Teleconference Meetings: Telelecture Versus Telelearning

There is a whole lot to learn when it comes to the internet. If you are internet savvy, though, chances are that you know all about using teleconferencing software and how to use it to the fullest extent possible. There are still many who are clueless, though, and it should be the goal of everyone to disseminate the information quickly to everyone on the ‘net. Nevertheless, though, there are still hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people, who are engaged in using teleconference software to fulfill their various needs. Whether it’s attending a presentation that someone is putting on for their business opportunity or listening to a potential money-making business, there are many uses for teleconference software on the internet.

But just as there is a whole lot to learn about the internet, there is also a whole lot to learn about teleconference meetings and software. For example, do you know the difference between “TeleLearning” and “TeleLecture”, These two words are basic concepts that business professionals use everyday in order to conduct teleconference meetings about one thing or another. But they are also vitally important to understand if you are the host of the teleconference because you do not want to give potential partners and prospects the wrong idea about what your meeting will be like. So here is the basic rundown of what a “TeleLecture” is and what “TeleLearning” is, and how to go about meeting for each one.

TeleLecture

The idea of the TeleLecture is simple: many people want the same information and your task is to get it to them successfully. Hosting teleconference meetings by using a TeleLecture is basically the same process as a professor lecturing to his or her students. In this type of meeting, the host (you) are simply presenting one big presentation to the participants of the teleconference meeting. There will usually be an agenda that you’ll have in mind and your task is to stick to the lecture or presentation. Following the presentation it may be a good idea to open up the teleconference meeting to some vital questions from your audience and members.

TeleLectures are able to accommodate hundreds of people and participants are able to come and go as they please. This is a perfect setting if you are just giving out vital information about the business you are involved with or some other goal along the same lines!

TeleLearning

On the other hand, a TeleLearning session is something that is vitally different. Instead of having hundreds of participants on the teleconference meeting at once, there are only a handful of people who will be involved. This is basically the same process as a high school teacher teaching his or her 15-30 students. In other words, TeleLearning sessions are designed to help individuals by one-on-one question and answer sessions, coaching, and molding of the learning process.

Since you now know what exactly a TeleLecture and a TeleLearning session is then you can now market it as such and make sure that potential participants are getting the right information. If you market your teleconference meeting as something in which participants can go and come as they please then more people may be inclined to participate. However, participants of the TeleLearning session generally know what they are getting into. All in all, though, these are vital terms and understandings of different teleconference meetings!
