, they can pause the video to take notes, or rewind a section and watch it again.

Create an online course

There are websites online that will allow you to create an online training course to teach your virtual assistants the content that you want them to learn. There are several online vendors that provide either free, or low cost solutions for creating online training courses. One of the benefits of designing a course using a web based solution is that it allows you to create a quiz at the end of each module of training so that you can measure their understanding of the materials.
